5 Sept 2022 I'm going to run CS 3750 via Zoom on Tuesday, 9/6, due to the heatwave.
I will physically be in our usual classroom if you wish to join me there. Naraghi Hall's air conditioning is stronger than what I have elsewhere. I can project my Zoom screen on the overhead projector, to let students all see the same thing and... we'll improvise.
Try to do what you can to conserve energy from 4 pm to 9 / 10 pm for the next few days, please.
