I am not actually sure why these were two separate applications, one is a continuation I guess. Although it is strange they were published at the same time. Oh well, maybe in my future training I will understand the whole patent process.
I just checked my calender, I am triple booked on Wednesday and double booked on Friday. How is that possible! Especially at my level. Oh well, since I seem to have two department meetings this week I can leave the one on Friday early.
