You may notice some of the images don't look so good. On Saturday, December 13, 1997, a careless maintenance man left a valve open on the chillers that cool the building where I was teaching at UVa. One result was that my office ceiling rained coolant. The flood destroyed a number of books and damaged many postcards.
