1) This week is finals week, so I definitely won't be checking DA much. Sorry 'bout that.
2) On Memorial Day (so a week from tomorrow) I'm going down to New Mexico for three weeks to do some geologic field work in the mountains there. I won't be back til about June 13th, so you won't see me around for quite a bit. Feel free to leave me nice comments for my return, as I will be suffering in the 95 degree weather.
