That thing could use couplers.

I wonder how fast you could get it going on the flats.

Making the turnaround in a TT on a tandem was sketchy enough.

Just did my first 40k TT. My legs have never cramped so bad as they did after the race.

I'm getting antsy to hear from my girlfriend. I got an email from her on the way to the show on saturday with the subject 'look at my new car' featuring a picture of her car upside down and with the front smashed in. She said she was fine, but doesn't have cell signal at her parent's place so I haven't heard from her.

I know that she's okay (and I'm so glad that she is), but it just makes me nervous.

Drive safely everyone...

Great job. I'm sure that will always be a special memory for your kid.

As for the turn around, we've done several TT's on the tandem, and have yet to make a half way smooth turn.

Just got another clue that I am OLD. The classroom/auditorium where I'm scheduled to teach has neither a blackboard nor a dry erase board.

I don't even know what that is. Perhaps a laptop with a swivel top?

Toshiba tablet PC. It has a swivel top and you can write on it with a stylus.

Motion at the front of the classroom helps keep students' attention focused on you and the lecture. Chalk is one of those things that allow you to move all over the front of the room without it seeming contrived. +1 for chalk. Low light and static screens can make for inattention. The electronic availability of lecture materials might also encourage spotty attendance.

+1

Also it is much easier to change things on the fly. Being able to adjust based on questions and answers to questions posed is very important and hard to do with a "powerpoint" type of presentation.

Purdue used a never ending onslaught of overhead projectors. Even in the lecture halls that were tech'd out to the max.....overhead projectors. I remember an old lecture hall in the Math building that had 3 or 4 rows of double or triple chalk boards. the lecturer could pull strings and jockey the position of the boards - moving them up and allowing students to see them and copy them while they were writing on another board......always felt like we should speak with British accents while in that room for some reason.

Back in the "old" days, we wrote with a grease pencil or marker onto a roller of that clear plastic sheet material which was attached to an overhead machine.

I tend to prefer powerpoint/slides at the end of a class session when providing a wrap-up. However, during the session, I prefer to use a black/white board with a writing instrument.
