Mycologue's office is being renovated, which means torn apart, insulated, dry-walled, painted and carpeted. But my main concern was my computer, which had to be discombobulated during the process. It has more cables coming out of it than you can shake a stick at, as the picture shows. While the carpet was being laid, I was apparently unable to concentrate on anything... However, as this blog proves, I eventually managed to reconnect everything, and all is well again. The main difference is that I am now working in relatively civilized conditions, rather than something that looked like a hurricane had just passed through. I wonder if it will have any positive effect on my productivity? Perhaps I will be able to find things a little more easily, but only, as Laurie points out to me every day, if I "edit" my hordes of hoarded papers.
