I though Easter was a bit early this year, but I didn’t realize it was this early. From Rob Bushway’s blog:
Easter is very early this year, and here is a little explanation as to why.
Easter is always the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox (which is March 20).
Based on the above, Easter can actually be one day earlier (March 22) than it will be this year, but that is rare.
This year is the earliest Easter any of us will see for the rest of our lives. And only the most elderly (95 years and above) have ever seen it this early.
There’s a couple more tidbits on Rob’s blog about Easter that you might find interesting. Check ’em out.
Easter also reminds me of this little bit from Robin Williams’ Live on Broadway (which is hilarious, by the way, and has brought me much joy and laughter over the years):
For me, the one big question is: how do you get Crucifixion, Resurrection and then chocolate bunnies, colored eggs? How do you do that one? Even kids are going: “Rabbits don’t lay eggs. What is this?” And you don’t want a kid biting the head off a chocolate Jesus. You don’t want a cream filled cross going… You don’t wanna put raspberry jam in the grass going: “We’re looking for Jesus, kids, come on!”
It’s up! Check it out: GottaBeAStudent and The Myth of Battery Life. Also a special thanks to Mom and Dad for A) proof reading it, and B) providing me with a title.
Starting later today, I’ll be doing a series of articles on GottaBeMobile.com that deals with tablet issues from a student perspective. We’ll, at least from my perspective (if you know me, you know that I can bring a unique perspective to anything).
GottaBeMobile is the site for Tablet PC information, so it’s a pretty big honor to write for them.
I also need to take a moment to point out the incredible irony that finds me, an engineer, writing in a situation like this. One of the reasons I went to Mines was to get away from all the writing that high school and humanities classes had. Yet, I find my self blogging several times a week on my personal site and writing articles for two outside sites.
In any event, it’s going to be more of an article based series, rather than the short and informative posting I do like to do at StudentTabletPC.com. However, I think many will find them just as helpful.
I’ll post again when I put up the first article later today.
I’d also like to thank Rob for giving me (and STPC) a chance to expand my (our) audience and Tracy for letting me get away with it 😉 . Rob was also very helpful and kind in helping me make the decision to contribute to GBM, including helping me with a list of topics.
