The Wonder of Powerpoint

My Operating Systems class is loads of fun, and although it involves much work, the lectures are always engaging. As a Thanksgiving break (and because we have just turned in paper drafts) there was no required reading for today. Instead, Dr. Thain talked about the presentation of data. He concluded with this priceless image.

Brief Flashes of Light

We have stuff in the office by the copier and there's cheese/crackers in
the refridgerator. Please come and help yourself-so far, the best
response time from any grad student to these emails has been 2 1/2
minutes; let's see what you can do :-)

I just received this e-mail... and as you can guess, I'm slacking on my duties!
Clearly I need to beat the current best time if I am to maintain my stomach at full capacity.
