Metapost: Is There Another Word For "Update"?

So, hey, I got some reasonably good news today that unfortunately is going to drive another schedule change, for which I apologize. (It seems like for all my aversion to change, I keep changing things, and I'm sorry.)

So the good news is that the full-time job with Best Friend that I wasn't going to be able to take because I can't get in to work full-time has been reclassified -- at least for now -- as a part-time job. (Because Best Friend is awesome and went to bat for me.) And since I really, really like working with Best Friend this is kind of a dream come true (in the sense of Yay, Awesome Co-worker), at least for however long it lasts (but it should be at least a couple more months of employment, and we're trying to get it extended longer) . . .

. . . except that it's at a facility that has no external internet access and where the 3G on my phone doesn't reliably work. So that part is not terribly dreamy. And the other downside is that the work is completely new to me in a technical area that I haven't dealt with before and in order for me to get up to speed to what is a completely different job than I had before (including a new job title), I have to take a boat-load of training in my free time in order to catch up on the subject matter. And that has to start basically right now, as soon as I hit "post" on this.

So. In order to make this work, I'm going to have to change the posting schedule around a little so that instead of a M/W/F deconstruction schedule, we have a T/Th deconstruction schedule:

Monday: Open Thread
Tuesday: Narnia / Other Deconstruction
Wednesday: Open Thread
Thursday: Twilight / Other Deconstruction
Friday: Open Thread

I think I can swing this; Kristycat is doing an amazing job with the Open Threads (thank you, Kristycat!) and where I was writing decons on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, now I'll be in training on Tuesdays and Thursdays and will be writing decons on Saturdays and Sundays. I think I can manage that.

The other aspect to this is that I won't be able to moderate comments as they come in on the days when I'm away from the internet for 8 hours in a row. So I need everyone to be extra-super-nice and respectful to the other moderators, all of whom are also very busy with their own lives. And we may be bringing on more moderators as the need arises, since I won't be pulling my weight as much as before.

I think that's pretty much everything that I needed to report, and I have to get some reading done on my training materials tonight before bed, so I'll go ahead and post this. I want to thank you all again for being so very easy-going about all my zany employment shenanigans and blog changes in response to everything being so up-and-down. Thank you.

The lifetime of solar panels depends on the material or type of panel you are using, how well they are maintained, and the type of weather in your area.
There are many people and even companies that really don't know much about them and because of that scholarship money is not being fully utilized to impart necessary training and certifications. Here's a short list of approaches to remaining focused and staying far removed from

The growth of bacteria is inhibited at these high levels of
sugar. The next available OTC was butaconazole, or Femstat.
More than likely, the garlic inserted into the vagina will provide instant relief for any symptoms that are present.

This paste will be applied directly to the skin tag 3 times a day until the
skin tag falls off. Touching your chin frequently will transfer these germs and dirt to the chin area
which may result in acne on chin. Chocolate and junk foods are often blamed for the cause of acne.
