02.02.17 Categories

We assigned categories today. Derrek and I have the same category. I asked for his E-mail, which he gave me, but he seemed hesitant. It was weird. We will go over how to format everything during the next class.

 

02.16.17 Blog Format

My computer died and I didn’t get it all written down but I think I can manage the formatting. I will do a bunch of entries over spring break.

 

03.19.17 I didn’t Do it

Well, I did not do it. I said I would post over Spring Break and I did not. I have some things to post. I just have not done it yet. Soon…

 

03.29.17 Posting!

I did not do what I was supposed to do but I am doing it now. I posted the first post. It took a LONG time. The formatting was a pain in the ass. I converted a PDF but it still had a lot of errors because it was in double columns and had to be made into a single. When I post, I used the div attributes Owen gave us but it still posted the whole thing on one page. I didn’t see anything in the settings that would divide the post. I am hoping it will change when it is not a new post.

I am going to consider this equivalent to 15 posts. There are a couple of very long ones so I think that is fair. I am still posting sources I have already found. I have not had to search anything new yet, but I will. I will add all my research for my paper on Rokeby as well as a decent selection of research specifically for this project. Hopefully I can get this finished by the end of the weekend. I may be busy now, but I am likely to be busier later.

 

03.30.17 More Posts

I E mailed Owen to ask why my posts don’t overflow correctly. I am determined to get this project done ahead of time. It isn’t that I mind doing it. I will just feel better if I knew I have done all the required stuff. Then if I get busy it will be ok. If I don’t, I will keep posting. I am posting a couple of things that are a bit off topic but that I really liked. I don’t think it will hurt. Today I am going to start adding new research.
