Greetings from Alameda:
Its still warm and dry around SF. We are looking and hoping for rain. Politics this November were much more interesting and exciting than most years. We had about twenty propositions to vote for, most of which lost. It looked like the voters were paying attention and only voting for really deserving issues. We did issue a "throw the rascals out" type of term limitation mandate (which the legislature will try to invalidate in court).
I have been spending most of my free time on learning C on the IBM clone.
