Windows Live Expo Contest...

Did anyone here enter the the contest on Windows Live Expo? The one where you put something like a maraca or piggy bank up for sale, and "Edward G. Ramos" would buy it from you? I did that for Death to Smoochy, and I've been emailing back and forth with a guy named "Stanleytiips02" on there, because he wants to purchase it for his client. I was wondering if anyone knew if he was indeed part of the contest, or if he is just a random creepy guy trying to get my address.

Has anyone been personally contacted by this Mr. Ramos fellow? How about Stanleytiips02? What about those Ice Cube concert tickets, huh?

If you were thinking about waiving a stray credit in the interest of graduating on time, ask your advisor ASAP. Mine said that the last time she had heard of that being done successfully was when the student died. She also said that the committee who decides these things meets once a month.

On a related note, does anyone know how I could get an extra credit into my schedule in the third week? I'm already at 20.

I've heard that research universities often license and or sell patented ideas/technology that they've (students, facutly, etc) developed for additional revenue.

Do you know of any nifty things UofW has come up with?

no one likes cats in the u-district

i'm having trouble finding housing for an 8-person group because we want a house that allows pets (specifically one cat and 2 caged animals). does anybody have any suggestions? we've already called a lot of landlords in search of a cat-friendly home, so if anyone has any specific information please share!
thanks

Convention survey

Howdy folks. Several of my fellow UW Informatics students and I are currently working on a project to create a Facebook-esque social networking system for conventions (for everything from crazy anime nerd conventions to the Seattle Home Show), and we have created a brief survey to figure out how convention-goers locate convention-related information. If any of youse guys could take a couple minutes to fill out the survey with some of your convention-related experiences (if any), that would be most appreciated.
