Exchanging Ideas on Math 101

Monday, January 9th, 2006

Robert at Casting Out Nines has suggested that we cross-blog about our experiences with our Liberal Studies Math courses. Fair enough! I’ve created a new category, Liberal Studies Mathematics (as Robert has done), and will try to write about my thoughts and experiences in teaching this course.
This three-hour course is a core requirement […]

New theme

Saturday, December 31st, 2005

After watching Robert play with themes at Daddyspeak, I thought maybe I’d spruce up the Ticklish Ears site as well. This one is called fdawn, but I’ve replaced the “dawn” image with a picture I took at Grandfather Mountain, NC.
Wish I had an intriguing picture or graphic of ears, but I’ll stick […]

Christmas Vacation

Friday, December 23rd, 2005

We’re spending some time with my folks in Satellite Beach, FL. This means that I’m limited to dialup, so posting has been and will be light (where is The Ticklish Ears Support Team when I need them?).
I’ve snuck away to the local Panera Bread Store to take advantage of the Free Wi-Fi. […]

Lack of posts

Sunday, December 11th, 2005

Sorry for the light blogging. I’m getting finals ready, final projects graded, going to holiday functions of one kind or another, and when I’m not doing that, I’m being uninspired.
I’ll try to get up a couple of end of semester posts in the next day or two (preview: things didn’t go as well as […]

Purple Finger for Freedom

Tuesday, December 6th, 2005

I like this idea.
With all the bad news we seem to hear about Iraq, we need to be reminded that they are about to have their third (third!) election in less than a year. Click here to see how you can show your support for the Iraqi people next week.

(Thanks to John […]

Homecoming and Alumni Band

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

Made the annual pilgrimage to Tallahassee this weekend for FSU’s homecoming game (this year the ‘Noles pulled it out at the last minute to beat Maryland 35-27).
I’ve been going now for the past four years to play trombone in the FSU Marching Band Alumni during pre-game festivities. It’s almost worth it just […]

Comment Spam

Tuesday, September 27th, 2005

I’ve been getting a ton of comment spam lately, so I’m considering solutions. There are a number of plugins provided by Wordpress, including disallowing comments on old posts (apparently a target for comment spammers) and using a Captcha approach for comments (where the commenter must type in the text displayed in an image).
I’d be […]
