Comment Re:Isn't that anti-science? (Score 1) 1055

My issue with the National Center for Science Education is sort of losing the battle against creationism. It's spreading. Which doesn't make creationism right, only that the NCSE should focus on a battle that is easier to win (and they are losing anyway), before taking on a different opponent.

Comment Re:Since 1999? (Score 1) 93

I never worked there, but I was a student there, so I have some insight. CCSF was like a lot of old educational institutions - departments have their own domains. Thus, some departments might have had good IT support, and some probably had almost none. What is likely is that the main computer labs are fine, but the small, less-used computer labs are the ones with the problems.

As a recent former student of CCSF, I find this very disturbing. Fortunately, I always paid for my classes either in cash or by check. Never by credit card. I've always been paranoid about giving out personal information, especially online. Now it appears that I wasn't paranoid after all. You aren't paranoid when they really are out to get you.
