Apparently CSE 471 student-body is turning into a veritable California electorate with voter-sponsored initiatives aimed at the evil deadlines.. I wish people divert part of this enthusiasm to blog-participation on thinking cap questions..
Anyways, while the blog makes it sound as if there is uniform and vocal support for deadline change, I have also received direct mails asking that the deadline *not be shifted* since the students in question have worked their schedules around to get done with the project.
To be fair to people who have completed their work as well as allow a little more time to those who want to complete the project, I will take the project until Tuesday with a 20% late penalty. (Please resist the temptation to ask us questions such as "Can reduce my penalty to 5pi% if I turn in the project only pi days late")
