 I'm still here and very interested!

 I finally quit my job at UVA, and I've just gotten around to switching
my email subscriptions to another account ( either sdm7g@mac.com or
majewss@cstone.net ) and getting it hooked up to OSX's mail client
( as well as moving lots of work onto my personal laptop from my
former office machines ).

beach with my two boys. When I get back (besides job hunting) I'm
