Students Participate in local version
of nationwide anti-Bush protests
“No business as usual! Drive out the Bush
regime!” For 90 minutes these statements echoed across
the Nov. 2 lunchtime intersections of Bishop and King streets,
where more then 40 UH-Manoa students, joined by a few downtown
office workers and HPU students, protested the policies of
President George W. Bush. [More]

Beat - The origin of e-mail
by Deborah Barsel, head of
Circulation Services and Kathy Chee, University librarian
Think e-mail has existed forever? Not so.
In the early 1960s, communication between computers was limited
to users connected to a mainframe computer. In 1970, ALOHAnet,
created at the University of Hawai‘i, was the first
network allowing different locations to access main computer
In 1971, Ray Tomlinson invented Internet based e-mail. Personal
computers appeared in 1973, the same year that Bob Metcalfe
invented the Ethernet connectivity system for microcomputers.
Times have certainly changed. We now take e-mail for granted.
It has developed its own forms of etiquette (Netiquette), slang,
viruses, crime, humor, misuse, and commercialism.
There are many providers of e-mail services: Yahoo.com, hotmail.com,
Gmail.com, AOL.com, Goowy.com. As an HPU student, you are automatically
given an HPU e-mail account at campus.hpu.edu. The HPU Libraries
will use this HPU account to send you e-mails related to your
library account. To receive these communications on any of
your e-mail accounts:
log on to HPU Pipeline,
open the e-mail icon on the main screen,
select the OPTIONS tab, and
use the Auto Forward option to forward e-mail messages to wherever
you regularly read e-mail.
If you have any questions about this, call Atherton Library
at 236-3505 or Meader Circulation at 544-0210.
You made it! It’s all downhill from here!
This semester is rapidly rounding to a close. I can see the
light at the end of the tunnel. As finals approach, I’m
sure many of you feel like you are running on empty. You
feel you have been overstretched to finish up projects, term
papers, and reports. Don’t panic! [More]
