I was happy to hear that FSU did not need to cancel the first day of classes due to Hurricane Isaac. In fact, I rode to school and home today without getting rained on. There were a bunch of first years in my office when I arrived. We currently have an overcrowding problem in my office which I'm working on fixing. I just took it easy until class started. I was the least nervous I've been for a first day of class. Everything went smoothly in class except I realized that I have no idea how to proficiently use the Windows Media Player that comes on the classroom computer. Maybe I'll switch to VLC.
I get a really good vibe from my students. I had 22 people hand in an assignment today even though it's not due until a week from Friday. I only put one girl to sleep. I had lots of students introduce themselves after class and I'm going to need a few weeks to get names down. I figure it's best to wait until after drop/add is over. After class, I stayed and configured some of my electronics and all went well.
Back upstairs, I changed a few things in my syllabus due to a new scheduling conflict and students submitting error reports. I think I'm ready to roll for the entire semester except for making some homework assignments and writing the tests. I even had a former student drop by to pay me a visit between his classes.
Unrelated to teaching, I found a great remote desktop app that launches in a browser window. It's called SparkView(RDP) and is available in the Chrome WebStore. I came home and tried it out on my Chromebook and it works just as well as it did in my office! Now I basically have a fully functional once I get home. Good day.
