My summer vacation

One of the drawbacks of not having a job is that you never get a vacation. Thus the only way I could get away this summer was to take an unpaid leave from blogging. Now I’m back, though—once again ungainfully unemployed. I want to thank all my faithful readers for their forbearance during my absence. I know you missed me, and it was very kind of you—brave, even—to refrain from nagging.

    We knew it would do no good. Welcome back. Your blogs are worth ten times what you’re being paid to write them.

    Brian you don’t write for American Scientist anymore?

    Elio: Sorry if my glib remarks about “unemployment” caused confusion. I *do* still write the “Computing Science” column for American Scientist, and doing so keeps me pretty busy. But it’s not a job in the usual sense of that word: I don’t have to get up in the morning and go to the office.
