Gone to New Orleans
I'm headed to New Orleans for a software conference today. It'll be my first time visiting! I'll be enjoying a riverboat cruise up the Mississippi, plenty of fish and spicy foods (not to mention beignets), and traipsing about between conference rooms at the convention center to learn about things that would probably bore you to tears: like controlling online faculty and advisor access through fine grained access rules for our self-service system, best practices for dealing in the system with students who have concurrent curricula, and setting up workflows to streamline the grade change process.
Wow, that was a long sentence. One can tell I've been listening to a Dickens book lately. I've been going through Dombey and Son. It's definitely a long one and not one of my favorites, although the other day I had a moment where one scene made up for 800 pages of relatively boring set up.
Anyway, I'll be out of town for five days; you'll be able to see photos on FB once I'm back, hopefully! And if you're not on FB, I'm sorry, I'm not gonna make the effort to post them here.
