More Bits and Pieces

  1. At an impasse with a student about a letter of recommendation. I want to mail it directly to the place where the student is applying. Student wants me to email it to her so she can send everything together. I'm willing to give her a sealed envelope with a signature across the seal (and to include in the letter that this is how it was delivered to the student).

  2. Spent way too long working on a one-off combinatorial problem.

  3. Spent not enough time thinking about fields of characteristic two.

  4. Gossiped about someone who appears to be acting very ungrateful and selfish.

  5. Continuing to work with my database. Returned all the database books to the library.
