This is when I tried to figure out the flow chart of journal names and dates (splits, mergers, renames, dates, call numbers, etc) that emerged from the Journal of the Chemical Society. (1861-1965) This is not near as good as that French journal cheat sheet, but maybe I will try this in my spare time.

The kid picked a college. Plan is to major in music business while also taking math classes to either double major or minor. He wanted to stay in state since he loves Colorado.

ER. Kid sliced finger helping me cook dinner. Damned can of sloppy Joe sauce. Grandparents in town, so now he can't play instrument for Colorado all state HS band. Shitty luck. All my fault for having him use the evil old can opener. Just bummed out.

Well, my sister-in-law just finished her brain surgery. Looks like a type 2 or type 3 tumor. (Walnut sized.) They are sending it to the Mayo Clinic for testing. That may take a week or so for results to come back if it is benign or malignant. She is still not awake as far as I know. My wife travelled back to IL yesterday in time for the surgery, and she will stay till Saturday night, but her sister will still be in the Hospital probably till Monday or Tuesday. Thoughts and prayers appreciated, but not medically necessary.

I hope that all goes well with her recovery. ‎· John B.

Update. The kid has applied to three colleges in Colorado, has been accepted to one of them (which is a fallback school academically, but I think he would enjoy going there and learn lots of stuff.) One of the three, we are waiting on two recommendation letters from teachers, so he has not 100% finished with the application, but he has done his part.

Saw that the Kronk had a locked down article (that I didn't/couldn't read) about how libraries are not saving money by going to more electronic resources. Are faculty still surprised by this? http://www.chronicle.com/article/As-Libraries-Go-Digital-Cost...
Comment
Or, is it saying something slightly different? The lead I saw seem to indicate that was the direction the article headed. ‎· Joe
Comment
Faculty are DEFINITELY still surprised by this, just like ebook aficionados who just caaaaaaaan't understand why ebooks cost so much. (FIRST-COPY COSTS: STILL A THING.) ‎· LibSkrat
