My first weekend back has been exactly what I expected, I watched The Two Towers Friday night and spent all day Saturday and Sunday reading. I figured out lambda-calculus, and refreshed my self on Scheme programming, and I got through the first 2 chapters of the Databases book… very dry stuff. I never had time to go over the numerical methods stuff, so I’m still behind. If this is any indication…. volunteer work may not be possible, I won’t be able to read all those nice books that I wanted to get, or do any OSS programming.

Why do they do this to us?
