Weekend SWEET, SWEET FREEDOM
On Wednesdays, you give a lecture in Polish?
Sorry, I can never resist that particular heteronym.
You are ripping right along in that course. You do E and then B and only later get around to circuits?
What class is the laser spectroscopy lab for? That is a really nice touch for a modern or QM class. What does the equipment cost for that?
Say, when do you do your blog posts? That nice one on quantum computing surely took up more than just the "email crises" time. I assume it's during your downtime at Chateau Steelypips. Once Futurebaby pops out, I expect that the frequency of such posts will (understandably) diminish. I just want to say thanks for that fine post and other physics posts; I've learned a great deal.
