A straw poll of sorts today, first day back in school, suggested that about 60% of the kiddies got a pink or silver mini i-pod for Christmas. A number of them could not send an email before the Christmas break but they are now all about the torrents and the folders and the iTunes and differences between MP3s and AAC and the best firewall software. Scary stuff. To be encouraged.

For what its worth, I’m on day 4 of attempt number 659 to kick the fags
I also love SilkQuit, a free Quit Counter, which tells me that at this very moment, i have not smoked for three days, 16 hours, 4 minutes and 43 seconds; I have not smoked 44 cigarettes; I have saved €13.76; and my “life saved” (bitty iffy about this one) is 3 hours, 40 minutes.
What can I buy for €13.76??
A very cool project, even though I am still on my Christmas holidays: in late January, apparently, we will be setting up video conferencing between five Dublin schools http://www.global-leap.com/ and through this we will be running peer-to-peer teaching in things like web design, desk top publishing and programming. Sounds purdy cool.
Also, next September, about half the kiddies and all the staff get iBooks (except me ; I get a PowerBook next week ‘cos I’m special) and some Apple dudes are coming in over the summer to set up wireless access points in all of the classrooms and public areas.
