Day 19,865

Hey! How y’all doin’?

I’m wrapping up my workday. I have a couple of students taking my Skype for Business class, and we’re closing out the day with a lab on setting up conferencing policies that manage the amount of bandwidth that can be made available in a particular conference.

I know it doesn’t sound very exciting, but I’ve been fascinated with computers and what they can do since I was a teenager.

These days I focus on a lot of the Microsoft products that facilitate communication, email systems (Microsoft Exchange) and real-time communication and conferencing (Skype for Business).

At least now if you ever have to give a report on what one of your grandparents did as a career, you’ve got that.

Your grandmother’s career is far more interesting. She invents stuff.

I think we both succeed in making the world a better place though. I teach people how to get the most out of new implementations of technology, and she teaches the engineers of tomorrow.

All in all, I think it’s worked out pretty well for all of us.

About time for me to pack up and head home, though. We’re supposed to get a flurry or two this afternoon, but from the looks of the weather radar, the storm is going to miss us, sliding to the north.

KU has a home game tonight, so that means traffic will be a little heavier for me heading out the door.

I hope you are happy and healthy.

Peace y’all.
