Well, it’s 7:54am and I think I just finished the rough draft of my research paper for Social Problems that is due today (and not Thursday like I thought). It’s been a long time since I’ve pulled an all-nighter and I’m able to take it as well as I used to. I’m afraid this entire week is actually going to be a long one (maybe longer than last week?). Here’s my todo list:
Wednesday: Lesson Plan for Techniques needs to be done
Thursday: Unit Plan for Techniques due
Friday: Supreme Court Brief over Georgia v. Randolph due
That leaves my presentation on the unit plan, my Social Problems exam, the final draft of my Social Problems paper and my Military History final for the following two weeks.
All right, my bed is much needed now, hopefully I can get a couple hours before the first class that I need to go to at 11am.
Well, it’s a Saturday, and in an unprecedented move this semester, I went to work. Tech is moving its email from mbox to maildir and from UW-IMAP to Dovecot, so I’m here to answer the phones if anything goes wrong. So far, no one has called (probably because the phone number is in their email inbox, which they can’t access unless they store messages locally).
I’ve been poking around at my inbox while sitting in my office (my subnet has had access restored for testing) and things seem to have gone well. During the transition, they’ve removed the nulls from my mbox file (created by accessing my mail in more than once place at the same time), so I recovered about 12 messages that I thought I had lost. That was nice… what wasn’t so nice was their random placement throughout my folders.
Hopefully within the next hour, email should be accessible to everyone again and with any luck, there have been a couple minor problems in the process, but nothing the people in DCS (Distributed Computing Services) couldn’t handle. The only thing I really anticipate having to help people with is why they are seeing email from a couple years in the past (the null problem).
If anyone at MTU is having emali problems after the transition though, they can call 487-0010 and we can take a look at it.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves for the most part (sorry the page will take so long to load Mom and Dad).
The theme this year was, “Cartoon Art for the Young at Heart.”
You can find all the pictures I took on flickr.

Look closely at the mirror and you can see a face.

Well, Winter Carnival is again upon those of us at MTU. A 4 day weekend of celebration! Or as many of us end up utilizing the time: extra time to catch up on homework.
I took some pictures of the statues tonight when I went to campus, however I’m going to go back and see if I can get some better shots. I’ll post a few once I’m done taking them.
The MTU LUG had it’s biannual install-a-thon this past Saturday. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a very large turnout. We did get Linux installed on a couple of people’s computers, though we ran into problems with the Suse installer.
Oh well, here’s hoping the next one in the fall, accompanied by the normal number of presentations will generate some more interest.
