well i think it was alumni andi that made the comment about how the wireless that the counselors get to use is part of the USSRC's and Space Camps business environment... so it makes a lot of sence for facebook, youtube, myspace and other forum type sites to be blocked..... keeps the employees *even the counselors* from spending their work time on these sites... and keeps nasty little cyber worms and other bugs associated with those kind of sites out of their server....

just a thought... you could always just type the blog up in word or something and either email it to someone to post or whatever. i know it'll be a pain in the butt but at least people can read it!

Any word if Blogger is blocked? What about if someone were to set up a Wordpress somewhere, perhaps here, for that purpose?

Facebook is most definitely available from the wireless in the cafe.

What cafe are you all talking about? I'm not aware of any cafe...

In replacement for a blog, I almost think we should just have a thread where any of us here can post and everyone else can just post in-thread. Sound good?

You know, the large place with lots of tables and chairs (or stools) where people eat? 8)

Huh... cafeteria has wireless? That's new to me, no one actually mentioned that before. Never seen a cafeteria abbreviated as cafe before, either... usually cafe means café... but nonetheless, good to know.

Secret even to counselors? Wow, that's quite secret! Come on, PM it to me or something!

So, here's my attempt to summarize up the first week.

I arrived late, on Monday, and was escorted over to Hab 3 at the lake to my room. I was then told, at about 8:10 PM, that I could not begin training without my current hairstyle, so I had to jump into a car and RUSH to Madison Square mall to get my hair cut at Regis (Master Cuts was already closing when I got there). I said bye-bye to my hair and headed back to AC and unpacked. I had missed all the processing and paperwork fun and a few briefings.

Tuesday, Ruth sent those of us who had arrived the day before over to HR to do our paperwork. Woo. I missed another briefing, but it was Survival I, so it was easy enough to study to make up (just the good ole SURVIVAL acronym and whatnot). We had a bunch of briefings, and fun stuff.

I'll pick up on Wednesday later.
