→The Unix ID: clarification
==The Unix ID==
Every Williams student gets an email account of the form firstname.lastname@example.org, where 07 is the graduation year and abc are the student's initials. This moniker, 07abc, is known as the student's [[Unix ID]], and is used for logging into many different systems. If there are two students in a class with the same initials, the
other student becomes 07abc_2. Sometimes there is an 07abc_3, and an 07abc_4 has been known to exist, usually when there are only two initials. In all such cases, these unfortunate individuals are known as "underscores."
