# Notice (Oct 19/05): So ends my stay here on Blogger. This morning Google implemented an anti-spam 'feature' that forces me to answer a challenge phrase when I want to post to my own blog. No notice of the change, nothing. Worse is that it doesn't even work! I type the phrase, submit, "An error occured", post deleted. Damn you, Google. Chances are I will revive my blog somewhere else, sometime soon. I'll post the new coordinates here as soon as they become available. (BTW, I'm unable to post anything to my RSS stream, so I'd appreciate it if readers could spread the word and ask people to take a look at this notice)

Update (Oct 19/05, ~noon): After a frustrating few hours (and not just trying out alternatives to Blogger), I've decided that this is a good time to take a break from all this. A day? A week? Who knows. But I need to step away from it before I pass a heavy magnet over the whole mess.

Update 2: According to this post, the reason I'm seeing the CAPTCHA (challenge phrase) is that Blogger has classified my blog as spam. Thanks. User for five years and now I'm spam. I searched the Blogger site, but there is no mention of how to get the spam flag turned off. There is also no way of contacting anyone at Blogger. Wow. Spam they say I am, so spam I must be. Maybe it is time to take a break.

Working on paper on engineering education : Class finished on Thursday night, which means that I have twenty or so projects to correct over the next two weeks. Also on my plate, and more importantly, is a paper/lit-review on engineering education. I've been working on this all semester, and are really behind. I've done a lot of work, but there is still very, very much to do. Not sure how I'll get this done before Dec 17, but I'm going to try.

Nathalie and also got started on our Xmas shopping today with a good-sized order to LL Bean. Although we are both very busy, we are trying to spread the Xmas tasks (planning, shopping, etc) over as long a period of time as possible. That way we will hopefully avoid being overloaded, and may still enjoy the holidays! :)

Back to my paper.
