Everything in Easy
& Beautiful Reach

This is a redesign of what I now realize was a clumsy reworking of my desktop work page. I am updating my HTML skills (which date back to the previous century) and preparing to learn Java with Web Programming with HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript by John Dean. Before I can learn Java, I need to modernize my HTML, and this page was the obvious target.

Here are links to everything I need to do my work on the right and my do-list on the left. I update this do-list at least daily, with an occasional skip here and there.

I'm being honest with this do-list, but not too honest. I add DONE! or DEFERRED when it's done or if it can't be done. That happens too. Below is the list and to the right, links to work tools. Who says HTML and graphics aren't useful or that the day for lush pages has passed.

1) You believe letting go is psychobabble. Hanging on is the real challenge. You love a fools' errand.*
2) You are persistent. This makes you a decent researcher.*
3) You have learned to do without feedback for a while. You are a mobbing survivor.*
4) You don't respect the organization chart or rank. This is not a weakness. The world is a sewer. The water is purer on the bottom. *
5) You read the fantastic manual. You are K positive.*
6) You have the patience to deal with technology, long lines, compromises.???
7) You like numbers and stuff. You did not start out a people person. This is useful with the right kind of student or the right kind of decision.*
8) You know yourself and the limits of your eighteen year old skin. The world needs stuff people and you know when encounter someone who isn't. It's an oops moment.*
9) You are willing to try new techniques and things such as assessment for your classes. You are good at translating abstractions into usable techniques sometimes.*
10) You belive in your university's goal of student success.*

Don't be sad! Ten out of ten aren't bad. By the way, Thompson and Jennings did not ask me for my weaknesses. I guess we do that next week.
