Whee! I was offered the Praxis II teaching assistantship!
It was just _perfect_ for my interests. I’ll get to set up wikis, blogs, and other fun things to help the students manage and publish their thoughts. Whee!

Creating thumbnails with Imagemagick

January 9, 2006 - Categories: adphoto

Creating proper thumbnails in Photoshop was a mission and a half. I found a handy Imagemagick incantation for thumbnails. Here’s the one I’ll use to create 400×400 centered thumbnails for the photo gallery.

The emperor’s three questions

January 9, 2006 - Categories: Uncategorized

From http://www.textfiles.com/stories/emperor3.txt :

Remember that there is only one important time and that is
now. The present moment is the only time over which we have
dominion. The most important person is always the person you are
with, who is right before you, for who knows if you will have
dealings with any other person in the future? The most important
pursuit is making the person standing at your side happy, for
that alone is the pursuit of life.
