Tried to update various pages to reflect the more recent (graduate) state of my life. Actually updated my life story for the first time in 3 years!

May 30, 2003

Officially signed, filed, and everything. At the last filing step, a woman behind the counter at the registrar's office emerged with a form in her hand, looked up, and asked of those waiting: "Dr. Elson?". It was very funny; I looked around for my dad.

My advisor saw the old picture of me on my home page and said, aghast, "Who is that?". I finally replaced the picture with a black-and-white one that's supposed to appear at the end of a journal article on which I am a co-author. (Which, in turn, was based on one of the pictures that Mohan took at the grand opening of CENS in October.)

Gave up on ever having time to convert my presentations to HTML, like in the old days, so wimped out and just dumped all the powerpoint into a directory. Updated writings with more recent papers. Updated contact info with more recent travel.

And, you know your pictures are outdated when your mom starts to ask when you're going to update the album on your web page. At least this is now theoretically easier since Dana has a digital camera.

Updated my writings with some recent papers (still way behind on putting up lots of presentations); updated my contact info.

August 1, 2002
OK, not many changes lately, but I've been too busy doing things to have time to write about them. :-) But, some updates to my travel schedule and software. In particular, I released FUSD in the last year. After I get back from New York I will try to find time to put up the huge pile of papers, presentations, and other software that has been accumulating. (In the mean time, check out the publications page at the lab for some of my more recent stuff.)
