First Lecture Woes..... The first lecture that I have taught in over a year that I hadn't printed overhead slides for, just in case, and of course they were needed!!! Network down, flakey CDrom drive, data projector unhappy..... slow printer, photocopier needed 6 minutes of warm up time... grrrrrrr I was totally thrown, and felt like I was drowning all lecture! Not to mention I was trying to keep talking on no breath, and despite a microphone, had no voice left by the end of it. So apologies to the students who may have received some garbled speech, and to the ones who will listen to it online.. where I'll probably sound completely terrible. Already we are behind schedule.

I'm crashing - I've got it set up and linked in as much as possible. Any suggestions please let me know. I'll be working on this blog, and converting my honours logbook over to a related blog at some stage. I'm hoping that each blog has it's own templates and style sheets, or else I'm going to be very annoyed. Anyhow... enough for tonight, I need sleep.

Moulin Rouge

I have several of the songs stuck in my head.. No-one told me it was a comedy! I found it to be a very funny movie, with wonderful costumes and theatrical acting. I wonder how much the music rights would have been - many songs were used that would have cost a lot!
