Hi, can you all stop walking around campus with your cell phone hands free kits on. I can't tell if you're talking to yourself because you're nuts or because you just have no self respect and walk around with an earbud. I know you care what you look like because you're keeping Banana Republic in business, and walking around talking into a bud does not make you look hip nor cool. THANKS! =)

UW staff disclosed hundreds of e-mail addresses to Teriyaki Spammer!

Today, some of you may have received an e-mail from Margot Nims, an academic counselor in the physics department. The e-mail was advertising an SPS open-house event offering free pizza and pop. There's a copy of this e-mail at the bottom of this entry. Anyway, this e-mail was sent out to 630 students, presumably students enrolled in physics classes. The problem was that EVERY E-MAIL ADDRESS WAS PUT INTO THE To: FIELD IN THE HEADER!

Non-geek translation: The e-mail included a list of the 630 recipients in plain sight. This is bad for numerous reasons, including privacy problems.

Now the funny part. Jeff Marshal, a member of the Teriyaki Organization (a registered student organization), decided to use this list to his advantage. He e-mailed everyone on the list promoting the Teriyaki Organization. The e-mail is included below.
