The Design Patterns paper is done - 18 pages, 1.25-spaced. If anybody's interested in seeing an introduction to design pattern methodology written for second-year+ CompSci undergraduates, e-mail me at my LJ address, and I'll be sure you get a copy in the next couple of days. Please specify DVI, PS, PDF, and/or LaTeX source.
In other news, the burning of CD's has been progressing at a steady clip. They should be ready in the first week of January.

Broke down, smoking again, at least for today. Not tomorrow, though.
