Minutes Pass Like Hours

The fun continues…

Normally, the school goes into a nice semi-dormant stage in the summer, and we can both work and think as we re-image computers, replace servers, fix up the wired and wireless networks, and recover a little of our souls.

This year, we have larger summer programs than ever, ongoing data-alignment projects, more computers than ever to image, and new initatives like crazy (EdLine, PaperCut, Secure Wireless, New Construction, and more). The funny part is that we work as hard as possible to make things transparent or as fast and easy as possible for others. That’s the normal goal, but doing it can be pretty extreme.

Cal 20 SailboatLast I heard, we had over 150 different groups and comittees on campus that meet and develop their own programs. The list is amazing– it’s a thriving community, but it reminds me somewhat of a city in microcosm.

I had a wonderful sail on our Cal 20 last night, and we weren’t back at the dock until nine p.m. Great wind, beautiful spinnakers on the racers. I felt recharged, for about 14 hours. Next week, I’m looking forward to driving away for the TechShare conference for three days up in Bainbridge Island. I’m definitely taking my bike.
