    Shot glasses are ideal as egg cup holders, tried, tested and recommended!

    With reference to laptops in lectures, I don't think I've seen anyone with a laptop in a lecture actually doing work. They're either on ebay or addictinggames.com. One guy on my course pretty much runs his business from lectures on his laptop!

    My solitary egg cup is out of a Christmas cracker, so if you forget one and can wait until Christmas you might be lucky like me and win one in a cracker

    So can the upturned lid of a fabric softener bottle

    I forgot the cable to connect my iPod to my computer. I found though I took loads more stuff than I actually needed and have been carting bits and pieces back every vacation to save me overloading the car in June

    I'll deffo bring my laptop, but don't think I'll ever use it in lectures, it's too much hassle for that (plus the cooling fan would really irritate me).

    I couldn't have done without my laptop in 2nd and 3rd year, but could have easily managed it first year.

    I forgot:
    *Batteries for remote control for new portable CD player
    *An extension cable / multi-plug thing - too many plugs and not enough sockets
    *Ariel for TV

    lucky I don't need hot water bottles or coathangers, since they seem to be the most forgotten thing. Wouldn't know what to do with one anyway, too scientific for me! :p:

    I'm using a laptop right now...

    I know what the keyboard sounds like.

    I also know that a bunch of people all tapping on a laptop keyboard in the same room can grate..
    The majority of laptops are a lot softer sounding than the average computer keyboard.

    And the chances of every single person in the lecture theatre using a laptop are? A few people using a laptop in a lecture has little effect, as evidenced by my experience.

    I forgot my bath mat. Well, actually I didn't think I'd need one. And then I wanted one, so I got one... and my friends hold it against me and laugh at me because of it.

    I dont think I forgot anything! But that was probably because I was uber organised and wrote about a bazillion lists heh

    My flatmate however forgot most things. She forgot her plates and cutlery and half her clothes :rolleyes:

    I know that very few people do use a laptop.

    But I can see why a lecturer would want to discourage more and more people using them in the lecture. Because they are getting more popular.

    that, and the possiblilities for distraction, of course.

    And like I said before, I know what a laptop keyboard sounds like. Enough of them would get annoying.

    Plus some people proper smack the keys. When me and my friend use our laptops in the same room we have to turn the tv up because she bangs the keys so hard.
