Subject:Some Clarification
Time:2:47 am.
GATEHOUSES ARE CLOSED
from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. M-F
and Sat. noon - Mon 6 a.m.

Parking is complimentary when gatehouses are closed with the exception of E1 where there is no overnight parking and any campus lots that have signs that restrict the lot's use at "all times on all days" to particular permit holders. http://www.washington.edu/admin/parking/gateclose.html

________

So is this *definitely* true? I have a history of receiving false information from the parking services staff (in person and via e-mail), so I question the validity of this statement. I just wanted to ask those with actual experience with parking in the permit required parking areas on the weekends, if this is fact...

Also, that particular page is the only one on the entire site that I've seen with that information (copied above). (Makes me wonder if this policy only *used* to exist at some point, but perhaps no longer does).

Thanks. (BTW, the reason I need to park is to attend the AIDS charity ball tomorrow evening at the HUB. I plan to park in the lot in front of McMahon).

There's 2 - 4 inches here in kirkland; I assume it snowed on campus?

And: did the myuw site die? I can't open it...

Edit: Hah. I found the cams; looks like it's raining for y'alls. :D

Subject:scary scam
Time:4:33 pm.
Hey guys, I don't know about you but I get like ridiculous amounts of scam attempts in my webpine but a recent one takes the cake as far as looking real.

First it is a letter from "Bank of America" (notice@alert.bankofamerica.com - already that's a far cry above the eBay scam emails I get that come from like, heyimscamming@haha.co.uk or whatever) telling me that my online banking account is frozen because there were too many failed attempts to log in. Then it says like "Need up to the minute account information? Sign in" and the link goes here. Okay, the address at the top is a giveaway but a lot of people wouldn't notice that - even the links to the right go to the real pages at the BoA website.

I had to mention this. I was tipped off immediately cuz I don't even bank at BoA (lol) but I was amazed and I pictured people like my parents (some of the most un-internet savvy people to ever use the internet) totally falling for this.

So, if anyone gets this, beware! And, if anyone knows who made it, tell them I said solid attempt!

Subject:Seventeen Evergreen Live
Time:4:55 pm.
If you're on your computer, you can hear Seventeen Evergreen live on RainyDawg Radio. Visit http://www.rainydawg.org and hear the California band play a couple tunes from "Life Embarasses Me On Planet Earth".

Rock need not bore. There are possibilities. So when the songs of Seventeen Evergreen come knocking at your door, open it up wide, and open up your mind – because these gentlemen bring you the good news. Legend has it that Seventeen Evergreen’s song-writing duo, Caleb Pate and Nephi Evans, met during a Sacramento elementary school recess where they were found making strange sounds with warped Speak-n-spells. For years, teachers assumed that the two otherwise quiet and introverted kids belonged in English as a second language classes. They were right. Music always comes first for Caleb and Nephi. Nephi soon left the grassy pastures of North Highlands-Sacramento after being kicked out of his childhood home when Caleb dragged a drumset into the family living room for an early jam session that birthed the early inklinks of a Seventeen Evergreen sound. These noisy beginnings continued in a house sandwiched between deaf senior citizens and an alcoholics anonymous building which provided inspiring and haunting visitors to the new home of Seventeen Evergreen's founders. Fast forward to the year 2002... After a year in England for Caleb and a year spent travelling the world for Nephi, the two met up in London to form a new discipline and promptly went back to San Francisco where they have been facing the new century in recording studio seclusion. The wait is worth it. Spend two and half minutes with any Seventeen Evergreen song, and you too will hear the sirens in the forest, the stars in the sky, on the ground and in your headphones. Seventeen Evergreen will be releasing their debut album, ‘Life Embarrasses Me On Planet Earth’, in August of 2005 on Pacific Radio Fire Records and will be touring the nation during the late summer/fall.

How do I check how much debt I've got from student loans? They sent me a little piece of paper sometime in the last year, but I don't know where it is now.

Edit: for stafford loans at least, you can go to the following link: http://www.dlservicer.ed.gov/
