Fantastic! Mr. Duez, I really want to thank you for having this blog. It's been priceless and I've never had a teacher who has done something even remotely as amazing as this! It's a brilliant way to organize everything and is a very very useful resource! Thank you so much!!

Also, this comment may seem a bit untimely, but I have literally read through this everyday. I think a few times, I've even read your AVID blog. Just fabulous! :)

Thanks Nazim. Much appreciated. It was a bit of a pain to get going and get used to at first, but now I am really into a flow with it. I can't imagine not using it.

Everything I have been doing this year has been 'cloud computing' where I am storing things on the Internet. It really is the only way to fly. :)
