New Star Trek movie was epic! My favorite line was when Bones said "You don't rob a bank when your getaway car has a flat tire." :)@sparky

I am only going to say this once: Katie Holmes is the T.J. Eckleburg of Tel Aviv.
I like that Swiss Airports seems to consistently provide 1 hour of free wifi before making you pay.
On my way from Geneva to Tel Aviv via Zurich. Currently on layover in Zurich. My Higgs subgroup is having its annual workshop at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Sunday-Tuesday of this week. Our goal is to have a VERY concentrated workshop and give people a chance to get back and participate in ATLAS Physics and Performance Week.

When it's running Debian call me then I might care, ha!
its running a 'Debian based' distro =)
Arrived in #Zurich for my connection to #TelAviv. I have a bit of a layover here - my flight isn't until 09:45 and it's presently 06:51. The flight from #Geneva to #Zurich was one of the best I've ever had. The flight attendant INSISTED that I move to the right side of the plane so that I could take my coffee and croissant with a gorgeous view of the Swiss Alps the entire way. The view of Mt. Blanc was stunning from the flight path to #Zurich, and we passed over #Montreaux and #Lucerne. I have to admit, that was a nice way to take coffee and croissant!
Off to Rehovot, Israel today for an ATLAS Higgs subgroup workshop (for the subgroup that I co-convene). I'll try to post photos, etc. as I can. It will be a busy few days. Back at #CERN next Friday.
@steve I didn't find anything in my google searching, but let me know if anything crosses your radar. Also, will you be my fitbit friend/competitor?
Yes, @ackey - I will be both your real friend and your fitbit friend. :-)
I sent you an invite to your Stanford account. Let me know if you don't get it.
Sometimes I hate the fact that I’m a security admin for our ShitPoint site. :| Ok, maybe “sometimes” is too broad…
The physics experiment I work on uses sh*tpoint extensively to share data, results, presentations, etc. I've never understood shoving work from a fairly open community like particle physics into a silo like sh*tpoint. I feel for you.
I am working from home today, waiting for Critter Control to come and fix all the holes the squirrels made in our house. We decided to shell out the big bucks and go with their ultimate package (or Permanent Solution as they call it). They will be removing and replacing soiled insulations, spraying and giving a lifetime guarantee against future problems. So long as they stay solvent and stick to their guarantee, this should pay off int the long run. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Very angry at the #GRID today. Very angry, indeed.
Looking forward to the seminar by Luciano Maiani entitled "125 GeV Higgs: what is the message?" Good question . . . let's see how he wants it answered...
