    The Spring semester has officially begun (as of Monday actually). Welcome back to everyone, here’s to a productive semester.

    It has been pointed out that this site has had a dearth of updates, so any news or info that might be useful to people should be sent to me and I’ll post them as they come. Additionally, the student list is in need of updating. Given university changes I’m considering just sending the student list to redirect to the department page (which is also a bit funky), but would like to hear what people think.

    You can comment on posts now, by the way. The link is in the upper left corner of the post (which typically says “No Comments”). You’ll need to register and log in to comment, this is annoying but necessary to prevent the bot-hordes of the interwebs from invading.
