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]

Book 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 systems.

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.

Happy Reading!

Chaplain's Corner

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]
