Just can’t help myself

I’ve been plugging along all semester in an online introductory IT class.  Now, it hasn’t been worthless; I’ve been exposed to quite a bit of stuff I didn’t know or was only vaguely familiar with, but the whole experience has been rather frustrating.  Feedback from the instructor has been minimal.  Out of assignments for 23 […]

A word to the wise

In case you haven’t been following the story, the Obama White House has requested that if you see anything (comments, e-mails, blogs, etc.) that seems “fishy” (i.e. anything that disagrees with or questions the official propaganda claims about all the wonderful things the current health care reform legislation is supposed to do) you should notify […]
