As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

More Internet Woes

Well, I decided that I was going to bite the bullet and pay the $10/day for Internet access (this relevation came to me after I checked my e-mail at one of the six AECT Internet stations and found 300+ messages there). So, I go to the front desk, only to find that the Internet is not available anywhere at the All Star Sports Resort, only at the Coronado Springs. So, I could pay $10/day to use the Internet in common areas at a hotel that I'm not even staying at.

This entry has been cross-posed in both my blog area at the Overlay and my academic blog (i.e., Breaking into the Academy).
