Panama Rocks

Jeff and I went to Panama rocks today. What a cool trip. The place wasn't that big, but we spent about three hours climbing rocks and walking around. I slipped and whacked my hand pretty badly, but it still works.

type type type What an awesome summer this is turning out to be. Its been really hot but its nice to be able to go out and enjoy it after work.

My workspace mate and I are investing in a fish tank and some plants this week to make our windowless, air conditioned box more humane. She almost had a panic attack on Friday when she realized that she could be doing this for the rest of her life. haha

After watching almost 15 episodes of King of the Hill today, I think I finally warmed up to it. Slow day on FX I guess.

(e:mike) when are you gonna call me so we can chill?!

I wish I was a dog sometimes. Mine are pretty spoiled.

I have strep throat for the third time this year. Amoxicillin is my friend. On a good note I blew off work for the rest of the day, got my Nexus pass and bought some neato lights from Pier One.

After one of the suckiest days ever, I race out of work to the Apple store...only to find it closed until 6pm. Two hours later I go back and purchase my copy of Tiger.

Its really not that impressive. I think its cumbersome. Dashboard is a neat application but the widgets are not really what I was expecting. I wish I could customize them more than I am able to.

The address book is still lame and iPhoto is no longer included. ugh. I had to go back to my Panther disc and reinstall an older version of iPhoto.

Spotlight is neat as is Safari RSS but I really like firefox.

All Done

I finished Paul's recommendation letter for his application for a faculty position. Thank you for asking me Paul. I hope this helps.

Dear Dr. Irwin,

It is with pleasure and confidence that I submit a recommendation for Paul Visco. I have known Mr. Visco for three years. Two years of which I was a student at Canisius College studying under the Communication Department.

Paul is hands-down one of the most creative and insightful people I have the pleasure of knowing. I have watched since its inception, a virtual community created by Paul blossom from a small few member virtual discussion board into a fully interactive virtual community called

I believe speaks volumes of Paul's dedication, intuition, and creativity. He has a fundamental understanding of the philosophy and development of technology, particularly its effects on the human population (i.e. students).

As a professor, I noted Paul to be extremely patient. He has a thorough understanding of technology and its best utilization as a learning tool. As an instructor of DMA 201, Paul instilled in his students, including myself, the fundamental skill sets of the programs we were presented with. Walking into the class knowledgeable in most of the programs we were learning, I found Paul to easily cater to my more advanced learning pace while giving first time students time to explore and learn the programs at their own pace. Paul performs the delicate act of balancing learning speeds with ease and confidence.

Creativity is a valuable tool. Paul Visco has enough for two lifetimes. He has tirelessly invested his personal time in the development of A spectacular example of Paul's computer-imaging skills is a 3D interactive model Paul created a few years ago of the environment around his apartment on Elmwood Ave. This 3D model allowed the user to navigate around a virtual makeup of Paul's immediate neighborhood and living quarters. It is one of the most fascinating things I have seen.

As long as I've known Paul, he has never been complacent. He is continually experimenting with technology, teaching himself new things and always pushing the envelope.

Paul Visco is a superior match for your position. Canisius College has strived to bring its students the most intelligent and creative faculty to influence them and help them become the leaders of tomorrow. Paul's skills and teaching abilities have been proven through his employment at Canisius for the past five years. I believe him to be a superior instructor and friend and strongly support an evaluation of his work for this position.
