2/8     Any alums working for a company developing Organic LED technology?
        Kodak, duPont, Philips are some big names.  I may start PhD research
        next year involving OLEDs, and would like to start building
        relationships with companies.  Any kind of headstart would help.
        Please email me with info.  -sax
        \_ some of the censored responses lead me to elaborate.  I'd like
           to obtain samples this year, so that next year I can develop
           real tech specs.  The payoff for a company willing to work with
           me will really be in the 4-6 year range, and will be in free
           publicity, free research into functional uses for the material,
           and in the end large purchase orders when I get to that part
           of the funding cycle.  Plus it's an artistic endeavor, so any
           donations are probably tax deductable.   -sax
                \_ what is your GRE score, smart ass graduate student?
                   \_ "billions upon billiona upon billions..."
        \_ hello PhD candidate. I know you're very good with GRE/written
           qualifying exams/theory shit. But I just wanna know how much
           common sense you have. Like, are you good with managing money,
           interacting with people, and doing other stuff?   -curious
                \_ you are a stupid dick.  Saxby works at the art museum and
                   draws his own comics.  He's better at "interacting with
                   people" than you apparently are.

12/20   Question to people in industry: I'm a transfer student, which
        means I can take an extra semester to graduate. I will have met
        all the requirements to graduate in May, but already have an
        internship lined up for the summer and was planning to use the
        semester afterward to take some courses I haven't had a chance
        to yet (graphics, distributed systems (if they add the course),

12/11   "Should Your Kids Pay for College Themselves? - Yahoo! News"
        "They found that 63 percent of those who graduated from college said
        they received some financial help from their family. Only 42 percent
        of those whose parents didn't help managed to graduate from college."

2/8     Why does UC suck so hard? I did undergrad at UCB and I hated it.
        Professors couldn't teach, class workload was high, and the system
        was designed to "weed out" students and demoralize them rather
        than teach and encourage them. I always got lower grades than I
        deserved for the amount of work I put in. I don't know if this was
        because of the curve which insists that 50% of students should get

        P.S. The office has actually been in 337 Soda, not 343 Soda, for the
        past year and a half or so. Speaking of which, the
        wiki doesn't look editable, whereas there is in fact an official CSUA
        wiki that authenticates to our LDAP backend (i.e. CSUA members can
