Decisions, decisions...

I'm about done with my bachelors at Park. Whee! Now, what to do next?

Park requires me to take Econ 101 and 102 before I can apply for the MBA program. WTF? Stupid requirements. So, that leads me to look elsewhere.

KU has an evening professional degree program, just down the road, too! But, what to take?

The classic MBA? Moo.

Or something actually fun
? Take a look at the course descriptions. Sounds like what I read for fun. . . (security risks, encryption and cryptography, viruses, firewalls, viruses, worm attack, Trojan horses, password security, secure multicast ) and stuff I've been wanting to learn for a while now (design and analysis of approximation algorithms; lower bound theory; polynomial transformation and the theory of NP-completeness...)

Maybe I'll do the fun one first, then if I'm still in the mood (MOO) for crap, I'll do the MBA. I can apply either or both to what I do at Sprint . . . (and have them pay for it too...)

Besides, the MS in IS is only 24 hours and a thesis. You mean I *have* to write about computers. Shucks. :-)

podcasting from Joomla

mini-Tutorial for LeBlanc's Podcast Suite v1.1: "a number of folks (besides me!) have been interested in podcasting from Joomla sites and have had some trouble getting started, so I thought I'd try to do a little tutorial on LeBlanc's podcast component"

I wonder if this works any better - I'm 6 hours deep in the code right now trying to make the default install work for simple podcasting at
