After few weeks of frustrations, I finally could validate my analytical method.
It'd been a repeated failure.... I woke up at 4:30AM, arrived at the lab around 5AM, and worked until dawn... There were nothing coming up except disappointment...
Anyway, with a promise that I made to my son to answer him a question, I pushed myself until all troubles were solved...
Finally, the method was validated... So, I extracted tons of samples during the past few days. Expectedly, results will come up (pretty) in the next following day.
So, right now, I'm camping again... Actually I started to do this since yesterday... having breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the lab... For your information, those meals were all frozen foods... So, just throwing them into a microwave and eating them before I starved to death!! :)
Walking up and down the hall to inspect my scientific instrument which is equipped with an ill-mannered autosampler... It made mistakes all the time. So, instead of having the autosampler as my slave, I am its slave!! :)
Anyway, after this, I and my son will plan for our trip to a professional tennis tournament somewhere in the US. It might be the one in Cincy, DC, Indy, or New York....
I will let you know what's going to be soon... :)
I will be here in the lab until 11PM, at least. And, I will start over again around 5AM in the following morning. :(
================================= Note: My life has been intertwined with works and many others. New responsibility has emerged, resulting less and less time for my ordinary life. Although, a love to write is still intact... But having less time is related to having less imagination.... Therefore, I could not come up with new writings for quite some times.
It might be a good time for me to leave this forum for moment.... Please take it as Mr. A.T. is having a sabbactatical leave or something like that....
As noted above, my love to write is still the same... and will not be changed. Sometimes somehow, I hope I could come back and give some thoughts in this blog once more.
Cheers, Mr. A.T. June 6th, 2008
My pen-name in Pantip is amatuer translator. Actually, I'm a lousy translator with lame translation. My pen-name is somewhat misleading, I have no background in linguistics what-so-ever. Anyway I love to read, write and communicate with people...
Reading is my most favorite hobby. I read everything from shopping bags to articles in theoretical physics. I do research and teaching for my living. So, reading, writing, thinking and doing research works are my everyday routine.
I would like to define myself as a person who is accepting new ideas and adopting those into my way of life.
I believe in power of knowledge/education. I think every society can be a better society with knowledge. Ignorance can be dispelled by it. Humanity can live sustainably and harmoniously with each other along with its biosphere with understandings in the nature surrounding it.
Apart from my philosophical thoughts reflecting who I am, I can tell you something I like or love in particular;
I love dogs.... Particularly, labradore retrievers.... One day, I would like to spend my time and life with them as a big part of my family.
Zhuge Liang is my hero. With his wisdom and faithfulness, he led a tiny army to a mighty and formidable kingdom. He left his humble residence with a hope to come back. But, sadly, he had never returned and died far far away from home in a horse carriage in a battle field. If I could choose where I would, I would say where-ever my lovely wife was nearby.
I value happiness and my family as my first priority. My profession and my philosophy come in the second. Pursuit in wealth has never been in my desire.
I'm glad to be your friend, and look forward to seeing you around krub.
