Once again, I devoted a large portion of my time today to learning IDL. I have reached the point in my study of this language that I can write a simple program. It is a small program, that accomplishes little, but the important thing I my increase in understanding of IDL. Today I was presented a number of possible projects for this summer, my final decision must be made by Monday. All four choices sounded very interesting and sound like they would push me to my limit of understanding, unless that was the effect of the pedantic language used by the Astronomers. I will have to put a lot of thought into this final decision, something to do after reading chapter 1 of Jake's thesis paper on AGN.
