I’d make a good data crisis counselor

I won­der if Dri­veSavers hires any telecom­muters? Maybe I should get in touch with Kel­ly Chessen. In any case, she has some very good advice in this Com­put­er­World arti­cle, How to calm some­one in a cri­sis Chessen is alert for cer­tain words and phras­es that might indi­cate a per­son is in pro­found dis­tress. “Some­times I’ll […]

Testing Post2Blog

I’m play­ing with Post2Blog, which is the Give­away Of The Day. It seems inter­est­ing so far, although I don’t think I’ll be able to make my Word­Press to LJ cross­post­ing work. (I’m just post­ing to LJ at the moment for a first test.)  It does, annoy­ing­ly, have a sep­a­rate win­dow for HTML as opposed to the […]

Um, No, That Isn’t What the Password is “S’posed to Be”

My school “upgrad­ed” its Ora­­cle-based stu­dent records man­age­ment sys­tem weeks ago. I know that it is Ora­­cle-based because ever since the “upgrade,” every time I try to access my “stu­dent por­tal” (my pri­ma­ry means of inter­act­ing with the school, as an online stu­dent), I get an “Ora­cle Site Builder” page. Since the actu­al class­es are […]

Midnight? Already?

Wow. It’s been almost as fun lis­ten­ing to the kids (Katie’s gang, here for her birth­day par­ty) game as it would be to be part of a game myself. Maybe I will play Vam­pire some­day. I sup­pose I’d trust Sam to run just about any­thing. They’re watch­ing some­thing now — Mir­ror­mask, it sounds like. I […]

“School Days, School Days, Good Old Golden Rule Days”

Is that how the lyric goes? I know, I can Google it. I should be in bed. If I get any­where near a lyric archive, I’ll get sucked in and there’s no promise that I’ll get any sleep at all! That’s impor­tant, as I have my first class tomor­row! It should real­ly be some­thing that I […]

Empowered by a microphone

I gave myself a gift today: a head­set with my very own micro­phone for the pod­cast. It isn’t as fan­cy as the one that I was using, which is my part­ner’s Very Nice (read: intim­i­dat­ing) micro­phone. That one, though, sits on the desk­top on its own stand. I know this sounds piti­ful, but I have […]

Livejournal Crossposter and LJ as an aggregator

Live+Press works, but it gives me lots of messy error mes­sages. I don’t like error mes­sages, even if the post does even­tu­al­ly go where it’s sup­posed to go. Odd­ly, it works just fine on Katie’s site. We’re using the same ver­sion of Word­Press on the same serv­er. Very strange. So now I’m test­ing Live­Jour­nal Crossposter. […]

Weird

My paid LJ account is about to expire, and I’m not feel­ing any anx­i­ety about it. There are far more impor­tant things to pay for. Yeah, I’ll miss the extra icons and the sim­ple URL, but I’ve been try­ing to move to my blogs any­way. They’re syn­di­cat­ed here. Oh — if you com­ment on the syndicated […]

For Pila: How to Make Your Own Podcast

I was absolute­ly delight­ed to receive phone com­ments from Pila this week­end! I’ll play them in the next pod­cast. Pila also asked about how he would go about get­ting start­ed with doing his own pod­cast, so I’ll put on my Tech­noMom hat and try to answer that here. I took advan­tage of my own in-house expert, […]
