Lab cancelled this week

Lab is cancelled this week.  I’m fighting a sore throat and a chest cold and there’s Strep Throat in my house.  So rather than exposing you all  let’s do a take home lab this week.  Watch the forums for the lab hand-out.

Too many lectures on the front page

A few folks have commented that the quick time version of the lectures are all downloading at the same time when they load the front page.  In order to cut down on the download size and increase the speed at which the front page loads, I’ve reduced the number of posts that appear on the front page.

If you are looking for an older lecture, scroll to the bottom of the front page and look for the Previous button.  This will take you to previous blog postings.

Drive safe if you do go to lab

Randolph area schools are closed today and the rain is coming down fairly hard here.  Please note that you should not put yourself in harms way to attend the lab.  We can do a make-up lab session next week if need be.  Unless things get worse, I intend to be at VTC in the Green lab this evening.  If the weather does deteriorate further and I don’t make it.  I’ll post the lab cancellation on twitter/facebook/here.
