Whats going on with school and thoughts about education in general

6/28

Ahhhh…another day in paradise. I spend the entire day updating two labs for my class tomorrow. Sass – exciting stuff. No, really, it’s a great technology for creating and maintaining CSS for your websites.


 

I was going to do a really profound post today about current events and a little bit about my take on them. But at the moment, I’m not much in the mood to. So that’s it for today

Peace out!

Changes

A friend asked me for some help with his WordPress site yesterday, which kind of rekindled my interest in this one. I’ve made some changes ‘under-the-hood,’ which shouldn’t be obvious to you, the visitor. There are a few more I want to do, but its been a long day. We’re now running on Ubuntu 18.04 and PHP 7.2. Tomorrow, maybe, I’m going to upgrade the … Continue reading Changes »

Lockdown

Back from Neverland I suppose this would have been a good time to be contributing to this thing. Two months into the CV-lockdown and I’m finally getting around to writing something here. Overall, I’ve enjoyed the quarantine. I mostly keep to myself anyway and have most everything I need here at home. I missed seeing my students in person this past semester. But otherwise, for … Continue reading Lockdown »

This Masquerade…

No real reason for the title. Well, yeah, that’s the song that’s playing on my stream at the moment. No other significance, though. So, the semester’s begun. Things are looking good so far, though we’ve only had one class meeting so far. My sysadmin class is really small, which usually makes for a great semester with them. The other two are bigger, which isn’t a … Continue reading This Masquerade… »

WoW

Well, last night I did it. I got my first toon all the way up to Level 120. Yay, me. Seems a bit anti-climatic in retrospect. But at 2:00 am it was a pretty heady rush, let me tell you. I’m thinking of changing specialties and going from there. Maybe pick up a profession or two — this character, I didn’t bother. Inflation is so … Continue reading WoW »

Happy New Year

   Well, once again, it’s been a while. I came across this video (again, actually) and decided to share I took the server down for a few days. Just brought it back up. It was getting hammered with spam. I tried to firewall the culprit, both on the server and through Wordfence. But, alas! No joy. I’m hoping that taking it down for a … Continue reading Happy New Year »

I made a meme :)

gandalf

For all my nerd friends out there…and in response to being a ‘client’ for one of the project groups in my classes, I made a meme generator. They noted the memes/silly pics I routinely post in notices for them and pitched the idea of a meme repository for for their site. On reflection, I told them that’d be a great idea, but (though it’s outside … Continue reading I made a meme 🙂 »

Couldn’t resist sharing…

I dunno why, but this cracked me up: It’s been a while since I rode. Though that’s all I did (all I had) back when I was 18. Back then, I knew upstate South Carolina like the back of my hand. Last time I was there visiting, I needed a GPS receiver to extricate myself from the country backroads. Oh well, time marches on. I … Continue reading Couldn’t resist sharing… »

….aaaaaaand Again

So tomorrow starts a new semester. One in which I’m gonna be incredibly busy. Four classes, 103 students (registered … we always see some attrition at the beginning of the semester), two different buildings. That’s right, our move to the Millennium Centre is underway. The new lecture/lab rooms are spectacular! I’ll try to get some pictures to post later. The main lab has 46 workstations, … Continue reading ….aaaaaaand Again »
