over Christmas and only got around to trying to rescue them last night. Predictably, a mouse or some other creature got into them and also tore up a bag of kleenexes and a couple other things we had in there. cool beans.

Yes, this IS the gzt show.

While getting a new (Samsung) tablet, I went ahead and sprung for a crummy laptop at a decent price - for basic web browsing, document production, portable access to things, etc. Comes with Windows 10 - I'm going to try to put Linux on and dual-boot, but I'm trying to remember rumors about how Windows 10 and new boot thingies made that tricky or something, or at least that there's a wrinkle or something that you have to make sure to get right.

I figured that, now that I'm back home, I'd take maybe .5-1hr per day to learn a little python because it's handy. Today's task: install the stuff I need to go through the Jake VanderPlas book on python for data science. I think I've successfully done so. I won't verify until tomorrow, though, when I actually give it a whirl: I've gone through my allotment of time!
