No Work This Weekend, I swear! March 31, 2006

My wife had the following to say when I said I wouldn't be working on our weekend trip to Vancouver:

 “I’ll bring my portable, but no work.” hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

But, I have a secret weapon. It arrived in email this morning, as I knew it would:

ClueD0 nodes will be shutdown automatically on Saturday morning 6:00am.

The batch server will stop scheduling new jobs late Friday evening.

 

Due to the length of the power outage and the additional power outage on Monday morning, don't expect any ClueD0 services on Sunday either.

So, I can't do work even if I want to!

….

Ok. I guess I could review some papers or something like that… Darn.

I’m not working this weekend either! I’m going to go out on my bike and explore my new home (first spring for us here). Besides, my first postdoc starts on Monday, so I will finally have full-time lab help.

That said, I will probably do some work tomorrow… (BTW, does helping to recruit new faculty count as work?)

Kevin — depends how much wine you drink at the recruiting!

I managed to go the whole weekend. I’m scared to look at the size of my inbox…
