Here's clarification from Wayne Pollock, our sponsor at HCC (Bill, note
the part about a "thank you" to the dean).

I've been on leave for the past year. I'm back now. The Fall
Intro to Unix/Linux class is indeed Mondays and Wednesdays,
from 5:30 to 6:45. So having the meetings on Wednesdays works
well for my students. But HCC enrollment is high (43,000 students
per year) so as Bill said, it is at the mercy of which day a
room can be made available. And the Fall schedule won't be
known until the end of August. (That is, some classes will be
canceled leaving a room vacant, and that won't be known until
the first week of the Fall term.)

I would like to point out that the room is made available through
the kind efforts of our Dean, Beth Johnson. It would not be wrong
for SLUG to send a thank you every term: bjohnson@hccfl.edu
