I should

have been editing a paper tonight. But instead, I fucked around with my blog template. I still need to get the colors right.

I cannot even pretend it is work, unlike fooling around with my syllabus, or class web site, or vita, or organizing my files.

But it was fun. I am starting to understand bit of css. For me, probably a useless skill.

This kind of stuff is why sometimes the helpful colleagues---those who can help you the most with your computer and software problems---end up having fewer publications. (Sometimes they have more publications, though, too.)

I found your site at random, but I just wanted to say I know what you mean about how you can get caught up with this blog world, instead of doing real work.

Alas, all too true. I've made a strict limitation on my blogging unless I'm waiting for a long SAS program to execute. Luckily, since I'm working with pretty large data sets (n> 1,000,000) at the moment, it's not much of a restriction.

Great idea posting your academic stats on the sidebar.
