As i type this, i'm on a flight to Seattle with Greg to visit some friends. Well, most of them visit the bay area enough that i don't really need to go to Seattle to see them, but it was a good excuse to get out of the bay for a weekend. Alaska Air never leaves on time, but at least the flight is only half-full, so we got to pick our own seats and spread out in them. Greg is already asleep.

Life at Eazel has slowly been disassembling itself. Those who work on Nautilus have continued plugging at it, but those of us who used to work on Trilobite or the server have been pretty unfocused. The reef project seems like a very cool idea, but it's hard to be motivated into working full-steam on it if the company may not exist in a few more weeks. So i've mostly ended up doing many small projects on it, scattered around: fixing up a few python libraries, doing a few proof-of-concept sample scripts, and doing a lot of maintenance things we'd put off before.

In the meantime, i've also done some non-trivial work on say2, worked with Arlo to get our mp3 server kicked into shape and looking a lot cooler, caught up on some of my huge backlog of mail, and gone for a lot of coffee runs at the cafe across the street. Eskil, Arlo, Ian, Mike and i have practically made it into a secondary office, though i'm not sure lots of coffee is the best way to deal with employment uncertainty.

The weather has been nice enough that i've been biking to work almost every day (figured that it would be pretty hard to find another job close enough to bike to from home). Now that it's time to type it in, i'm realizing that i really haven't done that much in the past couple of weeks.
