8/22    Tired of nastyass html, netscape happy infocal replacement?  Try
        ~dbushong/bin/infocal.  e.g. "infocal cs61b" gives you schedule info,
        "infocal -d cs170" gives you course description  --dbushong
        \_ not that infocal via html has to be nasty, but
           makes gopher look functional.

8/22    The Commission on Campus Computing report is now public.
        You can see it at
        Salient points (these are all recommendations--they have not
        been and may not be approved by the Chancellors):
        * Computer ownership should be required for new students starting in
          \_ not everyone can afford a computer.
                \_ This is becoming less and less true.  (Read the report.)
                \_ If a computer is made a requirement, students can make it
                   part of their financial aid package.  -tom
        * Network connections should include a monthly charge starting in 1999.
        * All courses should have at least a skeletal web page.
        * All students should have a single account which includes
          disk space and Web access and which stays with them for the
          duration of their time at Cal.
        * IS&T should be moved under Carol Christ, and a new head of
          "Educational Technology" should be created.
