I started work on the redbook today. I'm working in the ITSO office in building 905. Everyone here is complaining about the weather. It's not that bad. Heck, it's above freezing. What are they expecting? It's winter, for the love of tomatoes. Here's the view outside my office window. My desk. The U.S. and Swedish flags represent the home countries of my co-author and me. But they could just as well represent my two homes. In the background, on the top of the cabinet, are dozens of other national and state flags. These are used to show the nations of origin of the guest residents working on projects at the ITSO.
