Time for me to go hang out with 5000 other geeks. Yes, it's scientific meeting time. Time for bad talks, overwhelming numbers of people, too much coffee, beer and good science. This year it's in Baltimore. I'll also get to go to one of my all time favorite restaurants - the Helmand. Maybe more than once.
Sorry you won't be there DocStymie. You'll be missed. I'll have some Kaddo Borawni for you.
After Baltimore I have to spend a couple of days at a workshop at the National Science Foundation in Washington, DC. It'll be a long trip (for me) - Friday to Friday. I hate being away from the family that long. The meeting will be good, but not being with the lovely L and the kids will suck.
No word of the post tonight. I'm too knackered.
