Gone fishin': See you in a bit

For some of us, that’ll mean a little R&R; for others, a chance to work on other Lab projects for a bit. No posts or tweets next week, barring something huge and unexpected. Feel free to poke through our archives to find something to read. But otherwise, we’ll see you in a week or so.
