A little quicker update this time. The fall semester has begun and and I think I nailed the last quiz in my Statics class. My brain seems to be coming back online. I got an invitation to join the Golden Key Honour Society at CSUN and they look legit. I went to a dinner meeting last night with Debian developers to strengthen the web-of-trust. We met because the DPL (Bdale Garbee) was in town. He seems to be a very interesting guy. I was impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I need to get out for more social events like this. I saw that the LA Slashdot MEETUP was also held last night. I still have not attended one of them. Dan Kegel sat one seat away from me and I never knew who he was. I was the last one to show up so I missed all the introductions and early conversations. I would have loved to tell Dan how useful his web site was when I was doing my ISDN research. I also met Michael Elkins who developed mutt. He mentioned the Scripting Languages article here which explains my visit today. I have lots of homework to do today so I better finish this key signing tangent and crack the books.
