|About three weeks ago, I lost the sync cord to my Palm Pilot. Here are the things I've done in the meantime to find it:|
|Remember my interview for the Technician in which I had the eerie feeling I was going to be misquoted?|
Well it didn't happen. I was quoted in context. And the first two words of the article were: "John Martin..." Something about that appeals to me.
[Aside to Myra if you're reading: I left the copies of that article you kept for me at the office. I hope they're still there. I do still want them.]
I worked from home today, editing error messages, which are supposed to adhere to this format:
State what failed here.
State why it failed here.
Tell the user how to fix the problem, or if s/he doesn't have authority to fix it to notify the system administrator.
Tell the system administrator what to do to fix the problem.
I am, or was, taking two classes this semester. One of them you've been reading about ad nauseum.
The other one is a Scientific Posters class, which is only a one-hour course that meets only five times in the semester from 4:30–5:45, and started this afternoon.
It turned out that there were only four people registered for the class, and at 4:30 only two of us were there. By 4:45, the other two people showed up.
Later that evening, I ended up dropping the course for a few reasons:
- I don't have a research paper from which I'm willing to create a scientific poster,
- I have to miss a class, and as I said, there are only 5 of them, and
- I spoke with Jason, and he can easily make the one-hour credit independent study course, which I'm going to take in the Fall, a two-hour credit course. (In addition to the one 3-hour course I'll be taking in the Fall, those 2 credit hours are what I need to complete my degree.)
ENG 675 class was short and sweet tonight. The class time was allotted to discussing the reviews by our peers of Draft 1 of our projects.
I was done both with the two people I had peer reviewed and with the two people who had peer reviewed me by 8:00. I stayed a couple of minutes after that to work out, what resulted in item 3 in the list just above, with Jason.
I got to bed by 11:00, and was sound asleep about three minutes after putting down the crossword puzzle.
