To Boston!

Tomorrow I will observe New Year's Day by hopping into the Jasonmobile and driving to my New Jersey office. Which is to say, I will be visiting my parents. Then on Tuesday I shall hop on a train and sally forth to Boston, which is hosting the annual math extravaganza knows as the Joint Mathematics Meetings. Lots of math, lots of socializing, what's not to like? I won't be arriving back in Harrisonburg until Sunday the eigth. Alas, on Monday it's right back into the classroom for the spring semester.

Which is to say, I won't be posting anything for a little while. Now, now, let's have none of that. Show a little dignity.

The spam filters around here sometimes get a little touchy, and a lot of worthy comments end up in my spam folder. During my brief blog break, of course, I will not be checking in very often to clear out the ones that should have gone through in the first place. Sorry about that. If you keep your comments short and without links you should be OK.

So best wishes for 2012! See you in a little bit...

Time to get back to the classroom! Our spring semester starts tomorrow. This term I'll be teaching Calculus I and History of Math. I have a relatively light teaching load this term, as my reward for accepting a relatively heavy teaching load last term. Things are going to be a bit hectic for me…
