You probably know this, but ever since your first semester of 373, undergrads have been advised to wait for /you/ to teach it. ACM repeats it like a mantra, and the !Bang courseguide comments do the same. (The reputation is well-deserved; you're probably the most lucid undergrad professor on campus. At least, that's my opinion as a survivor of the undergrad machinery :)

Your popularity, however, means that there are only two ways to avoide surpassing TWLACE!: never teach the undergrad section again... or lose the hair and change your name.

Good grief! I better tell Pedro to shave his head.

I hate to rain on your parade, but given the number of grad students the department admitted this year and the fact that very few of us took 473 last semester, I _strongly_ doubt you'll end up with less than fewer than 100 students

Yeah, I was afraid of that. But both semesters?
