Back to school

Students have returned! The calendar (and our very full parking lots) say so.  Welcome back to all, and best of luck for the semester.  Or better yet, here’s Lifehacker’s best of apps for students. They’ve got great lists for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.  My favorite from the lists is f.lux – it dims your screen automatically as the sun sets.  It’s a minor tweak to your display with a big impact.

Another big hit on their list is Dropbox, though if you’re at Ohio State definitely head over to  for your free 50GB of cloud storage.  Update! Storage in BuckeyeBox is now unlimited.  It’s a great place to save everything you need for class, and more.  Go nuts.
