How to Not Blog for a Month
- Agree to present a paper at a
conference ten months in the future, because you are, after all, on the program committee and getting other people to attend.
- Further agree to present new work.
- Completely forget about this, until you get an email from the relevant society a week before the deadline for final manuscripts.
- Spend every fungible moment working on said paper. If you are on eastern time, and the society is on Pacific time, your absolutely final, last-chance deadline is 3am, not midnight.
- Remember that your code will contain at least two irritating numerical bugs.
- Remember that LaTeX style files have only a conjectural relationship to the actual format demanded by the proceedings.
Actually, I'm pretty happy with the resulting paper; it'll be fun to see what kind of reaction it gets.
