List Day: This Day in Emails

Nineteen years ago: Catching up with a high school friend in his freshman year at Cornell.

Uri,

Look, I'm just sitting here eating my dinner, And as you know that can take awhile, I won't be here forever cause I have a 10:30pm intertube water polo game. Hell Yeah.

Seventeen years ago: Overachieving for marching band.

Jay,

In preparation for next marching season, I have transcribed all three trumpet parts for the entire marching folio into MIDI files for use by incoming freshman. While doing so, I've come across several typos or notes that need clarification. I was wondering if you could answer the few questions below concerning the parts so I can make a note of the correct pitches, etc. Of course, there is plenty of time before next season; so please do not give this a high priority if you are currently busy.

Thirteen years ago: Teaching remedial sightsinging.

Subject: MUT 1241: Sightsinging II emails
Date: Mon, 20 Jan 2003 10:47:17 -0500

Hi class,

I have taken the liberty of removing you from the departmental Sightsinging II listserv. If you received an e-mail this morning from Dr. Shaftel discussing alternatives to Practica Musica, this e-mail does NOT apply to our class. If you continue to get e-mails and announcements from a class you're not in, please let me know.

Finally, Theresa and Jimin, you do not see to be registered on the Blackboard site. This is because you do not have a valid garnet e-mail account set up with the university. Please do this soon so you can do all of the fun homework that gets assigned.

Twelve years ago: Arranging for my dad to do a home inspection before placing a contract on a house.

To: Dad
Subject: House Location
Date: Tue, 20 Jan 2004 17:15:54

Get on Rte 28 heading north past the airport. Cross Rte 606 where my job is. The next light is a T-intersection for Sterling Blvd. Turn right onto Sterling Blvd. About two miles up you will hit Beech Rd (no light). Turn right on Beech Rd. On Beech, pass Fillmore Rd and then take the next left onto Lillard Rd. Take the next left into the cul-de-sac at Hanford Ct. The house is vacant, so you can park in the driveway.

Also twelve years ago: Troubleshooting a bug on a dead-end project where updating a file upload occasionally replaced the file with 0 bytes.

From: Mary G
To: Brian Uri!, Tammy H, Joe C

Odd...I keep getting that overwrite problem. Sorry I wasn't able to try this earlier.

I'm using small text files, and when I add a new entry, I change most of the fields in the submission form, but try to add an existing file. And it keeps giving me that error and creating the 0kb file. Check out "Test 2 01202004" in the "Testing" category for an example.

Six years ago: Doing social things.

Date: Wed, 20 Jan 2010 21:32:25 -0500
From: Kristy and Jack W
Subject: Evite invitation from Kristy and Jack W

You are invited to "Super Bowl Party" by Kristy and Jack W

One year ago: Doing more social things.

From: Brian C
Subject: Super Bowl
Date: Tue, 20 Jan 2015 21:49:35 -0500

Wanted to invite everyone over to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday February 1. Game starts at 6:30 but feel free to come around six or a little earlier. Not a huge party just a few couples but we'll have good food. Must root for team handsome aka Tom Brady's team. Let us know!
