My Day

In the tradition of my dad’s My Day posts, here’s what I did this morning:

After lunch, I accompanied a graduate student friend on a hardware store sortie to procure parts for a book scanner. We are going to build one! His research involves coding a bunch of records that exist only in printed form. It has been determined that scanning those books and bound volumes will be the most efficient way to proceed, so there is even funding for this DIY endeavor. I expect the scanner will get a lot of use beyond the scope of that project, so it will certainly be a worthy investment.

I rode to and from work in the rain on my Schwinn.

A rich post and a rich day. Keep us posted on the scanner project. Will we be able to rent time on it?

I expect the book scanner will be a common pool resource when not otherwise in use. We are hoping to come avail ourselves of some tools and facilities at anoved HQ this Saturday, actually.
