Improvements to Ios5 for the IPad. The split keyboard is great for typing in landscape. And there are a number of improvements to Safari.

Yeah. Total geek.

I got to spend the entire day with my grandson, Sam, on the Sandy River.

In the first pic, Sam is working his new spey rod
The second is about a half acre of stacked stones along the river

wolf, et al:

Thanks. I know it was risky. But I survived, though as you can see in the pic below, the firewood has returned its carbon to the atmosphere already.

I'm back in my mind now, thanks!

Re: Lamplighter's picture of stacked stones.

Now imagine if someone had painted faces on all of those stones ....

Making me happy today is the following (redacted) email:

Quote:
Dear Dr (Zengum),

You have successfully completed your probation period and are now confirmed in position of (General Smartass) in (Miscellaneous Academics Division) until 31-DEC-2049.


Effectively, tenure, so long as I keep working and don't screw up (or one of my students).

Should I tell them I hope to retire before I'm 77?

Now, Wolf, hurry up and get that job you mentioned so I don't feel bad about being happy about this.

Good job Zen. I hope tenure is everything you thought it might be.

eta: you can still screw your students. You just have to declare it.
