Day 5 (SAOUG Blog Course, Part 5)

9am, 17th Feb 2006. University of Stellenbosch, Cape Town, South Africa. Waiting for the class to start.

The connectivity is excellent. Took this picture, which I'm going to use to show them, and how it could be applied as a teaching tool.

    interesting! Take more photos of S.Africa! :) (Outside classroom I mean!)

  2. Hi, good to know that everything is ok down there. Free drop by here to tell my friends what you know about the USIS library.

    Now I need to learn some more sophisticated tricks ... like how to insert a hypertext link!

    Getting a blog site up and running for SAOUG is going to be much more of an onerous task, as I need to consult - so far, no word from my exec committee on this!

    However, just a BIG thank you from SAOUG for all the effort you put into this trip and for your enthusiastic training.

  4. Glad to know that things are going swimmingly at South Africa. You know Ivan, you really really do need to go out and enjoy the magnificent (so I heard) landscapes, wildlife, and country. Please also check out Sun City and submit a report to the government to tell them what its like... ha..

    You know, the true test of a blogger is the ability to blog anywhere, anytime under any conditions. I think you have qualified yourself as one Ivan.
