How to get to Caltech

Steinn's story of his arrival at Caltech is pretty entertaining. All you Techers should go read it.

Not only is the story amusing, the strikeouts in his profile blurb had me laughing out loud.

And as a nice side benefit, the comments revealed that JvP is ok, despite his long absence from Making Light. (and whatever crappy spellchecker came with the newest firefox thinks ok, spellchecker, and firefox are mispelled.)

Well, "Firefox" is a proper noun, "OK" is typically capitalized and "spell checker" has a space. :P

But, asinine nit-picking aside, I agree -- the dictionary is somewhat lacking. (Honestly, I only even took the shot since you're normally on top of that and you left yourself WIDE open.)

And, of course, there was a comment from Mr. UberNerd himelf (who I still suspect padded his resume)...

It's too bad he used the term "hack," but we can't have everything.

Bah, I had tagged my post above with html-style "hypocrisy" tags (appropriately, as i r teh phonix xpurt), but as usual the preview button kills the properly escaped sequences. Bah.

So... any update on a post re the Science paper?

On an unrelated note, I'm relatively new to this blog and I think it's pretty cool. Just wanted to say hi.

Hiya Siddhartha (is that the correct name to use?) and welcome to the blog. :)

Siddhartha: Welcome! Glad you're enjoying the blog. The post on the Science paper is way overdue; my current thinking is that I'll post the '80s music thread around Monday, and hope that that thread is active for several days while I work on the qubits post.
