Default Free MIT ... get your learn on.

I'm not sure if this has gotten around, but being a nerd, I found it awesome. MIT has made over 1900 courses available online, and free. Some very cool engineering courses, as well as computer science (with labs). Courses span from undergraduate to advanced graduate. Of course you will get no credit, but if you feel the need for recognition, please print out the attached image below the link.

That's a really super find, dude. I actually took a day the last time I was in Boston and "attended" both MIT and Harvard (I sat in the back of the room for a couple of big lecture classes) but I would never have thought that they'd publish their curricula for all the world to see.

Damn, I have to:
rebuild an engine
dig a shallow well
transfer about 200 movies from an S1 to an S2 tivo
sell some Miata parts
sell some of my 9 Fujitsu tablet PCs
remove the stripes from my Miata
buy/install a dp/muffler on the wife's MSM

Now I have to figure out when to do some of these class. Ugh!
