Bits of tid

1. Why is it that no two departments in the university use the same identifier? I'm trying to do release of final paycheck forms, and it's ridiculous. Some want the Personnel Number, some want the Student ID, and one still uses SSN. Gah.

2. Why do people say, "If this post isn't allowed by community rules, moderator please remove"? Why not just email the moderator first and ask?

3. ljgenie is nifty, and found me the pie charts I was looking for a few days ago.

4. Everyone Deserves A Roof. Truly portable shelters for the homeless.

5. Fantastic Contraption, a Flash game that might actually teach some physics, sort of.
