04.09.2003 – Thursday 4 September
- • My first lecture was cancelled. I’d just sat down, the lecture theatre was just beginning to fill, and the lecturer, resplendent in a bright orange beanie, walked down the left aisle, put a notice “Lecture Cancelled – Anthony has lost his voice” on the visualiser, walked up the right aisle, and was gone. For a second we weren’t sure if it was some type of joke, it was almost surreal. My second lecture isn’t a lecture this week, but is a tutorial for people who don’t know basic HTML, so no point in going to that. I then have two hours of “Information Technology Project” practical, followed by an hour of “Intro to Information Systems” practical, neither of which I’ve yet used for their proper purposes. This was in turn followed by an hour-long “Computer Organisation” tutorial, which took me roughly two minutes to complete – and that’s only because I couldn’t find the programmer’s notepad thing we’re using to do it. In other words, I didn’t do anything at uni today.
