Contingency plan

- Sir, our ship is sinking. Do we have a contingency plan?
- Sure, we do... (yells) Save yourself!!!

This is exactly what is going on with the (possible) strike of the staff.

From office of vice-president:

September 11, 2005 3:34 p.m.

In terms of the commencement of classes, please note that certain classroom support may be limited. While there will be AV support to key areas (e.g., Con Hall and MSB), there will only be moderate support for most classrooms. If AV equipment is not already part of the classroom, it is unlikely that it can be delivered. Faculty should prepare lectures that do not rely on the use of AV equipment wherever necessary.

The person who wrote this should be aware that the quality 1-hour lecture with data-projector requires at least 10 hours of the preparation for professor experienced in this staff (and much more for the newbie) and tell at 3:34 p.m. Sunday (provided professor looked at the University website at this time, which is not very likely since there was no email notification about possible strike sent in advance) that 10 hours of preparation have gone to drain and professor should prepare a new lecture with chalk and blackboard is exactly equivalent to "Save yourself!"

When the Professional Union of the Smart Neurons of my brain will go to strike and only members of the Professional Union of the Dumb Neurons will report to the job - I will be fit to work in VP office :-)
