GOA5 Progress

The data gathering is done. Normalization is done. I’m off to a good start on the main book (when it’s done, the dataset will also be uploaded).

My best guess is that I need 13 to 18 solid work days to finish it. But:

  • I’m having cataract surgery on June 4 and June 18. It’s not clear whether this and side-effects will keep me away from the computer two days, four days, or more.
  • Covid-19 and its effects are somewhat debilitating.
  • Flat-out murder and a so-called leader fanning the flames is a lot more debilitating. I used to live in a great country.

Anyway, given all that, I’d guess July is likely–when in July, well, depends on all of those. Perhaps mostly on the last, which is discouraging.
