A couple of days ago, as I was driving to work, I heard a new voice on the radio. Her name is Lucy Kaplansky and she is terrific! I’m sure that she’s been singing and playing for years, but indi artists are a little harder to find than most. Anyway her website is www.lucykaplansky.com and I highly recommend her.
I stumbled accross this link for getting the touch pad of a Dell Inspiron 5150 to workin FreeBSD. It is:
Works perfectly. In order to make the touchpad work, you’ve got to set:
In your /boot/device.hints file.
I’m using nvidia commercial drivers
I am now working on getting BIND working on my new server. So I found two new links that should help. They are, respectively, http://www.swelltech.com/support/webminguide-1.0/ch08.html and http://rimuhosting.com/support/bindviawebmin.jsp.
Well, I was sitting at work, thinking about my new semester at school, when WHAM! – I realized that I hadn’t submitted my tuition reimbursement form here at work. For those of you who are aquainted with Convergys and its no-nonsense, no-mercy tuition plan, you know that this is a problem. A couple of semesters ago, I submitted a request at the end of the semester to HR, only to find out that they wanted it submitted at the beginning of the semester. So I lost a good 1500 bucks or so off of that mistake.
I got it right this time. No one is going to mess me over. I am now just waiting on HR to approve my tuition submission. Wish me luck- I’ll need it.
Well, I’m still running. I haven’t stopped yet. So proud. Looks like I’m back into the swing of things again. It’s a good thing- Dad signed me up for the Saint George Marathon.
On Monday and Tuesday, I went hiking with the father and brother-in-laws. We hiked Angel’s Landing and Observation point. I’m sure that I’ll write about that experience soon, but the point is this: I didn’t run those two days because they were a workout like unto themselves.
I’m not sure if I’ll run this afternoon, mainly for two reasons: 1) I have a lot of homework. 2) I’m a little sore from hiking.
So there you are- an update.
So the good news is that I survived last semester. I received two B minuses. One in Astronomy and one in Meterology. From what I understand, those should be the last of my science classes. Good. Great. Only one more dreaded subject to knock out of the way: Math. After that, things should get a little more interesting.
So I just need to figure out what exactly I’m trying to pull off, degree-wise: English? Journalism? Public Relations? Anything?
So I now have a 2.5 cummulative and a 2.7 for the last semester.
This morning, I attended the first of my two summer school classes. I went to my Intermediate Algebra classes, where I learned once again: Math is not my strong suit. This Saturday (and every Saturday until summer school’s out), I have a Philosophy class. I hope that it’s fun. It should be. Philosophy is interesting. Very stimulating, mind-wise. OK, time to go back to work.
