I went to the CRRS pub night for the first time, and had one of those sadly rare conversations with peers which was highly academic, full of Ideas and Thoughts and Interesting, Useful information. Afterwards, unexpectedly, I ran into Patrick over a fast food dinner, and we spent time catching up - that was good. I haven't seen him in ages since I don't have class with him anymore.
During the late evening reception after John North's talk, I met lots of people, and talked to many more I already knew. Here is the best excerpt from last evening's conversations:
R. "It is not known..." (pauses thoughtfully)
G. (turning to me) "What did he say?"
Me "It is not known."
Me "We don't know!"
