And I learned that the white bullets next to the tags (in tag management) fill up with blue like thermometers as you increase the number of entries tagged with that tag. It seems to hit full ~30, however, which confuses me.
I really dislike the way the entries seem to all blur together on the S1 tags page and wish there was a way I could design an S2 layout just for the tags display. (I'm not really keen to recreate my current layout in S2.)
I do really like the rename feature. An improvement over the Memories feature wherein you have to manually retag every single entry if you want to change a label. Love especially 'cause I keep tweaking my system, and the rename function makes that so easy and painless. Though sadly, it doesn't redirect if you URL to a no-longer-existing tag.
Plus it displays the entries in order of posting, which I wish Memories did (as opposed to "order in which the entries were added, and by added we also mean edited" -- though I suppose it's easier since it's just within your own journal rather than a multiplicity of journals.)
[P.S. ♥ that Semagic breaks your tags down by first letter, so your main menu isn't so unwieldy.]
It was nice today. Much less windy than yesterday. And yeah, I honestly liked the cold. *is freak; knows and revels in it*
Nancy was back. Her daughters (Nicole, age 4 and 26 pounds; and Michelle, age 9) learned how to downhill ski in 6 hours one day over the vacation last week.
Nancy's giving the NOM talk next Wednesday afternoon, so Eric and I have been enlisted to possibly babysit Nicole. I made a crack about giving Eric an impressionable young child and he said that's why she was asking when we were both there. He is so excited about this, though; talking about getting coloring books and everything. Tres cute. Alyssa's gonna be babysitting that day, too, but in the morning (one of Max's doc students is presenting her dissertation, I think).

I thought about going to
Tue., Feb. 28-"When There Are No Good Choices: Lyndon Johnson and the Vietnam/Great Society Connection." (American Academy of Arts and Sciences) Francis M. Bator, emeritus, KSG. Introduction by Ernest R. May, Harvard University. The House of the Academy, 5:15 p.m. Reception to follow.but really I just wanted to go home. So I did.
trijinx called me from a concert to inform me that the New Pornographers' YAMAHA keyboard still says YAAA :D
I never did talk about Monday's new staff orientation. It included a 4-segment video (The Harvard Legend, You Made A Great Decision, An Insider's Tour, The Harvard Culture). Yeah, good times.
In FY04 they hired 2,274 people, out of 119,279 -- a 2% acceptance rate, far less than the college itself. It occurred to me later to wonder if this included faculty hiring 'cause obviously they're gonna have a bajillion faculty apps. I'm assuming they meant staff, though.
No real amusing anecdotes to speak of.
