Saturday morning. 6.20 am. Heading home. \(And really hoping to remember which home to head to\.\)

Sat Jun 01 11:25:21 +0000 2013

Aaargh left my laptop power cord in the hotel. Happily I have an extra at home for exactly this reason, but aaargh nonetheless.

Sat Jun 01 12:46:40 +0000 2013

And I said to myself, as I packed up the laptop, “don’t forget your power cord!”

Best part so far: the painting is done, so furniture can be put in the proper rooms, and unpacking can commence!

Least great part so far: it’s freaking hot, and I have not yet had the chance to get air conditioners.

My naming system started when I got a 2nd monitor at work & named the computer “starbase.” My home desktop became “homebase.”+

My laptop became “voyager.” And so when I got my iPhone it was “rover.”

Evidence is all anecdotal, as pubs don’t much share sales info. Also, hard to know what sales would have been otherwise. +

Replying to @veek

That said, sales of PO were a good bit higher than I think NYUP expected, and I’ve heard the same from other authors/presses.

I haven’t heard that about books. I have heard claims that going OA with journal articles has resulted in declining subscriptions.

Hello, London! You're very shiny and warm today.

My room is on the back side of the hotel \(& so is quiet\!\), but the view by the elevators on my floor looks like this.
