Afternoon Update :
I hate listserv. I just thought you should know that. I suppose it's probably not strictly listserv's fault, but rather our backasswards implimentation of it. I'm trying to fix 900 lists on the server for another campus that got scrod when we had a hardware failure. The change I need to make would take several seconds of my life to make if I had direct access to the list data... but I don't. My only access is through the listserv management web interface which pretty much blows gophers. I'd rather not fix all 900 of these by hand, so I'm trying to script it. But somewhere between my brain and the stupid NT box on the other end, things are going seriously wrong. I'm so pleased.

Nice lunch w/ the gang today. Sushi. Ed is still pushin' to go see 'Coyote Ugly'. The rest of us remain sceptical. I say we should go see 'Rocky & Bullwinkle' before it leaves the $2 theatre.... Jeremy says "...there ain't enough drugs in all the world...".

Hey jschauma, what I meant was, yer web page is a dazzling spectacle. Kinda cool... lots of bells and whistles. Sleek and ultra-modern, like living in the not-too-distant future. But perhaps a bit much for my taste. And that's probably fine. :) It seems to barf once you leave the first page though. But perhaps it's high time I did a netscape upgrade.

Been having some nice conversation with Joad about happiness, physical location in the universe, and the population density of Alaska. My favorite line so far... "Up in Nome they say 'there's a woman behind every tree'. Up in Nome it's all tundra."

It seems I probably owe Chris a bit of a 'sorry dude' . So here goes... sorry dude.

When you have two important projects coming due, and you have a lot of work to do on both of them, how do you decide which one gets all the brain cycles, and how do you make it go? I'm finding myself thinking about project A while working on project B, to the point of distraction. So I go work on project B instead, and I start thinking about project A. *sigh*
