Last Week - High Schoolers

I need to catch up on a few items from my silly little life last week:

The high school girls’ project apparently went really well. They complained about our technology and talked about how they circumvented the limitations (including having me run out to buy a hub, bringing my Mac from home, and setting up some wacky FTP server that would only work after a very specific and long series of plugging and unplugging network cables).

That they were able to put together ANYTHING was a miracle… that they put together something pretty decent was an act of God.
