Software Saviors

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Man, I wish these class schedule generators had been around and well-known when I was at UCB! So cool! Like Google, or Bookfinder, or NewsBruiser -- easy-to-use applications that help you enormously when you only faintly recognize the possibility of help.

I actually choked up at the end:

Shyu, for one, says he'd gladly donate his scheduler to the University for use in Tele-BEARS. "I'd give it away. It would be good just to get Final Distance out there, so people can benefit from it," he explains. "That's more important than money."
