No, I've hardly ever talked with her at all!

By the way, what's up with you? After a period of energetic activity on Azimuth you seem to have disappeared? I'm wondering how much of this is due to my own poor management skills (I should have been encouraging you more and responding to all your suggestions), how much of it is due to you getting sick of Azimuth (which could be due to my poor management skills or the general quixoticness of trying to "save the planet"), how much of it is due to you getting busy after Christmas break ended, etc.
