This was a spur of the moment idea I had. :) Coming up with course names for each "professor" to teach took some time, and the list is far from complete. I'm afraid I could not list everyone, but that's where all of you can help out! Post any new course ideas and their respective professors, preferably some that have not been mentioned yet.

One comment, I'm sorry, but some of the courses sound cheesy. Believe me, I'm well aware of this. After coming up with several snazzy course names, I guess I ran out of good ideas. :-? Oh, and one last comment, some people are listed twice because they have obvious multiple talents or interests. Don't take it personally if you are listed once while others are listed twice! Some people simply share more about themselves than others, which is fine. As I said, you are welcome to add what you wish to this list! This whole thread is supposed to be fun!

They post occasionally. They came to mind because I have spoken to them before. Ideally, we could have a course for all 7000 users, but there is no way I can think of ideas for half or even a quarter of these people, let alone all of them!

Linux 101:

Step 1 - Download Mandrake 9.2 or buy Suse 9 Pro (www.linuxiso.org)
Step 2 - Install it - Super simple installers for both of those too-better than
Windows!
Step 3 - Sit back and enjoy Linux!

Linux is actually very easy to use-if you can use Windows, you can use Linux! Now tweaking everythings a bit different... :wink:

That was funny.
May I make a suggestion for additional courses? Based on my observations, Prof. VEFF is well qualified to hold "Introduction to household appliances".
Also JamieW: "Bearbaiting 101"

Thanks everyone. It was fun to compile! And the compiling isn't over yet! :)

Monte: Ian is the Chancellor. He oversees the entire University. He could probably be considered the President and Provost too.

CDRecorder: I see Professor BurninMan921 has already contacted you about your inquiry to his class. Saves me the trouble of pointing you to his office. :)

Turkeyscore.com: That was my mistake, I remembered you had something to do with bicycles, and I thought it was BMX, but I was mistaken. It has been adjusted.

Kennyshin: I never knew cfitz spoke Japanese! How well does he speak/write it?

Action Jackson: What course would a jack of all trades teach? :) Usually courses are specific, unless it's a 100-level course, which can be broad, but they still focus on a particular topic...like geography.

hoxlund: I never said I was enrolled in your class. :D

MediumRare: VEFF's Intro to Household Appliances is viable, but Bearbaiting 101 for JamieW? I was hoping to keep all the courses respectable. :wink:

Me too! I just installed Linux for the first time last night. I went with Red Hat 9 for my first time...

Remember when he translated CD Doctor from Japanese to English?

dhc014: Doh! I forgot about CD Doctor! I never used it or WSES or K-Probe, seeing as I have never owned a Lite-On CD-RW drive. :)

pranav81: You are in the list. Did you miss it, my fine feathered friend? :)
