Read some of the Karp & Miller 1969 and Rackoff 1978 papers. Still no clue how to generalize VAS coverability tree arguments. Got some of the complexity theory homework done, or at least thought through. Dinner at Max & Erma's with the Forum. Saw Atom and his Package at the underground, and the band that opened for him, which was pretty fucking cool. They had a gameboy, electric bass, and drums, with some funky custom cartridges for the gameboy. Chirpy square waves and powerfully catchy syncopated gut-thumping beats. Good stuff.
