I remember when a three day weekend was a sacred thing. A not to be missed chance to go on an adventure. This year, as I'm frantically getting ready to graduate my President's day three day weekend was a little less glorious.
It featured many hours of mad scientist fume hood scribbling (most of this is Roger's actually).
as you can see, I'll be lucky if two or three of those sixteen meet the criteria of correct composition, >95% dense, pure single phase and crack free necessary for thermoelectric measurements in my final experiments.
Here's to graduating in a few months!
