Well, it was one hell of a trip but we finally made it!
Who's we? Well, that question is answered down below. What was the trip? You can find that in the History of Changes.
Jacob is a recovering philosophy student and an antisocial bitch. He finds computers confusing and is often caught doing embarrassing things like manually inserting greater thans at the beginning of each line of a reply. He contributed to the SOCS Culture section and helped with editing, as well as offering a few technical tips which were wisely ignored.
Victor is not an antisocial bitch but occasionally an asshole. Finding him is easy, just look for the person sleeping in the front row of classes. Currently the least knowledgeable of the contributors Victor is more than willing to point you over to someone else who knows.
Sandra, who wrote the section on webpages, is currently losing her mind while doing her Master's in Computer Science. Her field of research is supposedly Artificial Perception.
Christina Swindells wrote the section on internships. She hates having people make ytalk attempts while she is doing work or reading mail. She is, however, only occasionally an antisocial bitch. So if you have questions about IYES that were left unanswered by her section, she encourages you to send email or talk to her at school.
Jeremy Tan graduated two years ago, but in a pathetic display of the human condition, can still be found at Open Air Pub every Frosh Week. He works as a Software Developer at a downtown Montreal company writing an average of three lines of code a day. His main ambition is to make sure succeeding generations of Computer Science students don't graduate, thereby threatening his job security. Nonetheless, he would appreciate you buying him a beer.
Navindra Umanee is, likely, the sole surviving student of this so-called team. [Updated: 2002]
Many thanks to ACM, CSUS, and systems staff for helping out with the distribution of the pamphlet, general publicity, and promoting awareness of this guide as a viable and useful student resource.
