Two days

Tuesday: sort papers & write notes on some. Chat w/Brad Peterson. Spectral measurements on new HET spectra for PHL 1811 analog paper.

Wednesday: sort papers & write notes on some. Final revised FBQS J1408+3054 paper off to MNRAS and arXiv. Skype w/Laura - turns out the erroneous analytic solution for inhomogeneous covering hasn't affected any published results, as the integral in question has been evaluated numerically. Skype w/Jesse - turns out the problem of accounting for EW measurement upper limits and uncertainties is "ridiculously simple, like most riddles when you see the answer", to quote Gandalf.
