Past 48 hours

Not quite yet in the habit of daily posts.

Spent part of Wed. evening conferring with York undergrad Ted Rudyk about a nascent project to look for historical variability of "overlapping-trough" FeLoBALs like FBQS J1408+3054 seen in the previous post's animated gifs.

Thursday and Friday up till now spent in extremely productive conversations with colloquium visitor Daniel Proga (UNLV), who does numerical simulations of disk winds. Started my review of the literature on disk winds and quasars in general with his papers. The goal is to refresh my picture of how quasars work; to aid in this I am investigating the Papers software as well as other ways of disseminating research thoughts (like this blog).
