Does anybody have a copy of the housing contracts we sign that they could scan in or whatnot? Mine is in storage, and there are a couple of points that I'd like to take a look at.

thelintconvenor: Calling all Earlhamites in BOSTON!

My roommate and I are moving to Boston just after graduation.  We've been looking for housing available in the Somerville area and we've actually recently found one apartment that we really like.

It's on Gilman Street in Somerville, and though it very much looks like what we want, we're really uncomfortable with the idea of moving into a place that somebody we trust hasn't checked out in person. If you would be willing to take a look at it for us, in exchange for something once we've gotten to Boston (dinner? quality Indiana beer? pet-sitting?), we would so appreciate it!

Please let us know, and either way, we're really looking forward to being in touch with many of you once we're in the city!

If you are willing and able to take a look at it, please email me (Michelle) at michelle.crane [at] gmail [dot] com and  I'll fill you in on the necessary details!

There's going to be a informational forum run by students on Friday at noon in Stout Meetinghouse to talk about issues of governance, including the processes that led up to the recent German Department decision. Yes, this has to do with all the fliers. Please come if you have questions, comments, or are simply interested in further opening discussion surrounding the decision making process as it happens at Earlham College.

Who's behind all the flyers all over campus with the veritable laundry list of why this place is in crisis?

currentlymusing: Gmail workaround for Earlham mail forwarding/retrieval

For those of you [Gmail users] still suffering from the great Earlham mail forwarding fail of 2009, there is a workaround: Gmail can retrieve mail just as Outlook or other email applications would.

Just go to Settings, under the Accounts tab, and click "Add a mail account you own" in the "Get mail from other accounts" section. Enter your email address and the other info it asks for, and use the dropdown menu to change the POP server from "mailer.earlham.edu" to "pop.earlham.edu". Port 110 worked for me.

Hope some of you out there can use this info.

currentlymusing: Richmond's claim to fame ... racists stereotypes at the U Washee?

Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this lengthy (and fairly balanced and thoughtful, I thought) analysis on Sociological Images. Was anyone here even aware of this place? I grew up in Richmond and I had no idea it existed, apart from the name sounding vaguely familiar.

Keeping whites and colors separate: The "U-Washee"

"Racism is ingrained in the Midwest; we’ve normalized it. Take, for example, my earlier post on Tony Zirkle, the Hoosier Republican congressional candidate who spoke at a dinner honoring Hitler’s birthday. (He also publicly advocated for racial segregation.) Zirkle lost, of course, but the fact that he had no problem publicly stating his racism - without thinking that others would object - shows just how commonplace overt racism can be here.

One of the best examples is the “U-Washee” in Richmond, Indiana. The laundromat is, literally, built on racist stereotypes of Chinese people and no one gives it a passing glance. It’s 1940’s era cartoon stereotype mascot, what Margaret Cho calls “feng shui hong kong fooey font,” and the extra “ee”s at the end of words in the business’s name and posted notices all combine to form one hellish timewarp into a past America most areas have forgotten but we tend to accept as typical - and no one utters a peep."

currentlymusing: Squirrelmail forwarding fail?

Is anyone else having problems with squirrelmail's forwarding feature?

For a few years it's been working fine, set to forward mail to my gmail address and then delete it from squirrelmail. Currently, it is doing neither, but the settings are correct.

*UPDATE:

Yeah, I sent them an e-mail about it a few days ago:

"There is currently a problem with our mail server and its not allowing
auto forwarding or replying. This is a campus wide issue and we are
well aware of it and we're trying to find a remedy as soon as possible.
Sorry for any problems this may cause and hopefully it will be fixed
soon."


So if you forward your email, you should probably be checking squirrelmail for the time being, just to make sure you're not missing anything.
