Shoveled!   Will take bus to the union party tonight… but roads are pretty nice.   (Okay, will probably take bus, unless helmet gets on head as it sometimes does.) I wish I knew why searching files doesn’t work any more.   I pulled up my flash drive, searched for *.xcf — GIMP files — and sorted by […]

Argh!   Re-learning the “if you’re doing a repetitive task, you’re probably doing it wrong” lesson which I was thinking while I was making array images, none of which I can find.  The GIMP interface for “export as” confounds me.   I cannot figure out where a file is going.  I have to save it and then […]

Yes, I griped at Sal Khan’s statement about the “average” student wanting to get out of class early (C level student? or… did you mean “typical”?) When a tweet stated that a site got a certain number of  hits, downloads … “every. single. day.”   — oh, and it’s an educational resources site — I griped.  […]

Goal for this break:   to figure out a conscious system for working on the assorted projects.   I have been sometimes actually successful at letting others take care of students for an hour or two. Today’s task is to look through our Cobra Math course and plan out a four week version of a “class.” In […]
