Although it sounds like something from Princess Bride (or … what was that movie that had the Pit of Eternal Stench?), the gateway of last resort is, in fact, something I’ve learned about this week since we started spending all the hours God sends (plus a few we steal from other sources) learning how to configure routers (the sign posts and traffic lights at junctions on the information super-highway).
This entry just to say that the training goes on at its own pace, that I am setting my alarm clock for 5.30am even though its the vacation and nearly christmas and that the whole “team” of staff taking the training are turning into cabbages. Here I am cramming for exams — yup, just like my students — and retaining little — just like my students.
Think I’m going to sleep on Christmas day.
