Stupid question for speakers who use PPT: Do you normally present using the Presenter View? (That is: slideshow on the projector, slides+notes+controls on the notebook.) [I haven't done PPT in a while...but will be doing it several times next month.]
Do you have an interesting, hands-on activity for teaching about plagiarism and/or citation that you're willing to share? This great thread from a while ago http://friendfeed.com/lsw... has me thinking about how to better approach requests from faculty who expressly want me to address this.
EZProxy 2-parter: 1) Can EZP run in a virtual environment? If yes, 2) Can EZP be installed on a virtual windows server, even the web server is Linux? These are the kinds of questions the head of ref gets to ask in the absence of full-strength IT staff. *sigh*
Kindle Fire HD 8.9 arrived today--I think--apparently between 6:30 a.m. and 7:15 a.m. (unless it's been sitting on the stoop all night). Now charging; managed to connect to our wifi network (after rebooting router--we have a LONG security key that involves lots'o'shifts on that little virtual keyboard). After shopping, we'll set up Amazon account..
Serious question: If we want to get a tablet primarily to use the web (turns out the SF Chronicle's web e-edition is the only complete one), including email, and want high res: What makes the iPad worth $200 more than the Kindle Fire HD 9" or Nook HD+ 9"? (And which of the latter two is a better buy?)
Have any of y'all incorporated or LLC'd or whatnot in order to make part-time consulting (or other on-the-side business) easier for taxes? Was it worth it? How *exactly* did it help with financial stuff?
