From the Class of Winter 2014:
Hi professor Ian. I hope you are doing fine. Today after our NOS exam, a few of us were going to the E building to study for the linux exam and we saw that the local church was giving away free breakfast. We stopped and we decided to have Allen’s juice to study for linux. We were able to get work done and we wanted to share this with you. Proof is attached in the picture. Thank you for your time:
