    •  I'm here in spirit! (3+ / 0-)

      Aside from being super-busy, all is well. My hiatus from DKE is mainly a time-management thing. I would much rather be drawing and analyzing maps then working on DRA data, but I realize that if I don't do it, no one else will.

      I don't post on DKE anymore because what little 'free' time I have I put into DRA. I sure didn't imagine it would become such an epic task back when all I wanted to do was get an Illinois data set last March!

      Anyway, I post semi-regularly on RRH, generally when taking a break from DRA work, because I find it a bit easier to jump in with a comment than I do on DKE. When I check in on DKE the main threads are usually so long there's just not much point in my commenting, and I don't read diaries anymore either here or at RRH (well, I never read them to begin with over there).

      In short, that's the tradeoff for the hours upon hours I put into DRA work while at the same time working on a rather complex thesis (which has required a good bit of research travel) as well as the textbook I'm co-authoring.
