    I'd imagine that's because it's only October folks. Expect the opening house to be extended around Christmas time and the again around March, just in time for the end of year exams and such.

    Last year at this time (mid-October) the reading room was definitely open - I had the misfortune of being in there a few nights! :D

    The amount of absolute BOTHER of having to gain access to the wireless network in UCC is beyond crazy. They definitely need to switch to a free, public wifi type arrangement. Wow.

    That's how it was in my old University and things were fine. This is way OTT.

    It only took me about 5 minutes to fill in the form thing online, and then another 5 to bring it down to the lads in the Boole basement

    Its not feasible with the location of UCC, given the huge number of residential areas around the college. If they left it open, the amount of people getting access to it would be ridiculous

    It only ever took me 15 mins tops to get sorted initially, then every year it's a five minute job to renew it

    Managing a delightful balance between academia and lushing. I've got that feeling, that beat boy feeling. :cool:

    You can, but only on the newer versions of android as far as I know! I had a phone with Android 2.1 last year and I couldn't get it connected. This year I have android 4.0.1, and that works!

    Checked out my hard copy and it looks like the problem was one of the modules was down as weeks 5-11 on the website instead of 5-9, 11, and then that was showing up as a lab and 2 lectures on Monday on my timetable.

    Yeah, our ceremony was at 3.30, so had photos after it. No, not giving up modding here, thinking about coming home next year to do a masters.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,840 ✭✭✭Luno


    Was sitting in New Bar today and looked up at the graduations being shown on a projector and a girl in the front row stood up, opened her gown and started to pull down her skirt. Wonder if that was any of ye :P

    Congratulations, although avoiding walking into people's graduation pictures was like walking through a minefield. I had 'Nam flashbacks. :pac:

    The campus internet is starting to grate me again... it's blocked pretty much all online TV links... pain in the ass for those of us who live within UCC wifi and need it to survive! :( Does anyone know ANY way around removing this whole ''stream cannot be found'' thing?

    I can understand why the blocks are on, but can they not take them off between 6pm and 8am? College shuts down between those hours and feck all people are around using the wifi. It's actually crazy :(

    But outside of 8 and 6, most of the traffic would be gone so the internet wouldn't be under that much of a struggle as it would during the day ya know? I get a lot of people have to work after hours etc, but a good bit of the traffic will have died down so it's not that slow etc.
