Why do banks charge you an "insufficient funds fee" on money they already know you don't have?

Current Seminar Scope:

Brown Bag Seminars (that means you can bring your lunch):
These seminars are devoted to a wide-ranging selection of technical presentations of interest to the participants. We are finishing a seminar on Windows internals this Summer (started last fall) and will continue on with Windows Presentation Foundation. In these seminars, participants will make presentations on a variety of topics. The idea is that we will talk about things we are currently working on or are interested in enough to devote considerable effort to make a good presentation.

Texts and Notes:

This Summer We will be circulating my copy of the texts:
  1. Essential Windows Presentation Foundation, Chris Anderson, Addison-Wesley, 2007
  2. Windows Presentation Foundation Unleashed, Adam Nathan, Sams, 2007
You may wish to acquire copies of your own - the books are excellent. Anderson stresses concepts, Nathan has very useful tutorial material.

Here is a link, provided by Tilak Patel, to a very useful WPF centric blog: Josh Smith's Blog.

Seminar Location: CST 2-129, Time: Fridays 3:00pm - 4:30pm
