Leaving for Clarion 6 am tomorrow, if all goes well. Next post from East Lansing. Net access is unclear. The sorority house where we'll be staying has wifi, but it may be turned off for the summer; there has been a suggestion we will have to be on modems. Eh. Even in that case, I can't complain too much: fewer distractions.
For those who read this lj for the kanji, this is probably the last of the kanji for six weeks. I had thought of continuing them through Clarion (they only take a few minutes a day), but the laptop I'm taking has WinMe installed, and the version of MS Paint that runs on WinMe doesn't understand any kanji export format from JWPce that I can discover. Definitely not Unicode. No, I can't make the Gimp work either. No, I don't want to install a new OS. WinMe has a bad reputation, but on this particular hardware, it has been very stable, and I don't want to mess with it.
Kanji will be back around July 20.
