Week 16: BSOD
If you're wondering what The Impossible Goal is, you can read about it here.
The bad: main realtime laptop bluescreening on the first class of the first day of the semester. (Actually more like grayscreening, but you know what I mean)
The good: I have a netbook loaded w/CAT software as backup for just this scenario.
The awesome: Every paycheck, I normally put a couple bucks in the piggy bank for equipment upgrades and purchase, so I got a brand new laptop!!!
So with that bumpy start to the semester, this week's update: I'm estimating my consistent Q&A speed is somewhere around 300-320 right now, although I've had a couple spurts where I've nearly hit 350, and once the state contests are done with I'm going to concentrate fully on Q&A practice until the record attempt.
I hope to see some of you at the Illinois Court Reporters Association's annual convention this weekend in Springfield, IL.
