A buddy of mine informed me about this organization here in town: The Astronomy Associates of Lawrence (they also have a Facebook page).

This Wednesday, May 26, they'll have open telescope observing in South Park immediately following the Lawrence City Band concert, starting at approximately 9:30 PM. It's free and open to the public! The next times are June 9, June 23, and July 7 - perhaps one of those won't be filled with thunderstorms. Phooey.

In other news: For the first time in weeks, I have the internets at home! When high school (just down the block) ended, FreeNet killed their free internet (ironic much?), so I signed up with DSL. The new connection is about 50x better than FreeNet ever was for only about $15 more per month. I win.

Finally: I apologize for my terrible LJing and Facebooking, and hope to do much better this summer - and next fall, when I most assuredly won't be teaching 8 classes.

Finally: ConQuest is this weekend in Kansas City! I'll be there doing lots of panels and stuff. Hope to see you there!

Chris

At ConQuest, I assume you mean ;-)

See you there! I look forward to seeing your new stuff.

Whose DSL did you kneel to?

I done chose AT&T, because it's the cheapest (if you get the special) and has no bandwidth limits. Wow-fast, too! I'd say it's a few times faster than a KU connection.

Ah-yup. We haz ATT as well. And as much as I hate giving them my monies, we do have good service with no problems.

Just keep an eye on the bills. They do make mistakes.
