Still gettin' my keister kicked at work

Haven't had as much time to devote to school this week as work has pretty well put me out of commission along with some weird creeping crud, Halloween with grandkids (5 boys and their two moms) invading our little piece of paradise putting Tuesday evening totally out of reach for accomplishing anything worthwhile. Been catchin' up on sleep lately it seems as I've been goin' to bed earlier, except tonite, just so I can get to work in the morn. Got a garage roof that's got to be replaced. Started it today after work and will have it accomplished tomorrow plus play two short musical gigs. So, I'm lookin' forward to Sunday and gettin' caught up with class work. Though I have done some things like try to get this posted to my blog, beef up my Netvibes portal...it's good to know that y'all can see some of my portal as I wasn't sure how that was gonna work. I've found out that tabs can be shared with Dr. West or anyone else only one tab at a time. Universes, which is the equivalent of what we've created on Netvibes...our own personal internet universe...can't be shared yet as Netvibes hasn't allowed it for whatever reason...maybe they've not perfected that concept yet. At least I'm gettin' something done and work at my day job has let up enough that I think next week won't be so much of a brain drain.

Hey Joe, In another class I am taking some of the literature about online education says that to have an effective class there needs to be good communication between the instructor and the class and between the class itself. I read your reply to Mariann about pasting and sending the tabs to Dr.West and was able to get my 'portal' assignment done on time. THANKS!!

You're welcome, Kris. There's so much to learn, I'm thinking part of Dr. West's strategy for the portal assignment was for us to learn as much as we can about Netvibes by messing, digging around and exploring it and its capabilities.

I'm probably spendin' way too much time with it. NAAAAH!!! It's just fun messin' around with the customize features of it.
