Had actual success at doing some work without straying, so I’ve got the first five powerpoints done (of 17, though.) Will be singing at Mass tonight, then heading out to the Esquire for the Duke of Uke and his Novelty Orchestra, which unfortunately for *me* seems to be a popular New Year’s Eve venue. I’ll […]

freecodecamp and that holiday feeling

So I tried to get back to FreeCodeCamp adn it logged me in as Moo2UFoodie. Amusing because my father, in high school, was part of a faux fraternity called “Mu Eta Pi” and their greetng was “Moo!” “Moo To You, Too!” Mostly I’m doing the holiday pinball bounce around with all the things that “hey!

I hope that I will remember to include […]

gnawing at the khan academy bone

Okay, Okay, I should dive deeper into D2L — but I watched a mess of videos and it’s 4:00 and Khan Academy came up in several assorted conversations, not initiated by me, today. I was inspired to share the “shipping beats perfection” motto per their employee recruitment, which meant I ended up reading more, including […]

I often struggle with puzzles… not this one.  https://twitter.com/davidwees/status/544490638948196352/photo/1 Four digit number :   k  h  t  u   (why those letters? ;)) Product of digits is not 0.   (Fast conclusion:  no digits zero.) tu = h   — very limited possibilities; product still has to be 9 or fewer but… that doesnt’ get […]
