Remember that picture of Eric wearing a suit that I posted here? Eric was on his way to a NASA site review for a satellite project he is a part of. (Not a seti thing... sorry friends.) Anyway, it got funded. Yay!!!

Congrats on the funding and good luck.

Unfortunately, being stereo-typed in a suit is too often the important part for sweetening dumb uncaring accountants... Especially when facing those who haven't a clue about what the science is!


Buy another suit to gain some further grants? ;-)

Keep searchin',

Congratations on that, and Congratations on getting your computer fixed too.

Congrats to Eric on securing the funding....I am sure it is much harder to come by in this day and age.

And it would appear your computer is doing better these days as well. Good news there too!

Yes, well done Eric :-) He isn't really a suit man, but simply does what has to be done, and let's face it when you're pitching for money, first impressions count.

Congrats Eric on the funding. And I for one hate wearing a suite and tie. The suite is ok, But I swear its a conspiracy to make shirts to damn tight around the neck. And then you have to hang yourself with a tie. BaH

After they "measure" your neck size, buy a size or two bigger.
