For starters, in Middle/High School math classes, anytime the term 'adjacent' was used, regardless whether or not I was actually paying attention, my head would turn. And working in Software Development, JSON is a favorite. And yes, there's an app Dilbert for that... (via Dilbert) Read more [...]

Network Security Class

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I start and end my day in the same room in Baldwin.  The 9am class is Network Programming.  The 3pm class is Wireless and Mobile Networking.  For the first 3 or so weeks of the quarter I sat in the same class for each class.  Second row/left side/furthest seat left for Network Programming and Fourth row/right side/furthest seat to the right for Wireless and Mobile Networking.  And it was good. One class I walk into my 9am Network Programming and realize Read more [...]
