Day #2

Dear SDSU Chiller Plant:

Many thanks for still being broken. Looks like you won't be fixed until this weekend.

It's 87 right now in office, a new record.

Walking the Amazon

I only stumbled onto this recently, but this man just got through walking the entire Amazon...as in, along the river from its start to the Atlantic...first person to do it. In 859 days.

I've only started reading, but its pretty amazing.

another week done

I'm very happy to have made it through this last week. It was probably one of the most trying weeks at work that I've had in a very long time, as we tried to button up several new construction projects and new classrooms. One of our largest rooms, being converted out of old gym space, is still a tad behind but is due to be done this week. At least, that's the plan. Some HVAC was vandalized in the space two weeks ago, so they're still playing catch up.

In the travel department, my next trip on the docket will be a quick day trip to San Francisco in September for a RevoLabs workshop - we're looking to add their products to our Lecture Capture project, and they've had great reviews so far. Guess we'll see how that works out.

only 20 moves for a Rubik's Cube?

I wonder what computers they used too...


here it is

I've not been very good about writing here as of late, but I hope to rectify that situation starting with this post. The last few weeks have been a tad bit nuts with trips all over the place, but thankfully all flights and travels went well and now I'm back in the swing towards the start of the semester (jet lag finally going away). Yikes.

Today is a 4x10 day for me, so I've been taking things easy. I woke up this morning not feeling 100% - we'll see how I'm doing tomorrow as far as work goes. Not sure if it was something I ate last night or not...could have been maybe. Better to be safe than sorry these days with things going around. The White Sox are playing the Twins on WGN tonight too, so I will take the opportunity to watch them on TV which will be nice.
