Comprehensive?

January 14th, 2010

Don’t undercut the average printing amount by 300 pages! Also stop referring to it as comprehensive fee if you are going to reduce services and make us pay for things covered by the fee.

Printing quota

January 14th, 2010

The printing quota is ridiculous. Making students pay a penny more than their tuition, however they may pay it, is disrespectful.

Late fees

January 14th, 2010

Instead of charging for printing, the LIS should introduce late fees for every day a book or a CD is overdue. Apart from generating money, it will teach the students responsibility. It is very frustrating when you need the book, but someone can’t return it on time.

Printing tracker

January 14th, 2010

If the printing quota thing is going to happen, there needs to be a way to keep track of how many pages I’ve printed. Right now I have no idea…so maybe an email notification or something, so we know how close we’re getting to our quota.

WebMail or Gmail?

January 14th, 2010

Do you think we should switch midd email accounts from Microsoft Outlook WebMail to Google Mail and Google Calendar?

  • Yes — everyone forwards their mail to Gmail anyway. Plus, the Wave is coming…
  • Yes!! Please let’s do so. Microsoft Outlook is so out of date.
  • Yes! (A faculty member)
  • Yes!!! Gmail is Awesome!
  • Definitely, everybody already does.
  • Yes, let’s use better technology!
  • Yes, please switch over ASAP.
  • Yes — so much easier and more compatible.
  • Absolutely! Gmail = more space + integrated system + plays well with browsers other than IE.
  • Yes — your email communication will last longer than your time in school . No space issues, let Google administer your email!
  • Yes, Gmail is far superior — way more storage.
  • Absolutely yes, Gmail is much easier to use because I can filter emails.
  • Yes, simplify email, save money, easy answer!
  • Yes, if Google doesn’t own all my stuff or invade my privacy.
  • I fear not having Gmail.
  • Wave is going to be so clutch, please, I want it!
  • Whatever you decide to do, I’ve been retrieving all Midd emails to my Gmail (using POP account settings) ever since I enrolled here…so frankly, I do not care…but it’s true that I like the expanded email attachment option (over 20MB) on MiddMail…
  • Recommendation: expand Outlook memory. It’s the only thing Gmail has on Microsoft Outlook.
  • Teach Microsoft R+D that they need to build better software. But I like MS Outlook’s lightweight feature and its simplicity.
  • Not until it has support to check account using iMap.
  • No, I can’t deal with Gmail.
  • No, I don’t want a commercial company crawling all over my email.
  • No, I like having separate accounts for school and play.
  • No, Google is too creepy.
  • No, seriously?
