Internet worm hinders GWMail

University technology officials said the recent rash of Internet-based computer worms and viruses may have been the root cause of Tuesday’s e-mail delivery delays, which left GWMail system users receiving e-mails hours after they had been sent. Although the direct cause of the slowdown was linked to a memory failure on the University’s e-mail server, […]

Cinema Sinner: Man Bites Dog

Everywhere I go, students are talking about “reality television” shows, from the kids skipping class at Kogan Plaza to the bastion of intellectually devoid speech – the Mount Vernon shuttle bus. First it was MTV’s annoying “Real World,” then came “Survivor” and now the suicide-inducing “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” One must paradoxically turn […]

District tourism recovers after attacks

Travel to the District is returning to pre-September 11 levels after an initial tourist drought cost the city millions of dollars a day. But experts are reporting an uneven recovery as many families, prompted by terrorist alerts, have stayed away from the city in large numbers.

Letters to the Editor

Something for professors to learn It has come to my attention, that every one of my classes no longer begins with discussion of the chapter, an article, or lecture of any kind. Recently, the first ten to 20 minutes of class are devoted to the professor trying to figure out how to use the technology […]

Reel to Reel: A refreshingly unromantic tale
