Friday, June 13, 2008Happy coincidences
Today I am turning in the last pieces of my tenure file to be sent to external reviewers. (I am burning *8* CD copies of my file as I write this.)
And, I received a UPS box filled with cookies and a thank you note from one of my best and brightest undergrads from the last two years.
I know who is going to go home and have celebratory homemade cookies and milk!
Update: The cookies are personalized!!!! She's going to UGA for law school--hence the black and red, but I'm not sure about the shape. Bulldog maybe?
Update2: It's the head of a gavel. The handle broke off.

Saturday, June 07, 2008Holding me back
I'm scheduled to get a new GT laptop this fall. Given the spyware that OIT installs on machines that log into the domain, I started thinking about getting one of these or these (back when there was a Linux option--WHERE DID IT GO!?!?!?!?!). Since I get lost without a right click and am baffled every time I'm forced to interact with a Mac, I was leaning toward the Linux option (which has now apparently disappeared!).
The only thing keeping me from Linux was the lack of a PDF editor. Perhaps by the time there's another small PC option that comes with all the drivers preloaded for Linux, there will also be a PDF editor.
