Just a couple to things from my trip
We don't have these in Houston.
It makes me sad.
This is one of the oldest buildings on the University of North Carolina @ Chapel Hill.
The corner stone was laid in 1793 and was the first building on campus. Old East as it is called is still used as a residence hall.
The reading room at their rare books library. Isn't it cool?
Their digital lab needed a piece of equipment that would play and digitize wax cylinders. So they had one built. I don't have access to any wax cylinders but I want one of these anyway. In fact, I want a whole bunch of their equipment. I had a serious case of digital lab envy.
We went to a Durham Bulls game. They won, 12 to 6. It was fun though it has been so long since I've had ice cream that I sort of made myself sick. They didn't call it ice cream. They called it frozen custard. Tasted like ice cream to me.
And, the picture you've been waiting for...
Me with a Smurf.
Jim (an archivist from Rhode Island) looks like he being goosed by the Smurf. It was kind of scary.
