Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I am planning to go to the openhouse in March, but I don't think I can wait that long to find out the answer to this question... the suspense is killing me!

When I was little, I LOVED escalators, and when my parents told me they had escalators in the Jordan River Temple, I concluded I was going to get married in that temple so my husband and I could ride the escalators together. But alas, I am still single.

So... when they remodeled the Jordan River Temple, did they remove the escalators, or are they still there?

-Need to know if my dream is crushed

A:

Dear you,

Google reveals that the escalators were changed with stairs, unfortunately. But the Seattle temple still has escalators! I really enjoy them.

And I disagree with anyone who tries to say that stairs make a more doctrinal analogy. As if we climb all the way to heaven by our own power! There's something beautiful about literally being lifted closer to God's presence.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Sorry, another college application question. I just requested that college board sends my sat to BYU. Can I submit the application now, even though they haven't received the scores yet? If I sent the scores and they arrive in a week, is that too late?

-VERY STRESSED Abe Frost

A:

Dear you,

Public service announcement: if you need an answer in less than 100 hours, I highly suggest asking someone else besides the 100 Hour Board. Our answers are published 100 hours after the question is asked, even if we answered the question a few hours after you asked it (unless we're still working on them—sorry, all you people out there who have been waiting for 200+ hours). 

I just checked the deadlines for BYU Applications, and it looks like that deadline was February 1st. So I'm not certain how useful this answer will be. Unfortunately, when it comes to SAT scores, "All materials must be received or reported by the appropriate application deadline" (source). If it were me and I had already completed the application besides sending those scores in, I would submit it anyways and hope that the scores get there before they notice they're missing. 

I hope it all worked/works out for you though!

Abe Frost,
You probably got the email as well, but on Friday I got an email saying that the application deadline has been extended to 5pm MST on February 6th.
Best of luck,
Fellow applicant

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I can't get my printer to work. I'm in Provo, so where can I go that's cheap and reliable to have someone take a look and tell me whether it's worth fixing or if I should donate/recycle it?

Thanks,
print media

A:

Dear Media,

It would appear as though none of us have personal recommendations for where to go to get printers checked out. However, when I've previously had problems with my computer, I went to the CougarTech store (at least, I believe, that's its name... ) adjacent to the BYU store, and they looked at my computer for free. Perhaps they can either look at your printer, or at least give you better recommendations for where to go.

Q:

Dear My Peeps,

While being bored at my TA job, I came across Board Question #962. I tried the link to see a picture of Hope but was sad to find that the link doesn't work anymore. Is Hope alive? Is there a picture still?

-Duck Searcher

A:

Dear Ducky,

One cool thing about being in the CS program at BYU is that you get your own little space on the servers at BYU with a folder that is publicly accessible. Some classes require you to put html files on there or some website info while others say you can use that or your own server.

It looks like that link was to a file on a student's personal CS account. Their account is probably gone since that writer is long graduated. I tried to find out what happens to old cs accounts when someone graduates but I wasn't able to get specific info. I've been graduated almost a year and my account is still active and I can access my public stuff so it's possible the CS department has a retention policy of 1 year, 5 years, 10 years and then deletes the account or it's possible the student who owned that account just removed the picture from the public folder. Either way, I don't think that picture exists anymore. Sorry.
