OT: Friday Open Posbang (?) Thread: Whatcha Working On?

Submitted by profitgoblue on April 27th, 2012 at 3:31 PM

In case you've already read Brian's comprehensive front pager about receivers individual stats in recent years and are looking for some good, clean fun, here's an off-topic question for those "hard" at work this warm, sunny Friday afternoon:

Watcha working on there in the office (or wherever you are)?

Me, I'm sitting on what is possibly boringest** of boring conference calls about the policies and procedures of escheating unclaimed funds to the state.

(I should be honest:  I'm actually reading the blog and watching Battlefield 3 videos on YouTube as the speaker drones on in the background.)

(**new word)

Refreshing the site waiting for a pos-bang thread. Oh wait.

Waiting on the contract that makes my quarter while realizing it's not going to happen today. What should I drink this evening?

Good news - they loved it.
Bad news - it means a week in Milwaukee.
Worse news- figuring out how to break it to the wife. Fifth trip in 2 months for a non-traveling job.

At this particular moment, I am looking at a specific piece of data for a national magazine that ranks universities.  We don't collect that data in the way they assume we do, so I'm trying to impute a figure that is accurate, realiable, defensible, etc.

But I also see it's 5:45 on Friday and I think I shoulda been out of here some time ago.  Not looking forward to traffic on the way home.  It's commencement weekend which means the city is filled with happy families who unfortunately don't know their way around Ann Arbor that well.

Nailed another significant result yesterday in support of my working hypothesis, tested out some more primers tonight for quantitative polymerase chain reaction experiments ... gotta get that PhD.  Done for the night, having a drink for the first time all week (yes that's a long time to go without a brew here in WI).

Has anyone else on mgoblog participated in the MAC program at Michigan. I am in my last month of the program, starting to write my e-portfolio.

Home prices are really low there, but vice is always going to be in LV, and the town hasn't stopped growing. Cap return is 7% to 9.5% less some minor fees, IRR is 28%, so it's not uninteresting.
