This issue brings you some new technology. Where? It's all
behind the scenes. It's the first issue that is being uploaded and assembled using the web instead of FTP! We can all write articles from our browsers now. Let's hope this means more contributors in the future.
Heidi and David are making a big move. But they have
decided not to move out of their apartment - they're
moving stuff around in their apartment!
With the baby coming soon, they needed to be able to
separate their place into living and working areas.
"The office is taking up the whole apartment," was
Heidi's sentiment. "I need to be able to close the
door when I work," said David. At first, they thought
they needed more space.
But this weekend, the answer suddenly became clear:
why not switch the bedroom and the office? So when
Kevin arrived in town for the 4th of July, the weekend
project became the disassembly (and reassembly) of the home office. Three computers, eight hundred pounds of books, and a tangle of wires later, the move is nearly done, and David is set up in his new office - with a door! Kevin's help
made quick work of the big project.
"I like it a lot better this way," says Heidi. "Me too," agrees David.
Heidi Starts Second Year
It's back to vascular surgery for Heidi. But now, instead
of being at the very bottom of the hierarchy, she's second to the bottom - a second-year resident!
This means she'll be getting to spend some time in the operating room. In just a few days of her rotation, she's already performed several operations.
But she's still the junior member of the team. "They don't let me do anything for real," she says, "it's all toes and feet." While the senior vascular surgeons are implanting vessels to improve circulation, Heidi gets to do the less glamorous work of amputating any toes that have died due to lack of blood.
Out Of Time, Kevin Finds More
The work was piling up on Kevin in almost incomprehensible amounts. He was beginning to panic. Time was running out.
Then, in an almost unbelievable turn of events, Kevin actually found some more time underneath his desk! This concept is, unfortunately, too difficult to explain in this small space. Look for a more detailed discussion in a later issue.
Mom Fooling with the Editor
I just edited your front page left column. After I finished writing and view the page, I realized a better place to put my page is on the right side pink column. Oh well! I'll do better next time. Did you see the pictures of One Franklin Tower?
Heidi and David Toss 200lbs
Bookcases are way too heavy to move with books on them. So the books have to be moved seperately.
But while moving our books it became obvious that such classics as Inside OLE, first edition and 43 issues of unread Journal of Surgical Research were far too special to store in an ordinary way. Why not pull out the stops and archive them in the trash bin?
The 25 story building was reported to have been seen rising slightly from its foundation when the weight of the junk was removed.
Several days and three hundred dollars later, our trusty
old Acura is no longer making that funny sound. "The left
rear caliper needed to be replaced," explained John the mechanic.
