I really enjoyed the three-day Novell class. Starting class at 8 AM wasn't much fun, but it also wasn't as bad as I thought it was. The course material was interesting enough that I didn't even notice the time. I took my laptop with me, and Novell was kind enough to provide a wireless network with Internet access for those who were inclined to use it, so I was able to keep up with work e-mail while following the class. Instead of the usual desktop PCs and monitors for class work, Novell provided four laptops per two-student group instead (and mine made five on my table). I was lucky (or unlucky) enough to not have to share my work area with another student so I didn't get bogged down on the lab work in conversation with a partner. I offered to talk to myself instead, but no one thought it was a good idea. Anyway, I'd definitely recommend the advanced, intensive Novell classes to someone else who was a real Novell geek like myself. I don't think someone who works with Novell products only part of the time would enjoy this type of class as much.
So it's back to the regular grind tomorrow. Ehh, I had a good run.
