Anything worth doing is worth overdoing

Sorry about posting in triplicate yesterday. Blogger was acting a bit funny and it never seemed (to me) to actually load the entry. I probably didn't notice since I deposited my dissertation and was used to seeing the same form 3 or 4 times.

And, for those of you sitting on the edges of your seats, I officially accepted the Central Florida gig. So ends my job search. I even got to withdraw from a search today. That was a fun letter to write.

It is amazing how quickly the glums and blahs of the job search melt away when you get one. To all my brethren still in the trenches, fighting the good fight, I will not forget you.
