From firstname.lastname@example.org on Diaspora: So yeah, if you didn't know already, #Ubuntu 14.04 LTS is out with 5 years of support! Now starts the journey to larger (hint: Unity 8, Mir) changes on the road the the next long term support version in 2 years :)about a day ago from NavierStokesApp at 32°46'59"N 96°48'24"W

It is too bad that no one on this panel on the BICEP2 results is actually on BICEP2. One of the panelist just ripped on BICEP2 for having only one data processing stream that was written in MATLAB. Apparently in PLANK they have 2 steams, neither in MATLAB. Maybe BICEP2 data is easier to process than PLANK. Who knows...about 4 days ago from web
Time to walk to the workshop venue. It's quite a haul from my hotel, but it's a lovely walk through Rome so what do I care? :-)about 5 days ago from NavierStokesApp at 32°46'59"N 96°48'24"W
Arrived in Rome. Slept 0 hours on the plane here. Spent half the day walking around Rome to get my bearings, find my hotel, and keep awake. Now I'm walked out and resting at the hotel.about 5 days ago from NavierStokesApp at 32°46'59"N 96°48'24"W
LHR to CDG flight is apparently delayed 1.5 hours. Looks like I will missy train.
Another 15 minute delay and the guy next to me put both his bags in the overhead bin, completely filling the space. And no, I am not in a bulkhead seat.
Another 15 minute delay, but this time I see them towing a plane to my gate. Is there hope?
This is the 5th time AA has delayed this flight. They are 15 minuting me to death!
Flight to Rome boards soon. I will post updates and pics when I am settled on the ground in Rome.
Boarded my flight to Chicago. Got upgraded to first. A perk of too much goddamn international travel. ;-) For SCIENCE!!!!!!
Oh, and as usual: there is a 68% chance that the minute I leave home my server will die. So, fingers crossed on my pump server remaining alive during this trip.
Getting ready to head to the airport for my flight to Chicago. My flight to Rome leaves tonight at 5pm. I will have Sunday to get my bearings in Rome, find my hotel, and walk about seeing the sights in my usual effort to remain awake for the first long day of international travel. A brisk walk to the Pantheon and the old city seems in order. I do love Roman architecture.
Heading to Rome tomorrow for the ATLAS Higgs Workshop. Looking forward to being out of the academic environment and getting back into some real physics, if only for a week or so. Semester is nearly at an end, but this will be a welcome break from the usual school routine.about 7 days ago from NavierStokesApp at 32°46'59"N 96°48'24"W
Just had a lovely evening with friends. What a great way to end a day that otherwise would have ended only with a stressful faculty meeting.about 8 days ago from NavierStokesApp at 32°46'59"N 96°48'24"W

Another “early Thursday.” I have two identical presentations to give this morning. Then maybe…. just maybe…. I can do something involving actual research.about 8 days ago from NavierStokesApp at 32°46'59"N 96°48'24"W

What a day. What a day, what a day, what a day. And now I can just rest.about 9 days ago from NavierStokesApp at 32°46'59"N 96°48'24"W
