Javascript popup error!

Likely reasons that you're seeing this:

  • Most likely: You right-clicked or middle-clicked a popup link. Next time just left-click it. But if you're lucky, my site figured out what you trying to do and popped up the appropriate content over this error message.
  • Less likely: It appears that your browser does not support javascript. Try upgrading to the latest version of Firefox or Internet Explorer, or else try again from a newer computer. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Peer review bug

Several of you are emailing me to report a peer review bug. If you're having a problem where the website serves you the same essay to read twice in a row, that's the bug. If you encounter that, just stop working on peer reviews for now. I will look into it in the morning and provide an update. I will also be extending the peer review deadline.

Also, I'm using a different method to send this message since I'm out of my office, so ignore the different formatting and the old "welcome" message that probably appears below.

Welcome to Poli 110!

Yep. You've found the course website. I'll periodically post announcements here. The most recent announcement will always appear at the top. If BYU has your correct email address, you will receive a copy of all announcements by email. (Check your spam folder regularly.)

You'll find a link to the syllabus and other resources in the sidebar. Note that you can import course due dates into your personal calendar (Google Calendar, Outlook, whatever). Click where it says "Syllabus: Calendar view" to learn how.
