It’s been a while…

Well, it’s been a while since I last posted. I’ve been busy at work being a “Mad Scientist (TM)” and the Internet connection at the VA doesn’t work so well. So I’m finally getting a chance to update things at home (Alex keeps us busy). I’ve updated my About, Research, and Publications pages and added a new video of Alex reading. I finally tried a Kindle. I like the eBook concept and the eInk screen, but the Kindle 2 was too small for reading PDFs, so I sent it back and will either get a Kindle DX or a Plastic Logic QUE depending on availability of the QUE. We’re going to buy a few Apple tablets at work, but I don’t think that will be a good eReader solution unless Apple surprises everyone with some new display technology. I’ll post an update on Thursday when I find out about the QUE (announcement at CES). I’m hoping they’ll be available immediately at B&N.

Dissertation Approved

Well my defense last Monday was successful. My dissertation was approved by the grad school on Wednesday. I cleaned out my office and turned in my keys on Friday. I’m finally done. I will post my dissertation soon along with a discussion of the work.

Work Updates

My dissertation is almost done. I’ve got interesting results to share here after I defend. The same goes for the fractal stuff, there are two papers in the works and I’ll post the details here after they’ve been accepted.
