I should

have been editing a paper tonight. But instead, I fucked around with my blog template. I still need to get the colors right.

I cannot even pretend it is work, unlike fooling around with my syllabus, or class web site, or vita, or organizing my files.

But it was fun. I am starting to understand bit of css. For me, probably a useless skill.

This kind of stuff is why sometimes the helpful colleagues—those who can help you the most with your computer and software problems—end up having fewer publications. (Sometimes they have more publications, though, too.)

  1. I found your site at random, but I just wanted to say I know what you mean about how you can get caught up with this blog world, instead of doing real work.

  2. Alas, all too true. I’ve made a strict limitation on my blogging unless I’m waiting for a long SAS program to execute. Luckily, since I’m working with pretty large data sets (n> 1,000,000) at the moment, it’s not much of a restriction.

    Great idea posting your academic stats on the sidebar.
