The beginnings of a SysAdmin

Filed under: Cool Stuff,School,Work — AJ @ 5:39 pm

Ok, my FreeBSD system is up, but DNS is a pain in the butt.  I just posted my Media Studio: Imaging portion of the site.  You can link to it here.  Enjoy.  It was my first work with hard-coded HTML, so don’t expect too much.  Right now the photocopy collage’s are just place holders, but everything else is working.  Its fairly simple right now, but I will try and make it better as we get in to the utilities I’m more familiar with.

Winter Wonder Work

Filed under: Personal,School,Work — AJ @ 5:37 pm

Merry late Christmas everyone.  Hope you all had a good one.  I’m working over in the distance education office over winter break.  I got an X-box and a printer for Christmas. : ))  As a semi-important update note, you should download Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.1 from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html if you haven’t already done so.  This update will allow you to use Acrobat web-forms like the ones on this site and it will also allow you to verify security certificates for Acrobat documents. (Also used on this site.)  Anyway, despite much frustration and confusion surrounding my grades, it seems like most of the issues have been cleared up and I am officially a sophomore now. Yeah.  : )  Anyway, I’m at work now and should probably get back to what I’m working on.  I’ll post next semester’s schedule soon,  but until then, I’m taking Discrete Structures, Models of Computation, Studio: Imaging, and Intro to Visual Communication.

SCUBA and other cool stuff

Filed under: Cool Stuff,Personal,School,Work — AJ @ 5:32 pm

Lets see, school has been interesting and fun so far. I’ve signed up for SCUBA certification and bought my gear. I’m REALLY looking forward to SCUBA. I want to learn to SCUBA Dive, skydive, and fly, so learning to SCUBA dive is a big step. I can’t quite figure out what my DSA professor means by “constant” memory on my project, oh well. I guess that is what I’ll have to do after class this week. The laptop is working out great. Rensselaer Christian Association rocks and everybody should at least check out one meeting. It’s sort of funny, I’m getting more sleep on weekdays than I am on weekends. I guess that is a change from high school. I’m working with Video’s for Change over in the incubator chamber as a part-time editor/consultant. I’m also working with UPAC Lights and UPAC Sound as a tech. I’m glad AIM exists, cause it is a really easy way of staying in contact with my friends that are out at college. Oh, and I got one of those wireless optical mice. It’s really nice when I’m working with Maya. Maya, for those of you who don’t know is a piece of computer graphics software. Alias/Wavefront makes a free copy called Personal Learning Edition. It’s available at http://www.aliaswavefront.com/ . It has a really good tutorial if you have never done computer graphics but have been interested. If you want any help with it, just IM me or e-mail me and I can help you out.
