At least one of my lecturers is lovely and has offered to replace all the notes, even the ones I never had in the first place because I was off sick.

Cleaners open and re-lock all rooms. Every night...and if they weren't locked, they will be when the cleaners leave!

The Sheriff?? Stoopid in-jokes. Stoopid Accountants.

Things I Hate About UL:
* car parking or lack there of...
* the bloody rain
* people who refuse to go anywhere but the Lodge...ever
* people who think they can slag off Limerick just because they're now in college here
* people who like to blame crime on the people who have been re-housed in Castletroy (don't get me started on that one)
* shop queues
* yore ma

Yeah, so I'm thinking the cleaners probably took it out of the room and left it outside and some student picked it up, dumped my notes, and made off with a brand new folder for themselves.

I hate the library.

By the way, if books are on Store Level are they down stairs when you first go in the library? I have an irrational fear of that place with it's freaky head statues but now I need a load of books from the Store Level and I'm assuming it's down there. *Shudder*.

I wouldn't be asking any of them to escort me down to a dark room. They might get ideas.

Business and german student actually.

Even though getting parking space can be a real pain, its a hell of a lot better than any other university in ireland for spaces.

Totally agree with ya on the lodge though, got sick of that place after the 1st week.
City centre all the way

Again, the library. Please, can someone tell me why it is the best place to have a gossip? **** somewhere else, please and thanks.

Also, why haven't the printers been working all week? How hard is it to fix a bloody printer? I thought they were fixed by now but I'm behind about twenty people waiting for stuff to print as it keeps jamming.

Edit: Now it has no toner. *cancels print jobs and goes to other printer*

Edit Number 2: FORTY SEVEN PAGES?!?! Is my lecturer having a bloody laugh? How do I convert pdf to powerpoint so I can put this crap into handouts?

I hate people talking in the library too! People are trying to do work!!!!!!!

Afaik the printers all around college have been down for ages, some reports saying since last Friday

U can print PDF's in handout form too, with 4 - 6 pages per page...It is still very readable.

Probably too late now but in Adobe Acrobat:

File => Print

In the window that pops up find the Page Handling section and from the Page Scaling drop down select the Multiple pages per sheet option and configure it as you wish. As Mossin said it's quite readable if you can get access to a printer that does duplex printing you can fit 4 pages per A4 sheet.
