Still mired in the depths of not one but two catastrophic hard-drive failures. But still here punching. Our guys kicked ass (both formally and informally) at the regional meetings of the musicology society, and even maintained their demeanor during 12 or 13 hours in a 12-seater van. As I said to Dharmonia today, "you know, if I hadn't had those those two HDD crashes, this would be a great semester": classes are going well, bunch of students graduating, scholarship was going along well. But still trying to hang tough.
