MTT - Minority Think Tank

not to offend anyone, but am i the only one that thinks MTT is making a big deal over nothing just to push its agenda? maybe i'm just sheltered or something, but i've not seen any racism, at least in my classes. and now they're saying we should have required "multicultural" curriculum? i thought i got away from all that nonsense when i left seattle public schools :|

for all you web programming savvy people... i need help... first off, i'm programming in php using a MySQL database for the back end...

the situation:

i have a website with tabs @ the top... the first tab is a customer profile... the second tab is a bunch of form letters that are autogenerated depending on which customer you are looking @... i need to split up the customer profile into 2-3 seperate tabs so that each one is a little simpler...

the problem:

it needs to be able to click from one tab to the other without hitting the "log" button currently on the bottom on the customer profile tab... so, for example, if i change the name of the client in the name field, then click the alt contact tab, and then click back to the main tab the changed name should still be there...

i know anytime a field gets changed i could call a javascript function, but i don't think javascript can interact with the mysql database that stores the customer data... i can't use the $_POST array obviously cause it isn't being posted anywhere...

the only possible solution i could see would be to rewrite the links ie. javascript to include EVERY variable on the page and include them in the link... and then grab all of them via the $_GET array... but i am hoping there is a better way...

any suggestions?

CSE 100 or CSE 142?

OK, so I am an art major, but I am really interested in computer stuff. I don't really know much past how to use my lap top and stuff. So, should I take CSE 100 first or just go right into CSE 142. The descriptions aren't very extensive, and I am tempted to just take 100, but its not a prereq, and a lot of 100 classes are really boring... so any and ALL opinions would be much appreciated! Thanks!!!

Hey, I'm a senior at Garfield, and I was wondering how much UW cares about your second semester grades once you've already been accepted. Should I be horribly concerned if my GPA isn't quite what it was last semester?
