The Hunt...

Well, the job hunt is still on. Although, it's sort of on hold until I finish the two tests I have coming up on Thursday. I'm having a tough time studying for one of them, though, because it seems likely that whatever new job I take will require me to drop it. That's the problems with full time jobs and daytime classes. Oh, well. I can hope, anyway.


Michael: I, for one, would be very interested in a site like you proposed. I've just recently become interested in LaTeX, as I progress into the desire for finer control than is capable with LyX (which is a most excellent program, I must say.) I would love a site that contained different types of LaTeX documents. My LaTeX skills are rather limited at the moment, but if there's anything I can do to help out, let me know.

The IRC Pain...

I've discovered just how much of a pain it is to try to IRC from a single remote terminal window, while chatting on 4 active channels and managing 2-4 queries. Text based clients, through a single window, just can't handle this kind of thing well. The pain of trying to converse this way is wearing on me. If I weren't such a hopeless addict, I'd find something more productive to do with my time.

The Scheme...

dnm: I was intrigued by your comments on Scheme, and I found your project for the R6RS work. I have only recently discovered what an amazing thing Lisp (and particularly Scheme) is, but I've already come to love it. If there is anything I can do to help, just let me know. I'd be very interested in participating however I can working towards the new report and/or standard.
