(no subject)

dear ph.d students,

i provided clear, concise instructions on how to (a) download source code and (b) how to build the source code. needless to say, i am not exactly pleased by the email you just sent me. telling me that you ignored my instructions, couldn't get the source to build, and are now wondering whether or not its important that you follow my instructions will not have a pretty ending. especially when we will be at the same conference next week, during which i will have ample time to discuss your inability to follow instructions with your adviser.
