I spent the morning supervising the Advanced Web Apps projects. Michaela sped ahead with her site. I have persuaded her that she would be better off making a static site and then wordpressizing it, than trying to customise an exiting theme. She finally believed me and today we got it going, and by 14:00 she had done 80% of it and understood what she had done. Mission accomplished.
After a lunch of crispbread and cottage cheese I turned to the doctoral Powerpoint presentation and worked on it until nine thirty. It is a long process and I will need to do it all again at the beginning of next year, because it now seems likely to form the major part of what I might start talking about as my installation. By the time I left for home I had completed the first of the three slide shows and mapped out the second.
To my horror, when I stepped out of Arcada half an hour ago, it was snowing hard. Now I am walking from the bus stop by Plantagen to home and it is still snowing, although only the metal surfaces of cars and railings are cold enough for it to settle.
