Long time since my last update. I've been "heads down" at work for the past month. Sadly, I don't feel like I have much to show for it. I have a Langevin dynamics scheme implemented now. God(dess) only knows if its working correctly. It appears that "working" is a platform dependent thing. Yes, on Compaq Alphas - No, on IBM Power3's.

Been giving a lot of thought to doing an analysis of the employer/employee relationship in terms of a social contract. The inspiration for this was my reading of Death March, Edward Yourdon and Your Money or Your Life, by Joe Dominguez.

Still, its probably a waste of time.

I'll probably continue to be "heads down" at least for another 2-3 months. Unfortunately, this means no hacking on Finance::Quote for some time. Sorry, Paul.
