Today's Gratitude Item: Finally finishing my programming course. Have had to wait about two weeks for the last (optional) lecture to be posted. There was no assignment with the lecture which is a pity as the assignments really helped to consolidate the material. Still, it was a nice 'taster' of level 3 programming.

Today's Gratitude Item: Finally catching up on some sleep! The fact that I spend a significant proportion of my weekends 'dead to the word' is a bit worrying though...

Sky Net

In a fractal world, sometimes the sky and ground meet.

Today's Gratitude Item: That my iPad email *finally* matches reality. For some reason it kept showing a handful of old, deleted messages. When I tried to delete them (again), it told me this was not possible. The only way to fix it was to delete the email account and then re-add it.

Bauble 7.3

As in an upgrade compared with previous attempts. Would look good on Christmas tree.

Today's Gratitude Item: Finally figuring out how to boot Windows 8 in 'safe mode' (the 'magic' sequence was to hold down 'shift' and click restart). One of my students had a weird problem where she updated her machine last night and then the screen started flickering and we could not do anything on it. Hopefully restoring to an earlier point has worked.
