rpiscrews.us is a domain hack originally registered in 2003 by RPI undergraduates who felt the school's administration was not treating the student body with respect.
The domain redirected to the RPI web site, but despite interest nothing else was done with the domain and it was allowed to lapse at the end of its term and was acquired by a domain squatter. When the squatters registration expired in 2006, it was again picked-up by RPI alumni. This time, the domain was configured for e-mail usage following the termination of the free e-mail for life offered to alumni in 2004. This e-mail service continues to serve as the primary purpose for the rpiscrews.us domain.
