    Looks like 15 wards are infected with norovirus, so all 4th year clinical teaching is suspended indefinitely. *grumble*

    To be fair, the reason Peterhouse rents went up that much is that a rent freeze from several years ago expired this year.
    Ah - I didn't know this, thanks. And thanks for the insight Tom.

    tbh most of them, especially in michaelmas, just write the same generic comment for basically everyone. Either that or they have a stock of 2/3 comments ranging from excellent-good-crap and then just pick and choose one depending on your performance/how much they like you.
    :ditto:
    In my case Lent is the only term that will indicate anything at all, as I have had all of my supervisions of the term effectively in the last two weeks, for one of the papers I have a different supervisor for each different essay (so six throughout the year) , my assessed essay is due on Thursday, so the mark won't be known till next term, and much of my work/research is taking place over Christmas :rolleyes:

    After your complaints all term about long, weary days in the wards, I'm not inclined to feel overly sympathetic :p: What is this 'norovirus' thing anyway? :lolwut:

    "Even the most persistent undead ought to stay decently buried under that amount of traffic"

    (yes, I am reading Pratchett as an intermittent distraction from trying to edit the contributions of my fellow group members into a somewhat coherent essay on international environmental law. I HATE group assessment - it would have been so much quicker and easier just to write the whole damn essay myself. Which I am now essentially doing, but trying to leave just enough of their content in it that it still counts as group work and the person assessing it won't get suspicious...)
    Reaper Man I was reading that last week, 3 for 2 offer on fiction inspired me to buy 3 pratchetts :o: Wish I had more though, finished them

    Mine: This is, however, not true at the edges and Fig. 3.21 shows an accurate plot of the field near the edge of a parallel plate capacitor.

    Bring it up with the JCR, and let them liase with college. Even with your college's JCR track record witch college-student communication, I'm sure they can still get the correct channels involved.

    You, as am individual, will be pretty powerless when approaching the senior tutor, unless it's about personal finance issues...
    You're probably right there Thanks for the advice.

    On an unrelated note, I'm loving this status game thing that's sweeping the Cambridge network on facebook:

    Rules:
    * Grab the book closest to you. Now.
    * Go to page 56.
    * Find the 5th sentence.
    * Write that sentence as your status.
    * Copy these instructions as a comment to your status.
    * Don't go looking for your favourite book, or the coolest one you have -- just grab the closest one.
    I tried to play, but unfortunately page 56 of Mankiw's Macroeconomics is completely blank.

    :^^: If you were a sub you would be able to see a shell or two of deleted posts, from copying the content and adding it to one. It all depends on how much time I have and how fast TSR feels like being on the day.

    Anyway, the real Craggy is off to grab some food and immerse herself in the offline depths of her laptop in the library :dry:

    That sounds like my day. And same for the tap water, it really doesn't look great.
    Still, hopefully I can finish my work before going to see the Freshers Panto. :yep:

    No, it's to subsidise the running of the kitchens for hall - i think they're quite expensive places to run overall - hence the reason school canteens all over the country were closing down a few years ago. If it were for the gyp rooms i'd be expecting rather alot more than a cupboard with 2 hobs and a sink in it... :rolleyes:
    Hmm, ours are just for gyp rooms, and mine hasn't even got hobs this year...

    It's a viral gastroenteritis- the 'winter vomiting' bug. It's pretty benign (2-3 days of projectile vomiting + (?explosive) diarrhoea, self-limiting)in the otherwise healthy individuals but it can be pretty devastating on the wards. It's pretty contagious, which is why the 4th years are being kept away from the clinical areas. We can easily transmit it from a 'dirty' ward or clinic to a 'clean' ward. It's one of the most common viral illnesses, behind the common cold.
