TO THE EDITOR:
How do you like those computers in Davis Library?
I know I’m not the only one who has wanted to pick one of them up, carry it outside to the Pit and destroy it with a baseball bat.
For whatever reason, normal speed, normal functioning computers are not a priority. What a bummer.
I don’t know enough to know where to place the blame. I don’t even know enough to know where to place a complaint. It frustrates me that I as a student would have to be the one addressing this.
What do I know?
I know when I try to open Microsoft Word, it can take anywhere from 30 seconds to two and a half minutes. I know that it’s not uncommon to try three, four or even five computers before I find one that works. I know that on more than one occasion I’ve had papers get lost when the computers froze up.
I know I’ve checked with the library staff and they say they get complaints about them all the time.
And unfortunately, I know a poor functioning computer is great at boiling my blood and reminding me that I have not yet reached enlightenment.
So I ask other students, how do you like those computers in Davis Library?
Most importantly, I ask the powers that be: What can be done to fix this issue?
