No more e-mails to students 

After getting a plea for something that will get his grade up to a C (besides studying for the final) from a student, I've decided I'm not sending any e-mails to students this weekend.

As for Mr D, well, Easy Grade Pro informs me that he has lost 7.5% of his grade purely by not turning in a significant fraction of the homework. Given that homework counts for 10% of the homework, that's a VERY significant fraction of the homework.

Of course to turn in the homework he would have had to come to class... and that also appears to have been a bit of a challenge for him. I have no qualms about giving him a D. It's the grade that he's worked very hard to earn.
