I wanted to let everyone know that I'll be taking a summer break - as of yesterday, I've cleared myself and my family out of the house and off for some R&R. I'll be lounging around all next week, and will return to blogdom (and research-dom) on Monday the 16th. I've already told folks in the lab not to discover anything gigantic while I'm gone (it looks bad, y'know).
