And they did. Thanks, Pierre.

Am I whistling in the wind, though? No vendor comments, no great deal of interest, just a few ripples. Ah well. I think it's a good thing anyway.

Bah. I hate undergraduates.

8 students. Two fail to hand anything in from their Easter holidays, one has done the wrong paper, and two fail to turn up to the supervision. Sometimes I wonder why I still care.

New Advogato Features

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
