I am more and more pleased with my database. Part of this is simply acquiring greater familiarity with how Filemaker functions and what it can do, especially playing with portals, scripts, and buttons. My notecard database is now ever so much more useful, since my bibliographic database now automatically finds the notecards which are related to the bibliographic source one is looking at. Yes, I know, this doesn't count as real work, but it's still satifsying, and the goal is to make real work easier to accomplish.

Other positive and related notes: I was very happy to receive an emailed reminder from Steve, a past graduate of my current program, encouraging me to submit a paper for Avista's K'zoo session. I'm still intending to do it, and must work on it very very soon. I need to decide exactly what I would like to do the paper on. Also, in response to the party invite, I received a lovely list of possibly useful sources from Jess, the PhD student with whom I currently have the most research interests in common. Very kind of him.
