The start of the new school term always brings out the most interesting questions for computer consultants on campus.
The predominant questions this term pertain to getting into E-mail and how to access the Information Highway.
An obviously distraught student came to the consulting office yesterday complaining that his E-mail wasn’t working. His attempts to get tickets for an on-campus concert kept resulting in returned mail.
He showed me the mail address he was attempting to reach. I asked him where he obtained such an unusual mail address.
He replied, “The sign advertising the concert said, ‘begins@7:30PM.’”
