Oh what a relief it is to have finally decided what to do about the new job offer: take it.

I have been talking to a lot of people today, some of whom did not have nice things to say about others.

On Monday I spoke again with the dean whom I'll be working for (her name's Joyce) regarding office space, college web server platforms, my desktop system, and playing at archaeology in the summer.

Her responses (in order): private hard door office with window; if I can justify a move to some flavor of Unix from Windows then go for it; whatever I want's okay (hello iMac!); be sure all your work's done, and here, take this laptop with you to stay in touch!
