I'm not sure exactly what each student in the music department (or the
general intitute) is allotted, but I'd be wary of using Cal Arts computers
for a couple of reasons: 1) I'm basically HTML illiterate (I guess that
makes me a pretty big geek on the list...  or perhaps not enough of one? 
:-/ ) and 2) I can't really apply the time in would take to be able to Web
everyone's profiles.  Also, since this is my last year at Cal Arts, the
data would eventually have to be transferred to a new localle anyway. 
I'll send a message right after this one detailing how I would like to

I'm in the Multi-Focus Guitar program.  As far as cliquish behavior and

what I want to study in an academic setting.  And yes, the Modular Theater
(with the hydraulic platforms) was repaired following the 1994 Northridge
quake, as was most of the rest of the institute building.
