Nerdy Specialist Banter

My first day at work in ECS Helpdesk consisted of mostly nerdy specialist banter*, though I did manage to help a student who couldn’t log on to a Mac for some unknown reason. Also whilst I was ‘off-duty’, I helped one of my friends who had just happened to pick the only faulty monitor in the room – it turns out it was a bad VGA cable, which Toby and I replaced promptly. The Helpdesk team has been emailed a request to attend an evening of light refreshments at an unspecified venue in order to team-build and discuss ideas — now this, I like the sound of. Strawberry Brothers’ cider for me please! I’m sure I will be more productive in the coming Friday as I saw my team leader busying about today.

Over the weekend I discovered a very interesting fact in the Wessex Scene newspaper which claimed that in a sex survey, only 4.6% of ECS students were virgins. Who said Computer Science wasn’t an arousing subject after all? And yes, I’m bordering censorship here, but it’s not as bad as some of the innuendos I’ve seen on some departmental hoodies!

By the way if you do come here, keep a look out for a lecturer called Julian Rathke. I guarantee you won’t find anyone else’s slides more fun and interesting to read. Of all the modules I’ve had so far, Advanced Programming definitely seems to go down the easiest, though in some ways, I am biased as I did do a lot of Java back in college. However, the slides are still humorous and informative. Of course there’s always Eric Cooke and his catchphrases.
…Can I have my First now, please?

Speaking of which, I will get my Semester 1 results this Friday. Watch this space.

* – I didn’t know that not knowing what a Companion Cube is could possibly cost you your job.
