Demolition of the old site in Olin started today! Yeeeeehaw!!!

I have to admit that it was very strange to come to the 4'th floor and see the ceiling being torn down in the old mail room and the other rooms as well. Tomorrow they will be erecting a temporary protective/security door and several of the existing walls will be torn down! I'm tempted to grab a sledgehammer and give some of these a few whacks...but reason will prevail I'm sure.

The new anticipated date of all of the physical construction is July 31. At that point we'll be installing the computers, virtual reality gear, consoles, projectors, networks, etc. in order to be ready for the beginning of the Fall semsester.

We've also just ordered furniture for the lab and it promises to be quite sharp. In some places quite shocking! Hopefully quite comfortable throughout! In the Immersion room, I've asked for a quote and will most likely order a powered La-z-boy Matinee chair. You'll have to pry me out of that chair while I'm "playing" with Flight Simulator!

The contents of the Audio room have been decided as particular we'll be getting:

Cakewalk Sonar 4 Producer software (2 licenses)
Reason 3 (2 licenses)

That's a pretty nice studio setup. Somebody should do a Podcast from there.
