Borrow Rich's DVDs

Movies is a file (.pdf) that contains a list of all the DVDs in my personal collection. If you are interested in borrowing one for a week, drop me email. I'll bring it in to school and you can pick it up (and drop it back off) during my office hours.

Contacting Your Advisor (Rich Pattis)

IM Hours for the weeks of August 8 - ... (Pittsburgh is in the US Eastern time zone)

Most students have registered by now, and the last few evenings, no one contacted me online. So, I think I'm going to suspend my regular online hours. If you need to contact me, do so by email; I'll either answer your question or we can set up a chat time, if that is necessary. See you all soon.
