Weekend in review

So it seems the way I do my weekends in review is via bullets....

  • Saw The Matrix. Highly disappointing. I expected a lot more than what I got in return!

  • While at the Matrix the following occurred:
    Two people next to me passed out and either puked outside or on themselves in the theatre. It was gross.
    Someone had a push to talk conversation in the middle of the movie which led to many "shut the fuck up" jeers and almost led to a riot.
    Interactive movie. People shouted at the screen especially during the torturous Trinity death scene.
    Finally the people by us started smoking up. Ok, so I know I should expect anything in NYC but when you can't even smoke cigarettes indoors... amusing to say the least.

  • Saturday I watched PSU suck. And man do I mean suck. They got whooped by Northwestern. Thuis led to an extreme workout at the gym. I probably could have gone another hour on adrenaline at least! Up to 5.7 miles on the treadmill...

  • Made chili in the crockpot. Definitely needs more spicyness to it next time

  • Maggie came to visit me! She finally met my roommate and we went to dinner at a really delicious Italian place. Good family style stuff...best pizza i've had in the city so far.


  • I'm all packed for Harrisburg. I won't be available via Internet/Email until Sunday so the best bet is to use that telephone thing. I'll be taking a cabling seminar. I'm actually looking forward to getting away for a few days. I think the space from this island will help me regroup. As you can tell from the prior entry I need some reprieve. I'll also get a lot of studying done. yippee...

    Here's the itinerary:

    Information Gathering & Design Analysis
    • Identify how and where to gather information and obtain customer expectations, and how to analyze the data.
    • Describe the impact that customer expectations may have upon architectural and media selection decisions.

    Telecommunications Infrastructure
    • List and describe the purpose of the standards organizations
    • Describe the elements of the cabling system and how they fit into the overall design plan.

    Placement of Spaces
    • Describe the requirements and guidelines for the placement of spaces, including outlets, telecommunications closets, and equipment rooms.
    • Determine the placement of the elements on a typical floorplan blueprint.

    Horizontal Cabling & Pathways
    • Review the parameters, specifications and design guidelines for the Horizontal cabling system, including:

    • Topology
    • Media requirements
    • Connector requirements
    • Outlet and closet connectivity
    • Cabling distances
    • Installation/cabling practices
    • Horizontal pathways



    • Provide a horizontal cabling solution to an actual design project.


    Backbone Cabling & Pathways
    • Review the parameters, specifications and design guidelines for the Backbone cabling system, including:

    • Topology
    • Media requirements
    • Connector requirements
    • Cabling distances
    • Intrabuilding pathways and connectivity
    • Interbuilding pathways and connectivity



    • Provide an intrabuilding and interbuilding backbone cabling solution to an actual design project.

    Administration and Grounding & Bonding
    • Describe the basic principles of administration and the grounding and bonding of telecommunications cabling systems.
    • Apply these principles to the previous actual design solution.

    Centralized Cabling Architecture
    • Describe the implementation, advantages, and requirements of a centralized optical fiber cabling implementation according to the standards.
    • Provide a centralized optical fiber cabling solution to an actual design project.

    Open Office Architecture
    • Describe the implementation, advantages, and requirements of an open office (zone) cabling implementation according to the standards.
    • Provide an open office cabling solution to an actual design project.

    Course Examination
    • The students will pass the course examination to become an AMP Registered Designer.

    Yeah I'm excited about this...guess that makes me nerdy:p That's ok...its good to like what I do right? So its home tonight...Harrisburg tomorrow...State College for the weekend. Back to the big apple on Sunday.
