The start of the new school term always brings out the most interesting questions for computer consultants on campus. The predominant questions this term pertain to "getting into" email and how to access the "Information Highway".
An obviously distraught student came into the consulting office yesterday complaining that his email wasn't working; his attempts to get tickets for an on-campus concert kept resulting in returned mail.
He showed me the mail address he was attempting to reach. I asked him where he obtained such an unusual mail address.
He replied, "The sign said, 'begins@7:30P.M.'"
