Long meeting looking at the implications and possibilities of moving some of the DHSI organization work over to HCMC. This will eventually result in a proposal for the committee, but in the meantime the urgent requirement is to evaluate regonline and its competitors, and produce a possible plan for forking the website into an information-only site at UVic, and a registration/financial management/user management component hosted externally. We must have a clear plan for this, agreed on by all of us, before my vacation.
Variety of stuff: expenses claim, timesheets for RAs, arranging/discussing classroom workshops for next semester, etc.

I had a lot of outstanding tasks in the blog which were actually completed, or were simple, or were superceded by subsequent changes. I've been going through those, and I'm now down to only three outstanding tasks (in the blog -- lots not in the blog, of course).
Inordinate quantities of admin-related emails and tasks today, covering: stats for web.uvic.ca sites; HCMC participation in DHSI organization; printing of the Calico volume; FAST access; an IDG application; IALLT Journal domain name resolution; Cascade; and other stuff. Just posting the time that's getting eaten up by this kind of thing, which seems to be growing.
Had to walk them over to HRIS -- getting a bit close to the deadline.
Course updates for Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 entered on Religious Studies
Email sent to SA in RS advising website updated.
This is the general blog for administrative tasks, meetings, discussions, paperwork and all that horrible stuff.
