Server 2008 R2

I’m getting a crash course in Server 2008 R2. Due to the 64-bit requirements for Server 2008 R2 I’ve avoided the transition.

However, the system students use to get software only offeres R2. So I’m making some corrections on the fly. Mostly it’s lab instructions. The instructions say to X and students aren’t seeing the options for X. Less than thrilling that’s for sure!

But I’ll get through it. Guess I’m going to have to pick up a book on R2 and start expanding my knowledge, rather rapidly.

It’s good that it forces my hand, bad that it forces my hand.

[hopefully I’ll have more tech type info to post in the near future. I know, I know – I keep saying that.]

Winter Term 2011

Vacation was good tymes, certainly needed that. Very different traveling during Christmas time, but I could see us doing that again.

The week before the term started was, horrid! Didn’t get as much done as I’d wanted to. But I got enough done to be ready for students bright and early on the 3rd.

So far the term has been quite, a few admin type issues nothing major. I’m expecting a good term, a lot course editing and improvement. It’s a never ending process for sure.

Going to continue to improve on the attention to detail aspect of things.
