Day One Day Two Recap

I have made it through the first two days of school. It looks like it will be an interesting semester. As I continue in computer science the name of the game is that of continually peeling back the layers of abstraction so that as a programmer, I understand exactly how where and why the computer works the way that it does. It is really fascinating (and heady) stuff.

It is painfully obvious that there will be plenty of homework this semester. I went home yesterday with homework and reading assignments after the very first day. Homework may not be the most entertaining thing in the world to do, but at least when it is finished, the doer really feels like he/she has put in an honest days work.

I am still feeling rather un-inspired right now when it comes to having things to say with regard to blogging. However, I just downloaded the blogger plugin for Microsoft Word that allows one to post right from the word application. We'll see how it turns out. I am still a bit mystified about how I can encode links. It may suffer the same fate as blogging from email.

I am still looking for a good feed reader? I am now to the point where hovering over live bookmarks is getting to be a real pain. There must be a better way. Any recommendations?

Oh cool! When I hit publish, it brings up a window called "HTML Viewer" where I can edit. That is how I shall include links. Perfect!

I use the in-browser Firefox plugin Sage to view my RSS and Atom feeds. I really like the plugin because I don't have to mess with more windows to go back and forth between and it is simple to use...
