Single Sing-on

When I was working at the University years ago, Computer Services sent out a mailing to all University staff to promote the new single sign-on system that they were instituting. I’m sure they ran their postcard mailer text through spell-check, but it had a pretty obvious typo on it. One that wasn’t picked up by […]

Out of office autoresponders

Like a lot of people, I do a lot of thinking in the shower. I mentally map out my day, think about what I need to do, and I often think about blog topics. Of course by the time I’m done, dressed, and moving on to my day I’ve forgotten or don’t have time for […]
