As Jakob was completing his final year at Humber, he applied to -- and was accepted at -- York University in the Cognitive Science program. And over the Labour Day weekend, he has moved into his new home (pictured above) in the "Village at York University" (a maximum 10 minute walk to classes). The small window directly above his head, and the three longer windows to the left are his new suite.

Here's the diploma which we were all pretty pleased to see (I found it sitting on my desk one day), however, I couldn't manage to get a picture of him holding it.

clements.ca website - NEW & IMPROVED!

Now with more mobile-friendliness!

Is it that time again? Yes, it is. It has been three years less a day since this website was last upgraded. And, as usual, besides a new look there is a whole lot of stuff happening under the hood, and as usual, I am writing this more for myself as a record of what the heck I did with those 100+ hours back in April 2015. (Does the future leave fingerprints on the past?)
