We went to Bob & Pyro's on the 4th. Monkey even got in the pool and managed to not get sunburned! At sundown we did the usual fireworks watching thing over in Broomfield. It was good other than the sprinklers coming on just before the show started and right during the finale.
Tuesday evening we met Amber & her hubby at Dae Gee for a farewell dinner. (They're taking advantage of Denver's housing market to sell their house and use the proceeds to buy a bigger place in a small town in Michigan and pay off a bunch of debts.)
Work was good. I saw a talk on Wednesday about unit testing in R, and now I'm kinda psyched to add unit tests to my bias correction package. The talk itself was no great shakes, but afterwards there was some discussion about what areas are and are not worth building unit tests around, and that was very informative.
Current events are stupid and terrible, and it makes me mad how many problems are not a matter of not knowing what to do or how to do it, but problems that persist because people don't want to fix them because they're too attached to shitty ideas.
