Subdirectory - November 1996 - Edition 2.2

Welcome, everybody, to a new year of Subdirectory! I admit, this is a little late, being 12 weeks into the '96-'97 school year, but I've been saving up a lot of stuf, so what do you say we hit it off? Hold tight...

First, an update on the e-mail situation. The ban on student e-mail is still in place here, but our new Windows 95/SchoolVista network placates the urge of some students with a system where they write short memos, then send them within the school to another student. But outside access does not exist, which is a downer for some students whose only means of reaching distant family is a quick e-mail. Fortunately, though, students have been handling the memo system, and rumors are going around that there might even be a reinstatement of e-mail access at the end of the first semester. But this has little impact on me. You see, I now have internet access at home, through a local ISP (internet service provider) called Iowa Network Services, and the system has been running pretty well, except for a time last night when I, needing election information for a government project, tried to connect and was greeted with a busy signal, which lasted all night, causing me to fail in completing the project on time. But it's still pretty handy, and now I could care less about the new e-mail here at PVHS. But for the sake of everybody else, I hope the administration here brings it back very soon.

You know, if my English teacher saw that run-on sentence in the last paragraph, she'd probably flunk me...

Well, the time to choose a college is approaching quickly, and I think I've decided where I'm headed: Luther College. From what I saw when I visited there last week, I saw an excellent facility, nice, small classes, and an amazing Computer Science, due to the new Olin Building, with $6 million of high-tech systems, including about 20 SGI Indy workstations (and for you laymen out there, that translates into "Really Huge Supercomputer!") I'm about sure I'm heading there, so who knows, maybe a year from now, you'll be reading this from my Luther homepage! On the other hand, you may be reading this from a totally different school's server, and I'll look like an idiot. But I do, anyway, so what happens happens...

Well, everybody, I've plum run out of ideas for this month, but, trust me, there'll be a lot more where this came from. Until next month, this is Chris Tasler, logging off. Go Back to Subdirectory Menu

This is the not the opinion of Prairie Valley or of its administration. It is the view of Mr. Tasler.
