After a veritable forever of Maia being sick and gone, she’s finally less-sick and more-back!
We welcomed her with a sign:
We also expressed our fondness and love for Maia in form of algebraic graphs:
(This one describes the exponential increase in the level of suckiness of Maia’s illness over the time that Maia’s gone.)
(This one describes the general upward trend of the department’s mean “Missing Maia” value with a blip in it over time.)
(This one has a Z-axis? I don’t frickin’ know.)
(This one describes CW’s functionality and productivity in all its varying stages, with the asymptotes representing Maia’s absence from our department. We approach levels of productivity, but never manage to reach it with Maia gone.)
