The whole idea of the paperless office hasn't really taken off unless you consider PDAs replacing post-it notes and emails replacing memos. As for the CRCs 'sitting on their ass and chatting on AIM', you must not go into the labs in the middle of the day - I assure you nobody is on AIM (it's not even on the computers), and sitting down is less frequent than you'd think, especially in a big lab. Your assumption that it's not a big deal to provide a stapler must be based on ignorance of every argument against putting the staplers in the lab. It obviously was a big enough deal that they had to take them out. Considering the fact that the time the CRCs trying to help people figure out how to print and fix printers and assuage those who can't open docs etc. etc. etc., was being overrun by fixing and refilling staplers, it totally changed the focus of the job. CRCs are supposed to help clients with computer related problems, not poke around inside a stapler trying to unjam it. The money it cost to supply and maintain those staplers was getting out of hand, so they stopped it. No amount of bitching on the wiki pages is going to make money magically appear, and like I said before, I gave Rob info and concerns from CRCs, and nothing's been done. If you want to complain about the lack of staplers, talk to the guy who made it an issue and then dropped it on its ass. He'll blame CLM for not getting back to him, but how many appointments has he made? I find it inconceivable that you can't forgo a beer or a soda or whatever for one day and buy yourself a stapler from the bookstore. School is there to provide you with stuff you may not already have (ARC, computer, printer, etc.), they're not there to hold your hand and tell you when it's naptime. And I fail to see how making a cardboard stapler is sadistic. Sadistic might be putting a stapler out with nothing in it and saying that there are no staplers to use. It's advertisement, designed to catch the eye. Think of it as an informational display. The idea of posting locations of public staplers is a good idea, that's something that deserves to be looked into. Constructive ideas are what's needed to stop a argument, not disparaging comments and uninformed assumptions.

Almost 98% of the student population bring cell phones which are bigger than a mini stapler. So they have space for a cell phone but not a stapler? Does not make sense to me. In addition, $2-3 that can be invested for at least one year cannot be compared to a $2-3 investment on food for one meal. Of course, students have to eat, but I highly doubt $2-3 will make that much of a difference. If you can spend that amount on alcohol or going out to party, I'm sure you can use it in a more useful way. Lastly, get a mini stapler and keep it in your backpack.

Of course, students have to eat, but I highly doubt $2-3 will make that much of a difference. If you can spend that amount on alcohol or going out to party, I'm sure you can use it in a more useful way. Lastly, get a mini stapler and keep it in your backpack. That way, you will NEVER forget it. As for the eco-friendly point, I agree on that. --["<span>Users/</span>JennKwan"] </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 146: </td> <td> Line 146: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> * Why are we still talking about this?

The whole purpose of these rooms is to help the students, a lil change might help. This doesn't neccessarily mean get staplers asap, but how about treating it all differently? With some empathy for students. It's sadistic to have a fake stapler, hand's down. What about putting up signs with the locations of ["Campus Staplers" public staplers] they can actually use? I think that's *much* more useful then the useless "wheres the stapler, do we have a stapler, stapler?, stapler?? NO STAPLER BITCHES!" type papers posted up. People ask anyway out of desperation, you said yourself the fake staplers don't stop people from asking. So obviously it's not working. How about trying to help the students out rather then deny them? Putting up lists of where real staplers are makes it easier for everyone, with a little respect or at least kindness to students, and much less work for the CRC guys as well. -["EdwinSaada"]<br> - <br> - ------</span> </td> <td> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 137: </td> <td> Line 127: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- What's the current standing on all this from the senate and CRC perspectives?

It generated a few mentions in the Aggie, consequent removal of the staplers, and some posting on the forum. The campaigning senators did a much more effective job of raising awareness of the issue. While I support the idea of independent groups for 'vigilante justice', and personally found the SLF amusing, they really didn't do much in the way of attracting public attention. The stapler was an advertisement: Merriam-Webster states an advertisement is '2 : a public notice; especially : one published in the press or broadcast over the air'. It's a public notice, it got attention, it's no different than a billboard. It's not sadistic - it wasn't designed with malicious intent, only to make very clear the absence of a stapler in the lab. I understand the frustration of the students, and I see your point and understand the principle you're standing behind. I must reiterate my position that it is under the responsibility of ASUCD to remedy this situation. They are elected to represent the student body, and as this is an issue affecting the student body, their duty is to resolve the issue. If you would like to bring it up at an ASUCD meeting, please tell me the time and I will try to be there. Personally, I have nothing against staplers in the labs, but the current situation prevents that. If ASUCD can either provide this service as a courtesy to students, or work with CLM as representatives of the student body, perhaps a solution could be reached. I feel that using the system designed for just this sort of issue is the best way to avoid needless arguments and create an answer to the problem in an effective manner.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Stapler Liberation Fronthttp://daviswiki.org/Stapler_Liberation_Front2005-05-13 13:30:35JesseSinghComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Stapler Liberation Front<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 151: </td> <td> Line 151: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2005-05-13 13:30:35'' [[nbsp]] Fair enough --["JesseSingh"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Stapler Liberation Fronthttp://daviswiki.org/Stapler_Liberation_Front2005-05-13 13:23:52BrentLaabswhy i don't just buy my own. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Stapler Liberation Front<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 144: </td> <td> Line 144: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ * Some reasons:<br> + * Because some students don't have enough money to eat, and should be spending money on food instead of staplers. <br> + * Because it's an extra thing to carry to campus, and takes up a lot of space.<br> + * Because people might forget to bring a stapler to campus one day, and still need to turn in a paper.<br> + * Because it would be environmentally unfriendly to have everyone buy a stapler.<br> + * Because it would be economically unfriendly to have redundant staplers.<br> + I hope this clears it up for you. --["BrentLaabs"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Stapler Liberation Fronthttp://daviswiki.org/Stapler_Liberation_Front2005-05-13 11:43:33JesseSinghComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Stapler Liberation Front<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 142: </td> <td> Line 142: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2005-05-13 11:43:33'' [[nbsp]] You must've gotten this question a thousand times, but I'm going to ask it anyway: Why don't you just buy you're own?

I don't know how flexible CLM can be with stuff like donations or working out a deal with OfficeMax, my guess would be that they would have to be entirely self sufficient. However, I'm sure CLM would be more than happy to host staplers in the lab if ASUCD wanted to pay for it, or if they could receive some dedicated funding towards it.

As for the CRCs 'sitting on their ass and chatting on AIM', you must not go into the labs in the middle of the day - I assure you nobody is on AIM (<span>it's </span>not even on the computers), and sitting down is less frequent than you'd think, especially in a big lab. Your assumption that it's not a big deal to provide a stapler must be based on ignorance of every argument against putting the staplers in the lab. It obviously was a big enough deal that they had to take them out. Considering the fact that the time the CRCs trying to help people figure out how to print and fix printers and assuage those who can't open docs etc. etc. etc., was being overrun by fixing and refilling staplers, it totally changed the focus of the job. CRCs are supposed to help clients with computer related problems, not poke around inside a stapler trying to unjam it. The money it cost to supply and maintain those staplers was getting out of hand, so they stopped it. No amount of bitching on the wiki pages is going to make money magically appear, and like I said before, I gave Rob info and concerns from CRCs, and nothing's been done. If you want to complain about the lack of staplers, talk to the guy who made it an issue and then dropped it on its ass. He'll blame CLM for not getting back to him, but how many appointments has he made? I find it inconceivable that you can't forgo a beer or a soda or whatever for one day and buy yourself a stapler from the bookstore. School is there to provide you with stuff you may not already have (ARC, computer, printer, etc.), they're not there to hold your hand and tell you when it's naptime. And I fail to see how making a cardboard stapler is sadistic. Sadistic might be putting a stapler out with nothing in it and saying that there are no staplers to use. It's advertisement, designed to catch the eye. Think of it as an informational display. The idea of p<span>osting locations of p</span>ublic staplers is a good idea, that's something that deserves to be looked into.

Not even the 'so, you don't have a stapler, huh?'. And again - if this is such a big deal to you, take it up with ASUCD. I tried to help Rob, but I have heard zero progress on anything. And I find it very difficult to believe that a CRC would tell someone that a stapler was stolen, especially when there's a communication taped to a CRC desk in Hutchinson explaining exactly why staplers were decommissioned.
