One hint, Sean: Get good advertising; it helps pay for dinner.
But actually much of the morning was stuck in a car dealership trying to get a brake mechanism repaired that was making very whiny sounds. It's about 5 below zero here and cars naturally have this resistance to performing, but this sound was out of hand. I tried to see if I could blog from my Treo, but I'd've had to do it by post-by-mail and I couldn't proof anything. And had I, I wouldn't have been getting ready for a talk Saturday in DC at the AIPRG conference. (It's from the project I did in August.) I had lunch with a friend and had to admit I had spent most of my morning reading compilation guides from the IMF's balance of payments than anything else, and in fact enjoying myself.
