This evening, in the Free Press, I discovered a new pair; "Seismic" and "Section", somewhat to my dismay. The odds of having a quiet dinner in the pub and then overhearing someone discussing the interpretation of seismic sections must be pretty slim really, but it did actually happen to me. I assume they must be associated either with BIRPS or the Schlumberger Research Lab. Once highlighted I kept picking up bits of their conversation, which was rather distracting.
As I left they were discussing a problematic GeoFrame file that was too large to fit on an Exabyte (and hence they couldn't conveniently back it up). My geek and professional natures had a little war about whether I should go and proffer professional advice, but in the end the fundamental impossibility of initiating conversation with three young women won out, and I left the pub with no more than an amused grin on my face.
