4/1     Im interested in putting together a team of cs dudes to
        setup an online voting system for the next asuc elections.
        If interested, mail me. --sly

           \_ What's the site? Is it set up such that people can vote
              online, or was it just a listing of the winning and losing
              parties? --sly

4/1     Informal Soda Salary Survey.  Please join in.
        \_ Do you want the nominal or real hourly rate?
           (i.e. no over-time, work 60 hours a week).
                \_ If you're on a salary, put that down, not including
                   options, etc.  If you're a contractor, put down what
                   you get per hour.  The amount you work is assumed
                   to be ~40 hours per week.  If it isn't, put a note
                   that you work >> 40.
