INS told me yesterday, the 3rd of January 2001, that my H1B visa has been granted on the 17th of December 2000. Hooray! It only took them 60 days to process it. <Insert sarcasm here>
I am really glad that it was approved. Now to fight with my colleges to get leave for Chinese New Year, which happens to fall on the 24th of January this year. <Insert sigh of relief here>
I figured out what project I want to do under Squeak: a UML draw tool based on the MVC model. Hopefully, it would turn out to be a constructive learning experience. I borrowed Volumes I and II of LaLonde and Pugh's "Inside Smalltalk" from the Cleveland State University Library for reference. Later this afternoon, I'd be heading down to the Cleveland Public Library to get some references for UML. <Insert library support comment here>
And now... Work!
