While I was in Montana, there was a total lunar eclipse. I went out the to hotel parking lot with my tripod, camera, and 500mm lens and took a few pictures. The moon (especialy with that zoom level and resolution) can be tricky. In even a few second exposure you get motion blur, the relative motion is just so quick. Click the picture to see a few more.
So last week I flew out to Bozeman, MT. You may ask ‘what’s in Bozeman, MT?’. Well the answer is not a ton, but it’s a nice little city.
They currently use WebCT, but are in the process of selecting a new contract. That includes putting out a RFP for other vendors, as well as reviewing Moodle independently. My time there consisted of some general meetings about Moodle, and Oakland’s rational behind Moodle. The majority of my time though was a series of technical meetings with the folks that handle Banner. Overall I think we came up with lots of good ideas, and I think I put the techie folks at east about the possibility of selecting Moodle. They are finishing up the RFP process and user tests in the next few weeks, so I’m curious to see what way they head.
The travel itself was nice. I ended up in exit rows on all my flights, which is wonderful (more leg room then first class). Bozeman itself is in valley surrounded by the Rockies, so on they way out they had to circle around the valley a few times to gain altitude.
I also got some pictures of the eclipse, I’ll post those shortly.
