Just popping in to issue a quick apology for the radio silence here at Geek of All Trades. There's quite a bit going on.
I've been juggling a lot of different projects at work, wearing both my patent prosecutor hat and my litigator hat. I'm starting to have a strong opinion about which of those hats fits me better.
Also, my Hindi class has resumed, with a vengeance; it now meets twice a week, and I'm lucky if I can manage to get to half the sessions. I'm taking the class more for the social opportunities it offers than for language learning; the class isn't challenging me at all at this point, but I've made so many excellent friends from it that it just makes me happy to go.
David and I have resumed our efforts to get our house remodeled, and this time it's really going to happen, though we are still in the planning and talking and "dear lord it's really going to cost that much" stage. I will have updates as they occur - once they start tearing our home apart you will definitely hear about it here.
Those of you who care what I have to say about Hindi films as well as the sundry random topics I toss up here will have noticed that things have not been quite as quiet over at Filmi Geek. Keeping things going over there does take some time. There's more, too - I'm also now writing for the South Asian Films section at the relatively new Jaman website. Jaman is several things. It's a source to download high-quality movies from all over the world - not just India, I promise. But perhaps even more importantly, it's a community for people who love to talk about movies, who watch movies and who make them. Jaman is in a growing phase now, and it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun, so please stop by and have a look.
That's all for now. More substance to come in the future.
