Spent the weekend in the rain. Professor Staley has a "fireside chat" each year - he lives about an hour outside of Pittsburgh in a lovely home in the "mountains". He invites majors out, feeds them lots of great waffles, and then coerces them into a long hike in his "backyard". With the intense rain... we just ended up stuffed and lazy in front of the fire.

Otherwise, a lazy weekend. GameCube is a pretty platform.

Out of the blue, Seth offered me a summer job this morning. When class was supposed to start but we were the only ones there. Compiler writing... which is odd for so many reasons. I suspect it was chronic exposure to smart folks like trurl. Its somewhat nano related, and I'd suspect this role would change quickly (especially when he remembers I have a chem degree). And when I reminded him I was graduating, he realized he couldn't just hire me as a student. "Yeah, I wouldn't have a problem hiring you as an employee". WTF?

So this was presumed to be available, but its odd to have it out there. He wanted to know when I would know, so ... I said three weeks, which is about when I'll hear from NYCTF, and as I return from San Diego. Shit will be hitting the fan anyway.

Any and all advice welcome. Kind of compelling is the prospect of just a summer thing with the potential to grow. Cause I do have an apartment in PGH until July 30 regardless of what, where, and when I choose to do.

I'd love stories (probably best over email though) if you have them, time, and such an inclination. I'm presently in my third class with him and he seems a known OK... though a bit rough on his TAs.
