    While we're on the subject of adverts, does the coursework.info bot in the academic help section annoy anyone else? I only ever look in physics and maths, and it's annoying to see "Plagiarise your A-level or GCSE coursework!1!!!" irrelenvantly posted as a response to quantitative questions that don't get an immediate response.

    They're about 1 quid each, so I don't really fancy paying three times as much for packaging and postage.
    This shop is good if they have what you want. http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/default.php?cPath=777

    You don't have to pay postage and packing for the UK and they're in Jersey so you may not have to pay VAT (though I'm not sure about that, it's just a vague memory). They're also quick and reliable from what I've seen.

    Ryvitas smothered (separately) in cheese and taramasalata after gym is a near transcendental experience! :coma:
    [For the record: I don't diet! The ryvitas are just because I get really fed up of buying bread and using three slices before it dries out/goes mouldy]
    The only compromise to the transcendence is the racket (sp?) that my housemate and her boyfriend are making beneath me :dry: I'll be off the the library after feeding... :teeth:

    Speak for yourself. Tedium is not an experience I've ever felt while being at Cambridge! And they're watching a film and laughing very loudly :p:

    I love ryvita, I shall try that

    God, I think I nearly had a heart attack. I was trying to download endnote and my computer went mental. I tried to turn it off and switch it back on and it WOULD NOT COME ON. I have back ups of stuff but not off everything and not the stuff that I have been working on for the last few days (which included my dissertation.) Luckily it seems to be working once more.


    It was a very scary experience, however.

    I feared as much. Lol at 'wonder year' I'm not sure whether I ought to feel proud or horrified at being part of this year... Just buy one of their amazing pots of olives to snack on :love: Would you like to borrow mine? Its one of those adjustable ones with multiple bits.Sorry Tom. I have a rubbish memory. I do use firefox you know... :p:
    Proud :p:

    I've realised that unless I go into town within the next 30s or so there is very little chance that I will be able to do any work at all :o:

    And thanks for the offer, but I do need a little set of my own. Then again, if I can't find any for a reasonable price I may have to borrow yours :o: My friction pegs are becoming annoyingly unscrewed :dry:

    EDIT: Minimo, make more backups! Do it now :p:

    I really don't mind you having it on semi-permanent loan as long as you don't lose it! It was a present from my Uncle for Christmas - quite a good one, but I still don't expect to need it for awhile. And then you can bring your set from home up next term probably?

    Why is my Politics supervisor taking ages to respond to my emails? :mad: Had a supervision a week and a half ago. She told me she would send me an essay title that day. Didn't send anything till I pestered her on Wednesday, and then didn't send a specific title - she just said 'Do an essay on Kant'. I replied within five minutes of her sending the email asking for clarifiction - if she meant choose a title from the paper guide - and she hasn't bothered to reply :mad:

    Couldn't this be a good thing? Now you have a chance to pick your own custom-made essay about whatever you find interesting (or, failing that, easiest to understand) about Kant - better than working on a fixed title you don't like!

    Brim, if you haven't already, choose a question from the paper guide. She can't complain- if she doesn't clarify she has to take what she gets!

    Does anybody know what you're supposed to do with old broken phones? I can't be bothered to pay to fix them, and I think those charitable calls for old phones usually mean ones that still work :confused: If there is a charitable way to dispose I'd like to, but if not... they're not meant to go in the bin are they? :confused:

    BRIM!!! Calm down. What do you need? I can get you something from the Ward (Peterhouse) and you can give it back tomorrow?

    Yes, don't bin them! They're WEEE, and can't go in landfill.

    There are a lot of different recycling schemes around for them (some charitable), but otherwise I *think* that the shop you bought it from has to take it back and arrange to dispose of/recycle it themselves.
