edu email

It really annoys me that I spent over four years at GaTech and don’t have an email address from them.  In fact I used to take classes at City College of San Francisco in order to take advantage of educational discounts for software and such (eLearning at Stanford doesn’t provide email addresses to students unless they register for credit)… but when I went to get transcripts from the University of Florida I discovered that I’d had an email address from them because I’d taken four classes (I actually withdrew from two of them when I decided not to spend the entire Summer in Florida).

Beware the Ides of March

The Ides of March, May, July, and October would be the 15th day of the month.

The Ides of March was a festive day dedicated to the god Mars (Aries in Greek Mythology) and a military parade was held to honor the god of war.

The Ides of March is best remembered as the day Julius Caesar was assassinated in 709 AUC or 44 BC.

Of course, General George Washington also quelled a mutiny of his officers in 1783; but fortunately no one was stabbed as they were in Rome roughly 18 centuries before.
