The new year has begun and I’m back at work. I took some time off around the holidays to hang out with friends, and generally relax. I even made a turkey this year with stuffing and mash potatoes that didn’t come from a box! I am feeling much more refreshed now and I’m ready to get back to work.
This semester I will be teaching OOP244, DSA555 and GAM671. I will be moving my notes that were originally done in ms word to a wiki. I had originally planned to do it in straight html but I am finding that the editing tools there just isn’t quite up to what I want. Its fine for normal text but any time I want to do something more out of the ordinary it seems to just bug out. There is a good chance that this is simply the editor I’m using is not configured properly but a wiki is just so much easier to edit.
So far the main drawback is that I do not have a good way of transfering my diagrams. I do not like ascii art and I think that good diagrams are important. I’m trying out inkscape but it is a bit complex for what I want to do. I think that simplest way for me to do it (at least for now) is to screenshot and save as .png files the diagrams from my old notes.
