Mini-Book

Asus EEEPCAs part of our advanced, foreward-thinking prioritized objective mindset, we ordered a 4 gig Mini-Book Eee PC today. Early reviews tempted us into this purchase, and I’ll post some of our hands-on observations once it arrives.

Worst case: it becomes an office paper weight. Best case: it becomes what I buy for my kids for Xmas. Their might even be some school uses in that range…

Meanwhile, our research into student information systems continues. The Senior Systems demo was interesting in how they integrated PDF forms (two-way?) into the application process, and apparently allow scanned attachments to an ongoing creation of a online application packet. An application could be saved and added to until the parents decided to finally submit the forms (and keep a PDF version for themselves). I believe that future updates could recreate pre-populated PDFs for the parents to work from, but I need to confirm that. Interesting.

Next week, we see what Blackbaud currently offers in the SIS arena.

Sailing news: my wife has now surpassed me in both certifications (RYA 1 and 2) and heavy weather sailing. She did a three-day trip last weekend with some active sailing in Force 7 winds, and had a great time. In fact, she’s feeling so confident now that it’s scary. The title “first mate” may be in my future.
