2008 Resolutions (the boring work-related ones)

It's traditional at this time of year to tell everyone what we resolve either to do or not to do, presumably on the grounds that there will then be the big incentive of avoiding embarrassment of not sticking to them!

Here are mine.

1 Not to swear loudly in class when there is a huge delay for students opening Office files while applications are being 'installed' every day

2 Not to attach any documents to e-mail unless that really is the only way to share them

3 Not to feel guilty about using interactive whiteboards as little more than projector screens

4 Back up files to another drive a lot more often than when I just happen to remember and put things I'm likely to want to refer to on-line too

5 Change all my passwords to something I can remember but others won't guess

6 Just use one e-mail account for work and one for personal stuff

7 Delete any file I didn't use at all last year unless there's a really good reason not to.

8 Delete all my 2007 and older work e-mail other than contact details, contracts or really vital stuff

9 Get a decent skin for Moodle that doesn't stretch and look silly on widescreen and that isn't full of bugs that confuse new users

10 Write at least as many cheerful and positive articles as ones that moan about something.
