Speaking of school crap: last final is tomorrow. It won't be too bad, it's just economics. What should be bad, still: doing the associated homework which has nothing to do with the contents of the final. Yeargh. I've mentioned this in every diary. Not that it isn't of some value for my education. One of the assignments is to read this giant pile of articles and ask three thoughtful questions about each one (you don't even have to answer them). It really is a valuable exercise, both reading the articles and thinking about them. It takes time, though. Time I could spend studying for the final.
Also: is ReadyBoost really capable of offering cheap increases in performance? My old laptop can only take 2GB of RAM and I have that maxed out, but I do some memory intensive stuff sometimes. I know that it apparently helps if you have rather low RAM (like, 512MB), but I'm wondering whether the gains are sufficient at my level to make it worthwhile. The little 2GB thumb drive I have isn't good enough for it and I see some utility in having a larger thumb drive lying around if I need it (and adding to my computer's performance when I don't). Well. Anyway.

Are we on the same page? I'm a fast reader. But very sure of myself.
Anyway, I'm going to a dinner party on Sunday. They were still deciding on the guest list when they asked me if I were free, so I was able to suggest that I could bring along R. They thought it was a great idea, so that is what we are doing. Normally, it wouldn't really be appropriate to make such a suggestion, but it seemed like the list was all still provisional, so I thought it couldn't hurt.
Okay. On the 21st, I have some sort of charity run. That's 8 days. It's like 3.5 miles. I haven't done much of anything in the past two months because I've been terribly busy. So I think I'll do 3 on/1 off twice before it, a couple of those days will be running longer intervals like 5x800 or something, the others will be completely different and not have running, though there might be 200-400m sprints or maybe a mile time trial in there. I don't have time today or tomorrow to do anything more than half an hour and I don't think running will actually help me run this race. I'll let you know how it goes.
