@naga Our principal is letting teachers bring monitors home from the building for this purpose, which I fully endorse. I don't like having equipment collect dust.

FYI thrift stores are great for finding cheap monitors. My favorite used monitor cost me $15 and it's new enough to have HDMI in so I can use it with my Raspberry Pi.

And yeah you can bet I'll be using it when I'm running D&D games.

Currently using it to watch Adam Savage's YouTube channel.

I have not yet seen my first class of the day and grading has used up most of my spoons already.

Most of the projects scored really well, it's just that the process of scoring is tedious.

Was cold enough last night that some of my windows fogged up. Was still warm enough inside that I had to sleep with a fan on, but we're getting closer to that time of the year.

That's right: Hoodies and sweaters.

Today was a day full of reaffirming hope in the next few generations.

But also it started with a staff meeting at 8:15 am and ended with a Back To School Night that ran long until almost 8 pm.

"There is growing evidence that the atmosphere of Venus contains molecules" is one of my favorite XKCD lines, and it isn't even the final punchline of this strip.


Part of the struggle of working from home is smelling the contents of my slow cooker become more and more delightful while knowing I still have another 4 hours until it's done.

It's Friday.

More of us made it than did not.
