    Need a favour from someone attending UofUtah or Utah State

    Long story short, in my free time, I do historical research with a view of doing a masters in history one day. There are a few books that I want to get from Hathitrust, a joint project of a whole bunch of American universities. They have scanned the books, but they uncoolly allow only Americans to view them. Worse yet, you can't even download the whole thing easily unless you're a member of one of the participating universities. Makes sense, I suppose, that they'd want to protect the copyright of books published in Serbia 6 countries ago. Don't get me started.

    As luck would have it, UofUtah and Utah State are both part of this project. Now, if a fellow Jazz fan might be so kind as to download these for me(they should not be too big), I would be forever grateful. In fact, I'd be willing to say 3 nice things about Tyrone Corbin as a token of my gratitude. Or post a picture of myself in drag from my frat day. Whichever.

    The link should be on the left side and say "Download whole book (PDF)." You'd then presumably be asked to log in with your school ID and whatnot.

    I logged in and it won't let me download it... probably 'cause I'm old and graduated and not taking any classes. Haters.

    Sorry, I tried.

    As an English teacher by training, I really should've remembered to put the comma there.

    You just add Eh? at the end of each sentence.

    Don't forget misspelling words like "favor" and "behavior", etc.
