SERVICE: Google Cloud Print “real soon now”

Troubleshooting Google Cloud Print

Why is my document not printing?

Why can’t I print to my cloud printer from Chrome?

For now Google Cloud Print is only available in mobile devices such as smart phones and Chrome notebooks.

So after much ado about a FUTURE service!

I find out about it’ll work “real soon now”.

Great idea.

Just not useful … yet

ADMINISTRIVIA: Snowfall ends


I look out the window and it’s over.

Looks like I’ve got about 24 inches of “global warming” at my door.

Time to fire up the old snow blower and go clear it.

Luckily, having no life, I have no where to go today.

But, with my patient, keeping a clear path for help, is a priority.

Sigh, this too shall pass.

I hear we’re getting another snow storm on Saturday.

Oh joy!

I think I have enough gas for this one and maybe the next.

I remember one storm like this in both the 70’s and 80’s. Maybe this is that “event of the decade”.

Do a few data chores. Wait for the neighbors to wake up. And get to work.

FUN: Tongue in cheek?


Primary teachers need intensive math training, not Higher Level Math ability

*** begin quote ***

I just don’t see why someone who teaches children up to the age of 12 should be able to “Express μ and σ in terms of a” where “real numbers a, 2a, 3a, 4a and 5a have mean μ and standard deviation σ.”

*** end quote ***

Did you ever hear the mantra:

Those who can, do.
Those who can’t, teach.
Those who can’t teach, teach teaching.
Those who can’t teach teaching, go into politics.
Those who can’t succeed in politics, blog.


Ok, I made the last two lyrics up.

Anything on the topic of “teaching credentialing” that this fat old white guy injineer has read, has highlighted that this field doesn’t get the “best and brightest”.

So maybe insisting that “teachers” demonstrate some intellectual prowess or achievement is a way of getting the children exposed to excellence.

In a Karate Dojo, I’m told, the master usually instructs the beginners so that they get the best start possible.

If we could get the Gooferment out of “education”, maybe “the best and brightest” would be in “education”. How much would you pay for “an einstein” to teach you how to … write a blog?

ROFL, tongue in cheek, just about bloggers like us.

White House Backs Off of Obama Earmarks Pledge
Posted by Jim Harper

*** begin quote ***

In the state of the union speech last night, President Obama said with great force:

   “If a bill comes to my desk with earmarks inside, I will veto it.”

*** end quote ***

Wow, it this his version of: “read my lips; no new taxes” or “i did not have sex with that woman”?

Earmark is really easy.

Anything that doesn’t say “ALL AMERICANS” or “NO AMERICAN” is an earmark.

Some one should start a countdown clock!
