Ended the day with a little scotch tasting.

Actually, it would be nice if fewer apps required a phone (i.e. Signal) and then I could just run most things exclusively on a computer. I can keep a computer operating smoothly for a lot longer than a smartphone.

My kingdom for a phone that isn't constantly warning me about being out of storage space.

Just found out that my first peer reviewed paper in the educational realm (in the area of Open Educational Resources) has been published: irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/ar Many thanks to the OER Foundation, my hard-working co-author Claire Goode, and to the good folks at the IRRODL journal for their help in making this happen!

I've been forcing myself to get at least 8 hours of sleep lately. It's still not enough.

Daughter has been struggling with her handwriting. Then we showed her cursive. She loves it and her handwriting in cursive is amazing!

Trying to pick out clothes to wear to my dad's funeral has me feeling like a kid playing "dress like an adult."

COVID vaccination rate among students on my campus 

As of Friday, the student vaccination rate on my campus is 58%. That's not good enough

We are really doing students a disservice by teaching them on Chromebooks in primary/secondary school. For many, their only other computing experience is their cell phones.

As a result, my first-year students don't know how to install software from the internet.

A journal using Manuscript Central is unsuccessfully processing my LaTeX files with TexLive 2013 and then tries to tell me that my files are the problem.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that they are using a tex distribution that is 8 years out-of-date!

My 8yo has been talking with a random accent that I couldn't place for the last few days. Just realized that she sounds exactly like Catherine O'Hara in Schitt's Creek. (she's never seen the show)

Between our CSA and our backyard garden, we are quickly becoming overrun with tomatoes.
