Review Week

Posted on November 27, 2023

Week 10 in the College of Design is “Review Week,” when the design students demonstrate their skills to professors and professionals. One of my jobs is to run the print shop along with a fantastic group of student employees. Below are a couple of photos from events of the week, so far (the week has just begun, mind you). All in all it’s a busy time and a fun week and the posters printed are usually fun to see. The old HP z6100 jammed up on us last night. It was ugly as can be seen above. The HP z6100 printing as expected. 8 ink colors, 8 print heads, 24″ 20 lb. plotter bond paper. Good stuff.

Nora shows up regularly when I go to unlock my phone as well as nature photos. It’s a neat feature that brings me a smile everytime.

Summer Fade . . .

It was a good couple of days as the final days of heat ended and the fall storms rolled in off the Pacific. I am moss, lichen, salmon, grey clouds, wool, flannel, plaid and waxed canvas. I look forward to this change so much each year and it rarely disappoints. The meet was run on a golf course out in Springfield, just east of Eugene. It was a beautiful day with several colleges and universities represented. The men run an 8k race and the women run a 6k race. It’s all anaerobic in the end. Impressive.…

A couple from the past couple of days. Sunny days punctuated with / by activity. The green tunnel on Pre’s Trail (named after the iconic runner, Steve Prefontaine). This is on my usual route on my noon runs and this time of year provides welcome shade on warmer days. I met one of, if not the, main writer for New Gen Track and Field recently while on a break on campus. Matt is a nice fella, a runner (he ran in the USATF Championships on Thursday evening in the 1500 meter prelims) and publishes this magazine. Friday night the group was hosting a party at the “Hoka House,” so I went, mainly to get a magazine as they were giving out this issue for…
