Done with school forever

Just took my last exam this morning. I'm so relieved to be done; this week has been rather hectic. I'm sticking around Illinois for a week to go to a friend's wedding, then I'll be heading back to Virginia for the summer.

A few weeks ago my new Netgear router started acting up. I did a cold factory reset (holding the pin in the back while powering it on) but when it booted up all the lights stayed solid green. The device was inaccessible, and subsequent resets and reboots yielded no change. Thankfully the thing was still under warranty, so I sent it back to Netgear and just received the replacement in the mail this week. I had purchased a WGR614v6 International Version from newegg.com, but Netgear sent me back a brand new WGR614v7 North America Version! This version seems to have fixed the authentication bug I noticed in the v6. I also got to keep the old ethernet cable :) So even though I had to pay a few dollars to ship the old one out, I'm still satisfied with Netgear's quick response and their better-than-the-original replacement device. I'm using it now as I type this with no problems :)

Lastly, we've finally rolled out our LDAP creation tool on chicagolug.org. Sign up, or update your account info. This means our wiki is open to all who register!

Congratulations on finishing up, it is great feeling, I know.

Great to see the LDAP works now. It is awesome we can do registration completely online now, hopefully we get a lot of people joining!

Um...I seem to be in need of a technical genius and after reading your blogs I'm convinced you're rather knowledgeable concerning computers and the like...also after further research I became aware of the fact that you are the most proficient student intern to ever have been employed at USGS. Not only are you incredibly bright you seem to enjoy long talks over dinner and curling up with a good book both of which are my favorite pass-times. That half of a smirk/smile shown in that photo you've got up is quite attractive if I may say so myself...want to go out sometime? ;)
