Another Week Gone By

So, another week has gone by class and work, not much else. My classes last week were fine, another marathon session in colonial Louisiana history. After the class was about half over I didn’t have the will power to keep taking notes. Tuesday’s foreign policy class was considerably less draining.The new computer speakers and sound card I ordered arrived this week. I got the Logitech Z-5300e 5.1 speakers and a Creative X-Fi XtremeGamer card. This combination and a little tweaking produce a very impressive sound. One complaint about my speaker set is the bass is too boomy out of the box, which I would not disagree with. However, setting the bass redirection to the THX recommended 80hz seems to help a great deal. I’m still trying to decide if the sound is entirely satisfactory.Today, Monday, I went to work with dad for about 11 this morning. We were at the Mid City office briefly and then left for Metairie. I really didn’t have much of anything to do today and was unoccupied almost all afternoon. I had a rather nasty losing streak in freecell.This evening’s IT ethics class was much like the last, divided by discussion of three ‘case studies’ from the book and the lecture, which mostly consists of the instructor reading off long-winded powerpoint slides. One of the case studies was mine but it was a rather simple issue, although we discussed it longer than I expected we would.Class was dismissed at about eight. I caught the 8:20 shuttle and waited for Dad downtown at the Sheraton. Later this evening I watched last Sunday’s episode of Rome, which I only missed because I forgot about it.
