Sketchbook of Hans von Aachen, before 1625
Daily Thoughts 09/19/2012

I read a little bit more of Madrigal's Magic Keys to Spanish.  I finished Chapter 29.  I am getting past what I had learned previously in high school, so I might be going a little slower.  I also read some more of Abundance.  The authors are writing about education.  The one laptop per child initiative is praised.

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.  I also did my daily check on e-mail reference.  I also spent some time looking at the monthly website statistics and the purchase alerts list for items that are on hold.

I am thinking a little bit about programming.  Programming Librarian has a calendar of events.

I have the latest New York Times Book Reivew and Publishers Weekly to read.

The computer lab is open from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. today.

I took a bunch of lessons on HTML and CSS and started on Javascript at Codecademy.  I really have to get back to this.  I ams surprised this made it into Library Journal online.
