    I love propaganda though, generally. Was pretty interested in constructivist art when I was younger too, don't have to believe in Stalinism to appreciate it :moon:
    Well, you'll surely be able to appreciate that heaving monstrosity that Mr. Mittal is funding for the Olympics and which looks like some amalgam of the Tatlin Tower and the inner canalways of a nostril. I don't think I can. (By the way, just for the sake of exactitude, constructivism had its greatest impact, at least within the USSR, in the 1920s and '30s, i.e. before Stalin, and then fell out of favour. Stalin himself favoured neo-Gothic architecture and obviously socialist realism in art.)

    And wow, I only went away for the weekend, and this place has been a hive of activity. Good luck to all the applicants!

    I've been absent from this soc for a while. Final years been a bit of a stress thus far, and no Classical archaeology nor ancient history this term! Largely because the ones offered held little interest to me and another which looked quite good (about temple architecture) isnt running this year...

    Dissertation's cracking on though, though I doubt any here will be interested in its contents (environmental reconstruction of a mound and enclosure site in Brazil) but I'm getting into it now

    Yeah, I'm doing Archaeology with Forensic Science at Exeter. (Though I started off doing Ancient History and Archaeology in my first year, but transferred after my first term)

    Always great to see one of the old-timers here--makes me feel not quite so old!--and nice to hear that everything's going pretty well, even if there's some of the inevitable storm and stress hanging around. So do you know what you're going to be doing with yourself next year? Applying for any postgrad courses?

    Thanks. As I am uncultured, I had to google translate the Latin. Google told me it meant: 'So! well! CLOWN PUNCHERS!!!!' :rofl:

    Thank you. Finally feeling more motivated with this course. I got my highest grade so far on it (74 - I'm no superstar historian), so yeah, happy.

    It closes at like 7, no? Good luck

    Edit: no, it's 6pm. You can do this, just write!

    I hate my (new) laptop ketboard so much even now! How I long for the old one with its mighty clunky keys with which one could type with feeling damnit and with rarely a misplaced letter.

    Some rubbish about the importance of the Phaeacian books and the relevance they have in the entire Odyssey, not too tricky just I left it far too late

    I found something online stating that the building closed at 6 :dontknow: Did you get it in?

    Thanks. How the games/spectacle reinforced the power and communication of Rome in the provinces.

    Oh yes, I think I've heard about this infernal keyboard before! But that makes sense, U being next to I and all (I'm sure there's a motivational poster in there somewhere :rolleyes:).

    I've been in at 7pm, but never risked any later, so I don't know exactly when it closes, it'll probably be whenever the cleaners have finished. They say 6, but it never seems to close that early.

    Okay fair enough. I never hope to be any later than 5pm though, even if I do have enough submission forms to last the year!

    Ah yes, probably part of my "I hate Dell" tirade.

    The previous one was an Acer Aspire 5920G. It had a nice robustness to it, you could write an essay, listen to music and then use it to assault somebody. This is a flimsy pretty little Dell. The keys are basically posh little buttons. I feel like a practical cinaedus to be honest. Typing polytonic Greek on it is also nightmarish let alone devanagari (which tbh I have no idea how to do properly anyway)

    How is Pali going btw?

    I have an Acer Aspire 7730 and that's exactly how you can use it! You could easily kill a grown man with mine. And keyboards are integral to successful typing :yep:
