10/11: At the end of today's workshop, we agreed that those who have difficulty with access to a computer after 9pm, because they live at home and no have no internet connection, may post their seminar responses (those due on the day of seminar) the following morning before seminar (rather than by 9am). The deadline for posting comments remains the same (9pm the night before).

10/6: Postings on web-x are due at 9pm the night before seminar and responses to comments others have posted are due at 9am the following morning. The first seminar for which this is required is on Oct. 10.
