My athena account went away last night. Well, as much as athena accounts do nowadays, which is to say that my locker and email address are gone. And I can't ssh into the dialups anymore. But other machines still let me in, and I can still get my kerberos tickets, so it's not so bad.
Someone probably would have sponsored me, but I decided to let it go. Really, I've only used my account for three things recently: zephyr, email, and logging in when I visit campus. Zephyr still works fine, email should (philosophically) not be going to firstname.lastname@example.org anymore anyway (since I'm not "at MIT" anymore), and I can use my cell phone if I really need web access on campus. So I'll survive.
I did one last inc last night for old time's sake. It brought me up to 123,316 total emails since I got to MIT. That's a lot of email, even if most of it is spam (which it is). It's kind of scary to look back and see the proportion of spam grow over the past 5+ years.
In other news, my 6.001 Underground Guide review was posted a while back. They gave me a 5.9/7.0, which is pretty good as TA ratings go. (But apparently my "blackboard technique and clarity could use a little work.") Several of the other 6.001 TAs managed 6.0s, but I got twice as many reviews as most of them, so my 5.9 is more statistically significant. So there.
In other other news, my thesis is now the most-cited reference on JCilk, with three whole citations. One of them's even hosted on a server not at MIT. It's just a matter of time before everyone's using JCilk, and they'll all have to cite me, because I wrote about it first. Muahahahaha. Cough.
