 +====== Tuesday Afternoon Food Time ======
 +Aliases: TAFT, Tasty Tuesdays, Tired Ass Fking Tea
 +Every Tuesday afternoon in the school year, between 3:30 and 4:00, donuts/​bagels/​muffins/​something better are deposited in the lounge by a volunteer in an effort to incentivize interactions between hungry grad students, post docs, and professors.
 +=== Details ===
 +An email is sent out every Tuesday when the food arrives; keep an eye out and come grab a snack when it does!
 +At the beginning of each semester, the current TAFT Czar (a [[student jobs|grad student job]]) will put out a
 +call for volunteers (please sign up!).  If you are the current week's volunteer, you'll get a reminder email
 +from the friendly TAFT Robot with all details. ​ After TAFT, you can get reimbursed up to $15 by submitting
 +an entertainment reimbursement form (available in the main office).
 +=== TAFT Robot ===
 +The TAFT Robot is a combination [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Cron|CRON job]] and Python script, and it must
 +be updated each semester with the new volunteers. ​ The code (as of Fall 2013) lives at ''/​o/​ishivvers/​taft'',​
 +feel free to go in and poke your nose around.
 +The current cronjob lives on ''​lupus'',​ and the command looks like this:
 +    # crontab entry for the TAFT email bot; script runs every Monday & Tuesday during the school months
