Nice weekend, this one. Pleasant weather for biking this morning -- did the short route of only 27 miles, but pedalled with the fast group and broke a sweat this time. Shelley needed the car, so not enough time for the middle route. I hope for that next weekend. Found out about a ride called "The Grand Tour" that I may try for next summer: it's 200 miles in a day. Took my bike through a Krispy Kreme drive-thru window and got a key lime monthly special this morning (not a great flavor).

Spent a bunch of time shopping for components to make my Battlefield: Glass project in Pasadena and Burbank. It has to be completed next weekend, and so far, so good. I'll write more about it later, but suffice for now to say that part of it required buying a diamond-studded Dremel cutting blade in order to saw through the base of two lightbulbs.

Finished up Marine Dive-Bomber Pilot at Guadalcanal, a good first-hand account of one man's experiences in WW II. He wrote it long after the events he describes, though, so it probably suffers compared to something written closer to its events. I like this kind of book generally and it's fun to buy them at good prices from various places on the web.

Implemented a significant bug fix for Flattops. Always a nice feeling to take care of something like that. Time to implement some new features and make more bugs.

Applied another coating of blue grout on the mosaic sink since most of the first came out in haste to get the project done for photos originally. Still have to clean off the glass and then add a seond layer of grey to finish it once and for all.

Life has stabilized for a few weeks at least. I will be writing to a professor at UCLA this week to see about open positions in a lab there. They need someone with my technical skills, and he told me in February to write back in July to see whether they made their grants.
