Today's Gratitude Item: Getting a loan computer at school. I've been without a laptop all week and its been pretty horrible (its hard to prepare electronic resources when denied the 'electronics' to do so). Was finally able to use a loan machine today - the snafu was not the fault of our IT guys. It was not my fault either. "Middle Men" can be rather inconvenient - especially when they are not efficient.
