This post really takes me back those 14 years to grad school... like the parent, I found out about /. in the pre-user account days when another grad student in my office kept talking about the site.

Bon voyage, Rob, and indeed, thanks for all the fish wrapper.

In other words, later this month it will be illegal for students and teachers to be friends online."
