I'm still working on my thesis. I can't believe how long it is taking to write. I'd probably be done by now if it wasn't for slashdot!!! I'm still reading journal articles trying to get as much background covered as I can. In the process of looking up every article ever written about soil carbon and reflectance, I've found several articles from the Soviet Soil Science journal. They were studying carbon and reflectance clear back in the 60's. I can't believe how much research has been repeated because governments dislike studies that aren't 'home-grown'.

In other news, we (Nikkala and I) are expecting our first baby in January. I'm really excited. Of course I think it will be a boy, but we don't know for sure yet. I guess I have a 50-50 chance of being right. I need to hurry and finish this thesis and get a real job before then. We need to move into a larger house as well. The second bedroom is filled with all of my books, computers, and other stuff. Nikkala doesn't think I need my G4 cube, Silicon Graphics Indigo, and Dual G5 desktop all running together and wants to convert the room into a baby room. So I think a new place will save a lot of arguing.
