Work is already becoming routine.

Today I fleshed out the papers I've been writing for explanation of thermocouples, op-amps, and duty cycles. I also talked to my mom about how she and my dad tried out for Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? They took a 30 question multiple choice test. After that the people who did well enough passed to the next round. My dad made it! They interviewed him (he said it went well), and if he is accepted he'll receive a postcard. One of the ladies there was disqualified for having been on The Weakest Link.

I lost my wallet and spent all day looking for it. It was next to my alarm clock.

We ate at Bertucci's in Wellesley today. I couldn't pay because I had lost my wallet.

My Handspring Visor Prism is hosed. I dropped it and now the backlight doesn't work at all. Everything else works fine. I'm going to see if it's cheap to fix it. If not, I'll try myself or get Prof. Gill Pratt to help me perhaps. I sure miss the poor sucker. (the Visor, not Gill. I see Gill daily; he employs me.)

Leighton finished the Partner Year DVD. It looks very nice. Dan made a wonderful 3D intro in 3D Studio Max based on the Universal Pictures logo. Leighton managed to fit all six episodes of The History and Mystery of Mars on there. I made the menus for it, so I'm happy, although maybe it wasn't such a good idea to stay up until 3:30 am last night to do it.
