Message 611710 - Posted: 30 Jul 2007, 19:13:49 UTC

I'm in a guest office at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, just south of Penticton BC. I grew up in Penticton, from age 6-18, so it's like being home. I've visited the UBCO campus a few times but I needed to come down here to use a linux machine so I can work on some important GALFA stuff. The Okanagan is hotter than the Bay Area; it's just great. Of course come September I'm sure I'll be longing for the Berkeley sunshine.

Thanks for the Update Kevin - Good to hear you're startin' to settle in

The Canadian Winters (as you 'probably' know) are a lot drier and NOT so to the bone . . . you'll get used to it again and find that you most likely will like it . . .

It's good that you can do your work there - that's what really counts eh . . .

Stay Well Sir - keep care too

Unfortunately, the coasts get very WET winters, not dry. :)

BC is notorious for that.
