This and that

Frances Allen, the first woman to receive the ACM Turing Award, was interviewed in the recent newsletter of the ACM-W (PDF). I've blogged about Fran before here and here and here.

Yesterday I ran some errands: returned stuff to IKEA, bought different stuff at IKEA, went to the post office, delivered a Mary Kay order, went to the bank, returned Terabyte's x-rays to the vet along with the report from the specialist, and picked up Cassie to dog-sit for a while. It was much cooler yesterday, thank goodness. Today I need to fold and staple 100 booklets that were ordered yesterday so that I can get them in the mail. And I need to decide what data set I'm going to use for my phd research...I had been working on one direction, now i'm contemplating a direction change.
