I'll be afk for the next few days en route to Virginia, then online sporadically for a few days, then gone again for a week plus while on the Outer Banks in North Carolina.
Other news: Carleton has implemented a somewhat pain-in-the-ass meeting requirement for part-time grad students on very short notice, so I met with my supervisor yesterday. The good news is, he's cool with where I'm at and going. The bad news is, I'm having a slight bitch of a time getting my mechanical resonators to do what I want them to.
Also, my former startup continues to fade: despite the CPR being administered by the president, the corpse is, in my opinion, starting to smell.
So, off for 2.5 weeks of doing not too much! I figure I'll get through about 12 to 20 books, given that we're driving both ways. I was going to buy a stash here, until I looked at the cover prices, thought about the Canadian dollar being over 0.93 US and climbing, and figured I'd be better off buying books down there.
Wish me luck: I'm off to the land of the free, from which I will hopefully return on schedule and not by way of Gitmo, Iraq, Syria or other "interesting" way station!
