Re: [hreg] Digest Number 482
- Hi Nubia,
Thanks for the advice. I've just gotten a job with AWS
Scientific in Albany, NY desiging a wind farm for the
Dominican Republic. I'm really excited since it
combines my interests in wind energy and Spanish.
Thanks again for your help. I hope you're doing well.
Albany is near Boston, so maybe we can get together
sometime. Good luck at Brandeis.
