4/9     Has anyone taken the exam to satisfy the E 190 (technical
        writing) requirement?  What sorts of things were on the exam?
        \_ It's not actually an exam -- you have to go to one of the profs
           and present a tech writing sample as well as a paragraph describing
           your experience in both written and oral technical communication
           (separate paragraphs for written and for oral). Then you talk to
           them and try to convince them you're good enough. The general
           tendency in RECENT past has been to NOT let people pass out.
           However, I'm aware of 2 recent cases where people _were_ allowed
           to pass out. Email me and I can try to get you in touch with one
           of them (I presume they don't appreciate their emails posted on
           the motd). Oh, and you can get the "official" instructions on how
           to do this from 308 McLaughlin; just ask your SAO.  -alexf

4/9     Have you done enough leveraging, modularizing, and enhancing to
        provide IT professionals with industry-leading world-class solutions
        built from the ground up to address mission-critical enterprise
        e-business challenges brought by the internet today?
        \_ Why, yes I have!
           \_ So, if I tell you I did that stuff, would you feel a strong
              desire to invest in me? How about if I said the shit was scalable?
              I'm leveraging my ass off here.

4/10    I just figured out that it seems I can use soda.csua as an
        IMAP server. Is there some FAQ or doc somewhere about more on
        how to do this? For example... I am a little confused but it
        seems that my client (Outlook Express) created a "Drafts"
        file in my home directory.
        \_ Don't use Outlook unless you enjoy having your machine 0wn3d
           by some random guy who feels like using your 'net connection
           to DDoS ebay.
           \_ not the point. Yes, I probably should switch mail clients
              but dont have another installed on my machine right now.
              I just encountered another problem: When I try to send
              messages with the IMAP account I've just created in Outlook,
              I get the following error (no matter who the recipient):
                "The message could not be sent because one of the recipients
                 was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was
