"If Library Directors did not exist we would be forced to create them."
                           --Karl Marks, "Das Kapital"

"Library Directors are the opiate of the masses."
                           --Lee Trots, "Just Execute Them All"

"I'm sorry, but since you are a Library Director I feel that I must disown and disinherit you for bringing such shame upon the family."
                           --My Mother

Things are better now. First I vented to you. After that I realized I didn't actually CARE what this woman thought of me, and besides , her assumptions were wrong. So I turned the issue over to the new director.

Then I went on a run, and now I feel better. Thanks, siblings.

leaned myself on a cask of brandy
It was my fancy, I do declare
For when I'm drinking, I'm always thinking
Wishing Peggy Gordon was there

I was afraid that might happen after I saw the story in the paper. I'm not sure the MOU contains a deadline, though.

Once a donation is made and sent in, it is no longer the donor's to define or control. If the lady felt slighted, tell her "Sorry" and no more.

Shane would probably have said to her something like, "Go flip yerself sideways from Sunday," and then hung up on her.

Great news!

The National Research Council of Canada Institue for Research in Construction has ceased snailmail of "Construction Innovation" and has moved to an online-only format.

This will save me approximately 1,054,350 cubic mm of storage space per year. This place is really gonna start shaping up. I nearly broke a fingernail typing so fast when I signed up for the cybersubscription.

This is the most exciting Friday night on Leeside Drive in years.

I have two piles in my office. One on the left and one on the right. The path between them is where I walk to my chair.

I can't wait for the day that I can take all of the incorporated business papers and burn the lot. I shutter down several years back and just put it all in one 4door filing cabinet and one large pile under the 8' long dining table that never gets used. Revenue Canada requires records for seven years. I begged them to audit me but they said, "Nahhhh... but we might so keep everything in case we do." They are evil.

Dear MOM,
I am so displeased! A very mean lady from a community organization just called to say angry, hurtful things to me about how their organization was not given due consideration or public gratitude in a recent newspaper article regarding a donation they made to the library. She was so mean, and shot personally targeted barbs that I don't feel I deserved! At what point, after a person or organization makes a donation, does that entity's hold on the item relax? I need to go back and read the Memorandum of Understanding again, carefully. But I still don't think it makes any mention of being able to perpetually gum up the gears of our decisions!

Whew! Thanks for letting me vent.

Eiseley

Do what I do. Take it all off the desk and put it on another flat surface. Clean the dust off the desk. Maybe use some Windex. Then bring the pile of papers back and go through them one by one, separating them into

- stuff not needed ever again
- stuff to be filed away
- stuff still needed

Throw out the first lot. File the second. Get to work on the third.

You'll find stuff you'd forgotten about a long time ago. ;-)

I do this about every 3 or 4 months when I can't bear the mess any longer. Now if I could summon up the nerve to take on the entire room! Or the storage building (shudder).

I've lost a paper in the pile of papers on my desk. Such a sad state of affairs. I must do some filing. Or borrow a trash barrel and dump it all in a box to tote outside and burn it. That sounds awfully tempting.

It's actually a factor of Qr, but only is a perfect vacuum. The less perfect the vacuum the higher the resistance, ζq.

I was wondering about themagnetic permeability of free space, which is:

_0=4*10^-7 N/A^2

expressed in newtons per ampere squared (N A^2). IT is a measure of the amount of resistance encountered when forming a magnetic field in a classical vacuum.

The permeability of free space seems much greater when forming a field of BS, or any other high-frequency thought pattern, which (as we have all learned from Mom) transmits through free space with the speed of Is. Is this a function of frequency, or some factor Q? Just askin'.

Stilly, you posted the answer to Amos' problem. I saw it, briefly, and I found it mathematically elegant and quite simple when you understood it.

ANyway I think the gxx is beginning to make sense as one component of the 9-value matrix of the G tensor...

psychogony (n.)

Originally: the origin of the soul; a treatise dealing with this (obs.).
Later also: = psychogenesis.

Used in a sentence in 1902 by H. Sidgwick:

"It remains to consider how far our study of the nature of mind is affected by investigations of its past history, i.e. how far Psychology is dominated by Psychogony."

I am having a terrible time trying to figure out the derivation a G-tensor based on a set of voltages measured at a each coil in a polygonal array of antenna coils, because the guy who wrote the script starts with scalars and translates them into vectors using a uniform locational vector and the scalar voltage, and I just don't see how he gets the three-axis tensor from that. It's some crafty trick but it has me exhausted trying to follow it. I like folk music much better.

If he wants to start something he can do so. I'm not responsible for the results inflicted upon him; neither will I refrain from injuring him because he can't help being who he is ("You can choose your friends..."). I don't PLAN to be in Blind River any time in the near or distant future. On the other hand, I will invite him to visit the Big Lost River area anytime he wishes. I don't hold a grudge and will even show him the good fishing spots -- they're up in the mountains because the BLR is pretty much dry throughout most of its length for most of the year...but there really ARE trout up in the headwaters.

It is frustrating when someone choses a house at random to make their five-finger shopping trip, and it happens to be yours. But rather than let that anger eat you, spend the energy making sure it won't happen again. One thing that you need to remember is that they know you'll soon have all brand new stuff to replace what was stolen. "The tyranny of the stolen old battery" they call it on Car Talk. The old battery is stolen from a car so when the new one is put in to replace it, that's what the thieves really wanted.
