Where can I buy tamarind paste

Hi, I want to buy tamarind paste like this:

i.redd.it/3sac3peaezb31.jpg

Vincenzos used to carry it, but now they only carry a block of tamarind pulp which is a pain and a mess to deal with compared to the paste. Where can I buy paste?

UW Housing: Frustrated Rant

Don't live on campus. Housing is terrible. Sent e-mail to UWP maint/housing already. Still, I feel like nothing they do can really make up for my nightmare of an experience living at UWP. I lost money, time, sleep, and also my grades to some extent. My fridge broke down during the semester and I lost a LOT of groceries. I clean twice as much and burn through my supplies because of this gross, never-ending musky mouldy smell. I can't sleep because I resort to staying at CMH Great Hall for air conditioning past midnight regularly. I know laying in my bed will just be a sweaty and sleepless ordeal anyways. Then I get woken up before 7am because of garbage disposal and construction. I can't even focus in class anymore. Video evidence of some other stuff:

Mould in my shower, and also super low pressure at some point: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlrFkVpNuKw&feature=share

Shower curtains aren't waterproof at all? leads to a watery pool of mess that warped the bathroom floor and attracts bugs. Also, the heat and humidity made our bath mat stay moist for over 72 hours. We're throwing it out. I also had to throw like 3 other towels out because they refused to dry. youtu.be/v-vlROwqNlA

Three of my stoves broke (I turn them on high for five minutes then touch the stoves): www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2fhe8XfS_Q&feature=share

This is what the stove top ventilator sounds like (also broken): www.youtube.com/watch?v=S5MZtF2kMjI&feature=share

Also: laundry machines don't work. we're told to just carry our laundry to CMH. Water was completely shut off for over an hour and a half longer than they told us it would be (no warning of the delay given).

To their credit, stove has been replaced and they're investigating tomorrow, but I've wasted too much time gathering evidence to make them actually care enough to do something. I tried getting them to look at our stove-top ventilator a long time ago (a month or two ago?) and got an e-mail telling me they would do something about it, but nothing was done. It's still broken. It shouldn't be like this.

I'm getting really stressed out because on top of all of the stuff I already have to deal with as a Waterloo student, I have to fight for reasonable living conditions. I did the math. Since they're kicking me out on the 17th (I'm leaving a few days before that anyways), my rent comes to about $750 a month. Why is such a crappy building with non-functioning facilities and appliances and no AC costing me so much? I don't know what else to do :( I think I'm going to mental health services tomorrow because my ability to work and focus on school is being so heavily impacted that my anxiety (actually diagnosed with GAD by psychiatrist) is just making school 10x harder to handle. It's just a really crappy downwards spiral.

Starting a Minecraft Server for you thirsty gamers: an announcement

Thank you for participating in the survey.

Hello folks,

I am announcing here today the foundation of the second coming of the unofficial University of Waterloo Minecraft Server. It will be run as a survival server, and unlike last time, will not include a creative world for building. Here are some images I preserved from the last iteration of the server, a long time ago.

Here is the plan:

  1. The server will be run as a non-profit. I am currently accepting donations at the link below.

  2. Once I have received 9 USD in total, I will order the server from this online host, under the "Pigman" plan from the Montreal node. Should we exceed the capacity of that server, I will upgrade it to the next.

  3. If you donate, notify me through any channel available of your in-game username and I will provide you with a priority slot for that month. You will be given preference in joining the server.

  4. I intend to inform people freely and openly about the finances of the server, available in-game or on reddit, wherever possible.

Here is the paypal link to donate.

Anybody willing to drop MGMT 244 online?

Because of some issues due to my specialization no longer being offered to incoming students, I had a hard time enrolling in the classes I have to take bc quest was telling me I don't have the right specialization for certain classes. I pretty much got it figured out but the in-class MGMT 244 sections both overlap with my other courses. Anybody willing to give up their spot MGMT 244 online is much appreciated :(

OSAP needs me to write a letter about academic standing despite being in a good standing

I submitted my OSAP application only to have it suggest that I am not in a good academic standing. I have always taken 5 courses each term and I haven't failed any courses either. I am in a co-op program, but I alternate between school and co-op every 4 months. I'm going into 3B if that helps. I received this message:

Your OSAP application has been compared to your two most recent study periods and there is evidence that you may not be satisfactorily progressing through your program. For example, you may have made multiple program or institution switches, or taken multiple one-year programs or you may have multiple study periods for the same year of your program.

Before any OSAP funding can be released, a review of your academic progress is required. In order to initiate that review, you must provide the following documentation:

A letter explaining your academic goals, the circumstances (if any) that have affected your academic progression through your program and the steps you are taking to achieve your goals.

A copy of transcripts showing your grades from your most recent study period. You do not have to purchase official transcripts.

Documentation that supports the circumstances and steps you’ve described in your letter, if applicable (for example, medical documentation, or a letter from your academic counsellor).

If anyone has any advice on what I can do or if you've been in this situation before, I would appreciate any help I can get.

Loris says that it's restricted to math majors until July 10, so it should be open, right? But I still can't join because "seats are reserved", and the override form is no use because it's only for first year MA classes. Just wanna know if anyone else is getting this problem.

To the person that had $1500 damage done to their car in lot C and the person drove off without leaving a note...

do you think this could be the white car?

Saw this at 1:30 pm today (7/22/2019). It was parked beside Kismet. I saw a young asian guy and girl trying to clean the scuff marks off with a towel or something. you can see one of them crouching in the photos. i tried to get a picture of them doing it but they walked away as i got in position. they walked into one of those new restaurants that replaced The Grill. By the time I came back they were gone. I didn't think to get a photo of the windshield. maybe there would have been a student parking pass, idk.

i read your post yesterday and these two wiping the scuffs off a white car caught my attention. my car's been hit-and-run before, so I know the frustration.

message me if you think this could be the car and i'll give you the pics without the license plate removed

Good Place to get my brakes done

Looking for god recommendations to get my pads and rotors replaced on the back of my truck. 2014 F150. I understand price can vary dependent on parts but if someone has a good recommendation i would be glad to hear it. Even someone who just does it on their own would be fine.

Recommendation to host dinner for 30

I'm looking for recommendations to host a dinner party for 30 people. My buddy is gonna be done with his PhD and we are planning for a celebration, inviting everyone in the labs that we work with!

I was wondering if anyone has good suggestions for a casual dinner place that can accommodate 30 people on a Wednesday night, nothing formal. It would be nice to find a place that we can just hang around, chill, chat and socialize. The budget is about 20-ish dollars per person, if that's reasonable.

Thanks for your input!

I'll be needing a new suit within the next year or so and will probably wait for a sale such as the ones The Bay has for CK suits a couple times a year.

If I buy one online (whether it's from The Bay or another site) I'm wondering where is a good place to get it tailored at? And how much approx would it cost?

If you think the culture is boring/depressing at UW, the change starts with you.

If you want to do something then plan it and invite people, and if you get invited to something and say no then you can't complain about the culture.

I've noticed since I started, and unwittingly partook in, this cyclical pattern of negativity and perceived loneliness. Don't forget that we're the ones that make the culture, not the other way around :).
