Just a quickie to let you all know what I've been up to lately (other than ranting about immigration):

Work is still keeping me very, very busy. It's not uncommon for me to work every day (including weekends). In addition to a huge workload, we're short-handed because one of my coworkers is recovering from shoulder surgery.

My dance teacher (Gail) recently called me to ask if I wanted to do a samba routine for either the next medal ball or showcase. I haven't replied, but chances are I won't be able to. I just have too much work to do. I can't even make it to chorus rehearsals regularly; I've been going to every other rehearsal. This isn't likely to change until I get really, really solid on my assignments and the parts of our infrastructure that they touch. I want to be at the point I was at while at AV where I could predict things that might go wrong and have fixes for them before they do go wrong.

I don't think I've touched my digital piano in a couple of months. When I do use it, it's just routine practice – scales, arpeggios, etc. I haven't even tried to learn a new piece (or even work on an old one) lately.

I'll be up in SF for IETF74 for most of this week. The last time I went to an IETF conference was about 20 years ago, when it was held at Stanford.
