sarantium: twenty-something physicist with a book habit. queer, white, disabled. fond of kittens, neutrinos and karen gillan.

look, my \chi^2 is almost reasonable!  (shut up, the last version of this plot had \chi^2 > 9000.)  AND my fractional flux uncertainty is <1%.

ah, the glamour of high energy physics.

I have only been at work for 4.5 hours, and I’m already out of work to do.

I finished rewriting some code, and produced 84 new and exciting plots; I then updated my 33-page “these are my plots; let me show you them” document (now containing 64 plots, only 14 of which are from the new set).  I am now awaiting feedback on my Document of Doom (tm); I need to know if my fits seem OK before proceeding.

I started 10000 jobs running, but there’s something going wonky and I don’t know what it is, so I have emailed a senior grad student — but he’s in EST, works 9-5, and it’s 4:30 PM on a Friday for him, so I’m not optimistic I’ll hear from him today.

Otoh, there will be wine and cheese in half an hour.  Both the wine and the cheese are pretty dreadful, but they’re free.  And probably I should listen to some guy from RENO talk about their measurements of \theta_{13}.
