One Small Step For A Man...

I read somewhere years ago that those were Neil Armstrong's intended words when he stepped down to the surface of the moon. Whether he neglected to say the "a" or he spoke quickly and elided over the word, I can't say. His famous quote makes more sense though when you add that little article back.

Anyway, my son accomplished a feat of independence at school. He went to the Tech Support office and got his wireless connection straightened out. He will still need an Ethernet cable for easier Internet access from his dorm room, but for now he's got a workable solution. As tempted as I was to take control, I (more or less) stepped back and let him handle it...and handle it he did.
