New Look ‘n Feel

Just got done switching around the website for the 38th time.  I think the feel now is a little more professional.  I am attempting to consolidate this site into a catch-all as a resume site, teaching site, and blog.  Hopefully this plan doesn’t blow up in my face for some reason (angry students spam posting or something).

I added a publications section and got it all updated and current with all the official and un-official publications and major presentations that I have done.  I might need to break it down between “NASA” and “Academic” since the whole jeckell/hyde career path has led to a disjointed listing.

Other than that, just cleaning up and getting ready for the semester.  I hope to do my qual this semester and achieve “ABD” status here in the next couple weeks.  Waiting to hear back on Liz’s grad school status for the fall and get some wedding planning out of the way as well.  Its not busy here… nope, not. at. all.

Mathematical Narcissism

Just found this out a few days ago so I guess I’ll post it because it gives me some sort of CS/Math related chops.  An Erdős number for a math person is the same as the Bacon number for an actor.  I found out today that I have an Erdős number of 3.  Which seems pretty cool?

Nicholas Mattei -> Judy Goldsmith -> Ken Kunen -> Paul Erdős

This is something Math nerds brag about.  I suppose if I am going to get a PhD. I better start bragging about it too.

That and, maybe, do some work.

Website Updated

Spent some time updating the website today.  Got it to post up calendars’ for Liz and I so that, maybe, our parents can stop asking what we are doing all the time.  Decided to go ahead and link the Picassa web albums in with this too since I don’t like to take the time to upload all my pictures to Facebook.

I want to, eventually, get a brief writeup on all my research and hobby projects up on the research wiki.  I think it would go a long way towards keeping everyone up to date with what I am working on.  I am under no delusions that anyone actually reads this site. But, given its complete lack of content I understand why no one does.  Hopefully if I get some content up, like pictures and the projects that I am working on, someone besides my advisor might actually read it.
