2005-10-28 00:25:39 Welcome to the Wiki! —KateWaterman

I agree, it's not the way I heard it either. Either one of the admins of the Friends group is being funny, or the group's name really is changed for an actual ticket. —BrentLaabs

2006-01-13 15:24:59 Hello there, dude from the floor above the convent. My RA says we're not allowed to be called the nunnery (she went to Catholic school and had horrible memories). I suggested calling us the Moulin Rouge instead. —KarinaSummers

2006-01-21 17:12:09 If it makes you feel any better, interfloor socialization seems to be a rarity. Even in a building as small as Rienda the 1st and 3rd floors have little to no contact with each other, as everything their denizens require bathroom/laundrywise is on the 2nd or their own floors. Based upon the same rule, only 1/2 of the 2nd floorites here travel to the other floors, with that group getting split in one half to each. I imagine something like the same principal goes on at Ryerson?

The situation's even worse in buildings that have suite bathrooms. That brings socialization down to only those within one's suite. —JosephBleckman

2006-02-01 11:26:38 thanks for the edit, I do not know all the cool tricks to wiki. —MichaelMolnar

2006-02-04 13:34:05 I heart Paul —JulieHooper

2006-02-04 20:20:19 Probably the only freshmen in recent memory to have read the ASUCD Constituion, Government Codes and Budget his first quarter here..... —JimSchwab

2006-03-10 02:25:49 You're on media board? make sure they know about our Cal Aggie opinion, I'm not sure it filtered down to them —KrisFricke

I didn't know that you were working on a Unit Director manual. Want to work up a personnel policy bit with me? —BrentLaabs

2006-03-19 22:37:47 Awesome job digging up asucd historical material — keep it up! —PhilipNeustrom 2006-04-08 16:24:52

PAUL HARMMMSS !!! paul harm wouldn't harm a soul. —DanXie

2006-04-24 12:05:08 ([WWW]Re) Seriously, how is the demeaning "member" more "neutral" than the correct "Associate Justice?" Personally I prefer to leave off the associate part, but nevertheless it is correct. —KrisFricke

2006-04-29 15:24:52 You have a papal mitre? O= I want to see it! —KrisFricke


2006-05-02 01:07:33 You're aligning yourself with F.U.C.K? It's Time for a Revival. —MaxMikalonis

Amusing Joke. I laughed —MaxMikalonis

2006-05-02 12:21:47 FOSL ROFL —KrisFricke

2006-05-03 02:42:45 I guess that the big new thing is creating your own ASUCD Slate. First the Christian Slate, and now FOSL (Though I'm only betting on one of those two getting off the ground). Where will it end? —MaxMikalonis

2006-05-05 00:47:48 Right now I'm taking 19 units, which includes 6 hours of chemistry labs and an uncurved biology class. If you add in the time I contribute to DCD and RSS, without any time for CalPIRG, I really don't have room to be involved with IAC. However, my pass time for the fall is May 15th, and with my plans, I may be able to find some time then. —MaxMikalonis

2006-05-05 09:43:55 FOSL.....Uh, I'm in. —JillWeinstein

2006-05-07 21:26:50 C'mon man. Slates are for elections and for voting blocks/ action taken by the elected officials. you cant put on a "asucd senate" page something about a slate that has never run an election and doesnt include any voting members of the senate. i'm with ya on the joke- but the wiki's for the average joe who wants to learn about a particular thing- saying FOSL is a slate would give people the wrong impression. you dont see me adding RASCALL up there and not having any senators to color the corresponding color. Chairs are important- but hired to do a job and probably shouldnt even be colored in anyway. —ThomasLloyd

2006-05-07 21:33:28 Nonetheless, if this is what he wishes to identify with, one can't fairly classify him as something else. —JosephBleckman

2006-05-08 00:58:16 point taken- so if he doesn't wish to be associated with a voting slate, then we can always not attribute any color. hopefully a fair enough edit that ends the revert wars. —ThomasLloyd

2006-05-30 20:16:57 I voted today at the MU polling place and since the incumbant was running for Auditor-Controller I wrote Paul Harms in as a write-in candidate. —RobRoy

2006-10-30 00:44:59   morty zuckerberg and the jewish slate oppose the consumption of shellfish from putah creek. keep it kosher and vote the berg in this year's fake election!!! —IanRamsay

  • we have jeremy gimbel as a rabbinical me, it'll be kosher! -Paul

2006-11-04 14:52:09   He has my vote! If only he'd abolish the econ. department... —AlexNelson

2006-12-09 16:31:41   K-Pow style...that's awesome —KevinPowers

2006-12-11 13:47:33   By 3am, I figured I should wait for other people to take up the revert war. Thnx —MaxMikalonis

2006-12-13 14:39:56   L.I.D. —KevinPowers

2006-12-14 17:47:51   Meeting after break, we've got a lot to discuss. —KevinPowers

2007-01-22 17:11:38   LID?.... you guys dont actually get much info... nothing we dont let slip —SpencerHiggins

2007-02-05 12:12:15   At least my fake name is meaningful, unlike others. —JoeLevy

  • I agree, SpencerHiggins is such a terrible pseudonym. ~Dave

2007-02-07 20:57:19   Ah-ha! That's where I've seen the face before. —ChristyMarsden

2007-02-18 22:53:03   The Wiki allows file uploads. It would be nice if you could upload the spreadsheet to the Higgins page. —WilliamLewis

2007-02-20 09:23:16   You can upload a file to a page by going to edit and clicking on the "Files" button. —WilliamLewis

2007-02-21 01:02:30   Its a very interesting set of numbers.... and everything adds up quickly. Either way, the Controller is paid a lot, but the hours are probably bad as well.... —MaxMikalonis

2007-02-21 01:55:39   Where are you getting the 2.79% increase from for the Stipend increases(as in why that %), and what sort of benefits do the stipend recipients receive? Additionally, is the KDVS # w/ all receiving $7 increases an over or under estimate? —MaxMikalonis

2007-02-24 17:00:54   Welcome to Cloud 9 —KevinPowers

2007-02-24 17:46:19   Future ASUCD Controller? —GregWebb

"Few Changes??? Thats what you think...budget hasn't passed yet my friend" someone who is not Andrew Peake, even though he is using Andrew Peake's user ID

2007-07-24 08:16:14   I didn't realize you were only a Sophomore - which would be quite a feat, good work! Hope heading up ASUCD budgets is fun, I'd rather stick to my Unitrans maddness. —ChristyMarsden

2007-07-31 23:35:15   How did you find me so fast on here? I joined like.... 2 hours ago. —AudryNicklin

2007-08-16 00:36:37   Oh I dont know, i'd be interested in hearing about any of them. I'm sure that mentality will get me an ear-full of stuff i wont end up joining, but i dont care. They're all important in their own way. So you're the ASUCD "controller"? I think you're one of my friends on Facebook haha. —MarielleBerman

2007-08-16 00:48:02   Well I might take it slow for my first quarter and stuff, but I'm interested in all the music programs, aggie pack, the ASUSD (but just because i said that doesnt mean you can convert me :D), random clubs, intramural sports, and the like. I was the Governing Board Rep. in high school so i've been in the ASB before, but i'm not sure if i want to do that in college. It was basically a lot of work and no recognition. —MarielleBerman

2007-08-16 01:05:27   Oh really? I didnt know that actually, I thought it was mostly student government. I did already see that the Band-uh dominates the bus driving jobs, which is really random but funny. When they were telling us about those jobs at orientation and saying it was good pay, I was like "hey, why not?" So yeah I sent Matthew Shannon a message on facebook introducing myself, I always like meeting new people, especially if I share interests with them. —MarielleBerman

2007-09-03 20:21:41   A Compromise of stated progressive ideals and known political realities. That comment was made at 2:13 am w/o caffeine, but feel free to read into it what you wish. How's you job been going/Summer? —MaxMikalonis

2007-09-05 14:20:37   Yeah, still in Adobe. I did change apartments though, so I did have to deal w/moving, and we had to move out by 9 AM on the 31st— and couldn't move in until 9 PM on the 1st. Which Sucked. But now I'm just dealing w/my classes and making plans for the Fall. I've got a fundraising meeting tomorrow which could be pretty amazing. —MaxMikalonis

2007-09-09 16:03:29   I find it amusing that you're the one that the text took a jab at and you're the one reverting back to it. Steve could learn a lot from you. —WilliamLewis

2007-09-11 17:28:55   Wow Paul, i guess i should keep a closer tab of who my friends and foes are.... —WeMo

2007-09-11 19:48:07   I use to when I was in high school and junior high and only a handful of times since. I think my pole is sitting somewhere gathering dust in my mom's garage. —JamesSchwab

2007-11-18 23:50:58   chair as a freshmen, controller as a sophomore...POPE by the time hes 30?!?! —StevenLee

2007-12-04 22:05:57   Berg! —EmilyMcDearmon

2008-02-21 20:27:25   i demand an icee good sir! —MattBlair

2008-04-02 10:03:39   Nice redirect from your public page. —EliYani

2008-05-20 08:55:23   whats with all the 'notable's you added to people's pages? were you bored. —StevenLee

2008-05-20 13:52:06   Paul is a notable ASUCD Controller. —AndrewBianchi

2008-05-21 00:59:14   Yeah seriously who does that? —JoeChatham

2008-09-03 14:09:41   Did you seriously write this about yourself? "notable second year"? Its ever so subtle but the douche in you is apparrent on this page. —AmandaAbughosh

2008-10-07 12:40:02   Haha, sounds like somebody was in a bad mood. PS thanks a lot Schwab for making people think I'm being a subtle douche! —PaulHarms

2008-10-07 13:17:59   WOW, I didn't even see that. I guess some jokes just don't translate. And you are definitely not subtle Pope Harms. —JamesSchwab

2009-01-02 23:02:56   Oh wow...did I write that? Damn. The bitch in me was glaring, I guess. —AmandaAbughosh
