Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.

Physical Review B - it's where the group I post-doc'd submitted most of our work (material structure/thermodynamics/kinetics subtopic). Took me a bit longer to get this second one in than the first I did with the group though (going off to a job does that :P)

Sure does. I still have a PRL that needs to be written, the bulk of the work having been done over a year ago. Though a good chunk of it is in the PRA from March.

the short format of PRLs and the rapid communications make em tough, from what I've heard, never wrote one myself. Though as I understand getting one accepted looks really good on a CV because it usually means you've done something big and exciting :D

And yeah, I think the time-scale for getting some of these things in the pipe and finished can really get crazy. Physics journals are better than the engineering ones I published in during grad school though - one had a turnaround time of like 6 months to a year. Though getting an email from a grad student asking about the specifics of a derivation I did about 5-6 years ago (published it about then too), on a topic I haven't worked with in about 4 years, was... interesting (read: I found the paper then scratched my head for like an hour trying to remember where I came up with something :P)

It really depends on the journal, and in many cases, the reviewers. Phys Rev is usually pretty fast. I've had other papers waiting for a month or two on a reviewer.

I still get e-mails regarding my Science paper, but usually only one a year or so. Luckily I still feel pretty competent about that material, even 6 years later. I can only hope that it remains that way after 6 years of inactivity on the subject, though.

Oooo... Science. I haven't done anything nearly cool enough to end up there.

Heroic Hand of Morchok: check
Heroic Blackhorn shield: check

Not a bad haul imo

No SD dropped for you in that many weeks? Grats on the shield though.

Took Souldrinker 14 weeks to drop.

I have yet to see Indomitable Pride at all. It hasn't dropped for my paladin in LFR, normal or heroic yet, after 223 boss kills that can drop it. If my druid didn't have it, I'd think it didn't exist.

I've used Souldrinker for 2 weeks now, and I'm not really convinced as to its value. it is nice at madness when it heals you for 50k during cataclysm, but otherwise I feel it leaves a lot to be desired and is nowhere near the potency of the other Deathwing weapons. The extra mastery on the Hand of Morchok and shield have enabled me to push another 3.5k life unbuffed to 233k, I feel that this will make more of a difference than the occasional 8k heal from Souldrinker.
