It's been quiet around here lately. Put another way, this has been simply the best holiday/vacation I've ever taken. No internet for the last week, no email for large chunks of time, lots of fresh air in the Swiss Alps, and three wonderful companions along for the ride.

Thanks also to Martin Odersky and Burak Emir in Lausanne, where I helped examine Burak's PhD thesis. Well done Burak!

Now back to work on Wednesday :-)
