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…
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 semester is winding down. And I’ve been spending the lion’s share of my time trying to stay on top of grading. <<Sigh>> Looks like a new Amazon … Continue reading Another Day in Paradise
So it’s Spring Break this week. And I’m working. Naturally. I’ve been struggling to put together a syllabus for a special topics class in System Administration. It’s proving to be tougher than I thought it would be. But I’ll get there. I’ve also been ‘producing’ video lectures (well, one so far, but I’ve got two more scripted and ready. I discovered very quickly that trying to … Continue reading Spring Break
