yeah, i had a thought late last night of using some of my professional development funds to purchase a mac-mini and installing FM Pro on it. i could leave it at work and make it a server. i have no more than 100 students in any semester and i would only use it with my students, so i doubt i have 5 trying to access it at the same time . . . and, the surveys would only take about 5 minutes. i'll have to fiddle around with FM Pro to see if i am too far gone or not. it's nice to know that you're skilled with it. hopefully i stick with it long enough to get to ask you some questions. <br><br>just opened it and it's crummy that none of the templates are surveys.<br><br>--<br>Straw-man rhetorical techniques are the practice of refuting weaker arguments than one's opponents offer. 2 "set up a straw man" or "set up a straw-man argument" is 2 create a position easily refuted, then attribute that position to your opponent.
