Rohit visited us during his spring break last weekend. He helped us buy our chicks and get them started, we went to the Celestial Seasonings factory tour, and we had Narooz dinner at the Tajik restaurant in Boulder. We also took Harvey to the reservoir, where he got wet for the first time. I tricked him into the water by throwing a stick there, and as soon as he got in he forgot about the stick and just splashed around for fun. But then he realized that the water is actually quite cold, and left. I could not entice him to return.

I have a dog blanket. It provides many of the same benefits as an electric blanket, but occasionally bites my ear.

Apparently Harvey considers this position to be quite comfortable.

The Somers household has its first massively parallel supercomputer. I'm typing this post from the system service processor of my new SiCortex SC072 personal supercomputer. It's a 12-node, 72-core, 90 GFlop desktop supercomputer. Lucky for me, this company went out of business and now the used market is flooded with their products. I got mine for 93% off list price! Right now I'm still just setting it up, but I can't wait to run some SPICE simulations.
