What's the frequency, Kenneth?

Need advice on recording my lectures. I use presentation software and I move around the lecture hall/room interacting with students. I want to record audio directly to my computer while moving around a classroom. What equipment and software do I need to do this? I am open to all suggestions.

That time of the semester...

It's time to register for classes again. It is a pain trying to fill in all the time gaps in between classes, or to get them close enough together so I don't waste hours waiting for the next class to start. Is there a calculator out there where you could give them a list of possible classes in each subject so it could formulate the best schedule for me? [more inside]

Itzamna said I didn't have to do my homework

A colleague's girlfriend, who teaches in an 11-18 school, recently had one of her pupils stop doing work because of an (apparently) strongly-held belief that the world is coming to an end in 2012 with the finish of the Mayan calendar. I've seen a couple of anecdotal tweets about this occurring elsewhere too. I guess Rapture fever might be a more common occurrence in parts of the US, but this was in leafy west London. So, teachers of the green, is this a Thing?

I was asked to leave my masters program, but given a written assurance that I could reapply to the program. Now, four years later, I'd like to approach them about coming back, but I have no idea how to do so--and of course there are major complicating issues involved that are entirely my fault.

Wait, you knew the whole time and didn't tell us?!

I go to a California community college that writes course descriptions for every class it offers, but it doesn't display them on the actual class schedule. The college has an obscure web application (which I just found) that will give you the description if you enter in the course number, but it's barely advertised (it took me three semesters to find it). How do I go about getting the (much needed) course descriptions displayed with the class schedule? Is this an issue I need to join the ASB to get publicised? Is there another way to go about this? I want to make a stink, because for a year and a half now I've been dealing with inadequate or often nonexistent class descriptions which have made choosing the appropriate classes a challenge.

Mass transit.

I'm spending nearly $400/month on automotive-related expenses for a car I don't enjoy driving. That's about 25% of my monthly income, and when it really comes down to it, I think I'd rather be saving that money for something better, like travel. Or education. Or Scotch. Lots and lots of Scotch. [more inside]
