Don't Let Me Stop You

What the heck, you'll do what you want anyway.

Leaving Home

Posted by Dan Draney on August 27, 2005

We took Tycho off to college today. It’s a day of thoroughly mixed emotions. On the one side we are proud of what he has already achieved, and we know he’s going to do well in college. On the other, our “baby” is gone, and we don’t know when he’ll be back. He’s less than an hour away, but it seems farther.

On a lighter note, we have the computer checkin at the school. Before arrival each student was informed of the system requirements and instructed on removing viruses and spambots. They then drop off the computer with the campus IS group for checking, antivirus installation, network configuration (including wireless), etc. The students fill out a form, attach it to the computer, and are told to come back in 2 hrs.

Except when Tycho handed her his PowerBook, the IS person said, “Oh. It’s a Mac. You can just wait, if you want. This will only take 10 minutes.”
