Summer Conference Season

It’s summertime.  Lower census on campus and in town.  And it’s conference season.  Sakai conference is coming up very soon, followed by the Blackboard conference(s).  So many sound so interesting.  And some very interesting acquaintances will be attending some of them.  But our university budget is tight and my personal budget is even tighter with a low ceiling (and no votes to raise that ceiling), so I’ll be here checking into disaster recovery, how to tweak some SQL to get the data I want out of our webct database, and identifying what service packs and/or hotfixes to apply to our test and production system in August before Fall classes start.
