sporting the new hairdo

Since I’m still fighting a battle with Lymphoma (a white blood cell cancer like leukemia), I changed my hairstyle. Since your hair falling out might be a real drag, I decided I’d have a little fun with it and shave a mohawk with arrowheads at both ends into my head. My students think its a great addition to the classroom experience, and its vaguely rockin’.

To commemorate the experience, I have created this self-portrait. Hope you all enjoy.

Fantastic Web Hosting! , ,

Let’s face it, everyone loves their hosting. If you don’t, sounds like its time to switch things up. My hosting solution began with who was summarily bought out by and now resides in – The Small Business Authority.

These guys are simply fantastic! They have fast chat support, as well as tech support where you can actually speak with a human in less than 3 minutes of wait time. That is simply unheard of from previous hosting providers I’ve dealt with. But the thing that really makes me pleased, is how well their support works with you.

In the past, they’ve clued me in to better plans, cheaper versions of my current plans, and easy walkthroughs on how to solve issues with my files.
