our loss

My wild Aussie colleague Andy had his last day today. It was a bit strange for him to end in mid-week while our term is in full swing, but this apparently has to do with the dates on Andy's contract. Our terms don't start start on exactly the same calendar dates every year, whereas the contract is strictly reckoned according to date.

Andy was a good coworker and a fine teacher. He had many loyal students who often popped by our office just to say hi (few of my students do that... go figure), as well as three or four hardcore groupies.

It was a hoot to work with him over the past two years, and I wish him well as he looks to travel around a bit and seek greener pastures in Korea or elsewhere.

Happy trails, man.
