Many of you, my hale and hearty readers, may have noticed something of a decrease in my output of free ice-cream as of late, and arguably a decrease in quality as well.  This is an observation that I would tend to agree with.  My long-time readers, probably less hale and hearty owing to being here longer, probably have some inkling as to why this is occurring.  To whit, Finals week begins on Monday over at Duck U., and that means it's book buyback time at the Duck U Bookstore!

"But Wonderduck," I hear you saying, and I do wish you'd stop that, it's disturbing, "that's next week, not this week, you numbskull."  To which I reply, "Yep.  And there's nothing that needs to be done to lead up to that week, nothing at all."  Sure, it isn't quite as busy at next week, but it's busy enough... and that brings me to what's going to happen with my F1 coverage.

I will be working on Saturday.  We have a registration and orientation day for incoming students, and I'll be manning the Duck U Bookstore cash register from 10am to 5pm.  As one can imagine, my coverage of Quals will probably suffer somewhat.  Allegedly I'll be leaving the store around 3pm on Friday, but that's more a hope than a for-sure.  Practice coverage, never my strong suit even in the best of days, may suffer, depending on when I actually DO leave.  At least race day won't be affected.  I'll admit to hanging on by my wingtips right now... there's so much to do, and my energy levels are somewhat low.

The good news is that I've continued to slog away at the first writeup of Eva Movie 1.11, and it's looking like it'll be quite good.  If you know what I mean.  So there's what's happening.  I'll try to bring you more soft-serve ASAP.

1 I fully understand, having put in a couple of 65 hour workweeks in a row, how work can have a detrimental effect on one's blog output.  (I just need a little help with the new "Posting pictures out of a zip archive" feature.  I e-mailed the help link, but a reply hasn't come yet.)

2 I'm not even doing 65 hour weeks, just 45-50.  But the stress has been ratcheted up a few notches.

Go visit Pixy's place, Mauser... I betcha you'll get a response there!

3 Actually, I remember it being mentioned on SDB's blog, so I did a search over there, and eventually found where it was originally mentioned  - Interestingly enough, it came out in response to my worries about how many individual uploads the final episode of Mysterious Girlfriend X would take.  I never did get around to posting the rest of those.  But now that I have a version of Photoshop for my PC (The infamous free version of CS5) and this trick, now all I need is the free time to finish editing.

MUV-LUV will be a review to remember....

... and a warning.

(Still, the thing should be mentioned in the help pages.)
