  • 23 Hours of PASS ++

    As I reviewed the sessions by our pre/post-con speakers who also participated in the 24 Hours of PASS event, I was disturbed that the single session with the MOST attendees during the event had no audio (no one can hear you scream in cyber-space).  Immediately, I conferred with Pual and Louis.  We decided that a ''redo'' was the best ...

  • Best Thing that I learned at PASS

    I remember my first PASS Summit in Denver in January 2002 (Delayed from Sep 2001 in Orlando due to Sep 11).  One of the last sessions that I attended was led by Fabian Pascal.  He runs a website called and is rather entertaining at times.  At the time that I attended the Summit, I was teaching at High Point ...

  • OT: Wi-Fi in the Sky

    For the first time in my travel history, I was on a flight on Thursday night that offered Wi-Fi server (after reaching 10,000 feet).  I was on a rather short flight from ATL to GSO, but thought that I would give it a shot.  There are some sites that you can check out without paying a fee like your travel plans at and some basic ...

  • OT: March Madness

    Every year, I look over the 65 teams for the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament and guess who is going to win.  I am not as much into the game as I have been in past years, but there are always teams that I root for and others that I root against.  There always seems to be a ''cinderella'' that makes a big splash each year.  The trick ...
