Members of the Cat Welfare Society’s committee are blogging at catwelfaresg.wordpress.com – “the Unofficial Cat Welfare Society Diary.” Like Dawn’s before, “it is entirely personal, and does not reflect the opinions of the society.”
So we will continue to get to peek into their thoughts and experiences and readers will offer up support and suggestions as they have before.
In a recent post, Sarah says,
“As usual, we don’t know how Dawn managed it.
Ah well, the best way to get it done is to get started. “
Ah, brave heart.
I bought a couple of mini DVI to VGA adaptors that MacBooks need for the laboratory projectors. Some student groups with MacBooks in my Animal Behaviour class turned up all eager to project their presentations but learnt that they needed an adaptor for the MacBooks. These are not issued with MacBooks but only with MacBook Pros.
The MacBook Pro adaptors are not mini-DVI so one group had to use my MacBookPro – I quickly setup a new user account as Yezdi suggested at the last meetup. Unfortunately the other group was presenting at almost the same time so when i went over, I found out they had opted to export their presentation to powerpoint for use on the lab pc.
Sacrilegious and all, so I bought two adaptors just now at lunch when I popped in to the pc co-op at YIH. Staff price was $36.10 a piece. Should have ordered from Apple Store instead ($32), rats.
Now to keep it in a safe place.
Some of us Pedal Ubin guides enjoyed a day of just pedalling last Saturday. We rode Changi to ECP and back on a very hot and sunny morning.
Cheng Puay blogged about his miserable crash which saw him crashing into a railing. Joelle crashed with a nine-year old kid at ECP the way to the ride. Apparently he made a sudden right turn that took her out. But smiles all around in both cases. We have had several years free of accidents on Ubin so it seems we are less careful when on our own. Well, at least we got to use the first aid kit. And come Brave Soldier.
The heat got to me – I only drank 3L+ so I bailed on the Sunday ride. Some bits of the the bike are making scrunchy noises so I think I did not completely clear gunk out of the hub despite my best efforts after the last ride. Time for servicing by a pro. Since we rode from HV (met Adrian at Pasir Ris) we clocked dst 63km, Tms 3:34:50, Avs 16.9km/h, Mxs 49.5km/h.
