Today I turn twenty-three years old. To be honest, that seems to cross an imaginary boundary in my mind. I’m no longer just a year older than 21, if that makes much sense.
Today’ll be pretty much like every other as far as I know. We’re in a mini-crunch at work and time-sharing some hardware, so I’ll be online before I walk out the door in the morning, and in the lab an hour or so early so we can get the most out of our time on the machine in question.

Jacque, I’m glad to hear you’re feeling better, Bullet’s in better shape, and you’re contributing to making some people’s lives better!
Chris, I feel your pain.
Igor, insightful as always, assuming you can get through the marketing-speak.
