    Yeh I didn't really hold any hope about finding such an option (other than wishful thinking) until this morning when my friend said she got in easily regularly.

    I don't object to libraries keeping other members out, obviously. Except my own. That's the problem :dry:

    Here's a thought. Do you suppose John's cancel the access granted by old buttery cards when you leave? 'Cos I still have mine, and that used to open the library door 24hrs. Getting into John's is no problem - the main gate is open very very late (maybe 24 hr, I never had occasion to test it beyond about 3 or 4 AM) and I never got stopped by a porter to check I was a member in three years of going in and out. If my buttery card still works I could post it to you.... (and I have a feeling it might because they made a big point of wanting us to hand them in when we left - I guess they just destroy them physically rather than go to the effort of changing the electronic access stuff so they don't work anymore). Couldn't hurt to try, anyway.

    I would have a word with your parents - Week 5 is very bad timing for a birthay. Mine were very considerate and thus my birthday coincided with the start of term, and nobody had anywork and could come.
    :rofl: :rofl: Hehe. Right, to read for modernity!

    Glad you had fun! I considered dropping in, but I've had a really stressful day realising exactly how much work needs to be done in the next 4 weeks and realised I'd be more psychologically balanced if I stayed in my room :tongue: Good luck with the Modernity...

    Oh and Beck is crap. I think they usually ask two questions on Modernity in the paper... often one where Globalization and Modernity overlap.. so if you don't like him focus on other less annoying reading and skip him in the exam.

    Is this Beck as in Ulrich, the risk society guy? I remember finding him vaguely useful, for my Env. Hazards module...

    minimo: a friend from Peterhouse is playing a lead role in Iolanthe. I'm afraid I have way too many difficult choices this week, and if I do go to any plays, Film Night and Sophrosyne would certainly take priority.

    Yeh that's the one. Its grappling with his whole theory that's not so fun. Massively uninspiring.

    Habermas on the other hand... :flute:

    w00t! Finished reading for tomorrow. Tempted to make a start on the Ha Joon Chang that never happened before I get sleepy.
    Tomorrow I have the joy of stressing about an imminent supervision essay and an imminent draft deadline for this term's assessed essay when neither of them have a matching booklist :motz: And the questions are along the lines of 'summarise the whole discipline in 2500 words'! :awesome:

    Except me :rolleyes: I'm only sociable because the internet is near my books :tongue:
    You guys are kinda making me wish I went, but looking at my upcoming supervisions... :no:

    Obviously including you, since I've met you :rolleyes:

    Psychological studies have shown that internet socialisation can be just as powerful as face to face socialisation anyway.

    By the way, the Admin team made a mistake in trying to remove ukebert from the Forum Assistant usergroup. He's currently accidentally banned from all forums other than AAM, and is sulkily doing his lab reports.
