New webmaster of the CSCU

Last week the Computer Science Course Union had a BBQ, and was supposed to hold their elections. Unfortunately, since noone was nominated for positions, that didn't happen. ;-) So I think the majority of the old board basically continued on, but a bunch of positions were vacant, as I learned.

One of those positions was the webmaster position. I wanted to be involved in the Course Union but forgot to nominate myself, thankfully I was told I could be involved if I went to the next meeting.

We had the meeting this afternoon, and I've been recommended to fill the webmaster post. :-) I think that's all there is to it, so unless I'm mistaken, I'm now the webmaster of the CSCU.

I'm really excited about this, I want to be involved, and considering my background, this seemed like an obvious way for me to participate without obligating myself to more than I can handle right now.

I've had a crash course in the way the current site is put together, it looks pretty easy to deal with, and since the site is apparently in a "maintenance mode" at the moment, my duties should be fairly minimal for the timebeing. Eventually I would like to document the current implementation, since it seems there are only a couple of people that know how it works right now.

In other news, I have a Calculus midterm on Wednesday morning, and I'll be studying/practicing until my fingers bleed (or Wednesday morning comes around, whichever happens first).

The solutions to my first Math assignment were posted recently, I found out I made several mistakes on the assignment. I knew I didn't get 100% shortly after I handed it in because I realized I hadn't corrected a simple error I had found earlier before handing it in, but I made several other mistakes too. Still, I got the majority of the questions right so that's good.

Yesterday I played squash for the first time this season. This is the first time I haven't had to pay to get in, because I have access to the facilities with my student card. My bad knee is really stiff today, which worries me a little, but since it was the first time, maybe I shouldn't be surprised about that.

Oh, one other thing. This PC lab I'm typing this in is WAY hotter than the Mac lab next door (which has a class in session right now). PCs are good heaters.
