I almost forgot to do my regular Monday blog. Starting this Saturday I'll be away from Berkeley for about 3.5 weeks, so this blog might go on hiatus until August 13 unless I get enough time to a computer while I'm gone. Eric and Dan are in Puerto Rico this week for the Bioastronomy conference, so I'm mostly trying to shore up some loose ends with SETHI and starting up a paper on the GALFA data reduction pipeline with some colleagues down the hill.

I thought about writing a list of the things I will and won't miss about working in Berkeley. While far from complete, the things I am sure of are as follows (in no specific order):

What I will miss about my time in Berkeley
The weather
The view from SSL
My co-workers
The great restaurants discovered at SETI lunches
The eclectic music and video stores

What I won't miss about my time in Berkeley
The filthy, ugly downtown Berkeley area
Poor coverage of hockey
Election '08 hype
Fog
