I took a rather unintended two week hiatus. While my daily-posting streak was broken by a lack of connectivity in the dorms at the University of Iowa, my post-Iowa absence was due almost entirely to non-technical reasons. I spent the better part of a week packing up my office, followed by several days of settling into a new (but temporary) office—I’ve stepped out of the classroom and into the realm of textbook publishing for the next two years. The poor functioning of the air conditioner in my home office also didn’t help to encourage me to spend time at the computer writing blog posts.
So, while I’m not going to be in the classroom, I’m still very much involved in the educational community. As I’d said in my previous post on breaking the daily-posting streak, I intend to continue to post with some frequency and I hope that this will still be of use to people. Also, thanks to axelnielk88 for expressing a desire for me to continue posting.
Craig Pringle had the perfect post title, so I had to steal the idea. Here are some recent posts on some basic tablet functionality:

Unfortunately, as some of you may have noticed, my streak of posting at least once a day has come to an end. This is due in large part to a lack of ready access to the internet while I’m at this math competition in Iowa City, IA. I am writing this on the X60, using the built-in Bluetooth to connect it to my Moto V710 and Verizon’s Quick2Net (at least, I think it’s called Quick2Net—it’s the service that doesn’t have an extra monthly charge and just uses your regular minutes, but is slower than a 56k modem and that they don’t really advertize at all).
While I’m hoping to return to something at least close to daily posting when I return to a place with simple high-speed internet access, it is getting to be summer and a lot of teaching and education slows down in the summer. I hope that even if I can’t quite manage daily posting over the summer, you will still find useful information here.
