I don't normally talk about work on here but I'm making an exception. I'm writing two appeals today. I believe the current backlog of BPAI appeals is 25,000 cases. In 2006, with a 1500 case backlog, it took 2 years for my first appeal to get a panel response. Now I have 3 appeals pending, am in the process of writing 2 more, and it's looking like they won't come back until after I'm retired. It's a bummer because appeals get my best writing and most persuasive rhetoric (I like to picture myself storming up and down the courtroom while dramatically lecturing everyone about the differences between this and that), but nobody has time to fully appreciate them.
Also, this is entertaining:
Also I've been watching DS9. I have a very large text file of how much I hate almost every episode, but I'm reconsidering posting it here. Nerd anger isn't something that's new to the Internet.
