I had my last exam of the semester this morning. That's 'had' in the 'it was scheduled', not the 'I have done' sense. Seemingly coincidentally, there was a fatality on the train lines this morning, when some clown decided that their last contribution to society would be to cause chaos on the train lines. 3000+ people were held up at Gordon Station as CityRail closed the line between Gordon and Chatswood, replacing it with bus services. This would all be well and good, except for the fact that the bus services didn't show up for an hour, and then had to drive through peak hour traffic.
Needless to say, I got to uni 45 minutes after the exam had started. University policy says that once an exam has started, you can't enter it -- i.e. don't be late.
I now have a Request for Special Consideration form, in the hope that I don't get penalised and receive an Automatic Fail for not showing up on time.
Did I mention how much I hate CityRail? Shit, they're constantly and consistently screwing up, and the fares are always increasing. I'd be happy with that if the service was getting better, but all they're getting better at is giving the commuters a good servicing.
Meanwhile, I'm going to drown some sorrows, then head off to the SLUG meeting tonight. Tridge is going to be there, so it should be cool. Then off to the pub for more sorrow riddance.
I've been really slack lately (well, just busy with work and uni) and put off a lot of things I want to do; beefmail, flotilla, a key-signing tool for the Palm, and some ideas i've had involving a 3D shell/environment and lots of eye-candy -- all these are on the back burner, which I'd really like to be working on. *sigh*
