Masters of Technology – Day 1

Well, today’s the day.

I’ve had to get up at the crazy hour of 9:00am to make it to my first lecture (and only contact time for today) at 11:30am.

I made it… 5mins late, but I need to explain that. I stopped off to catch-up with @mattdelves at the Swinburne CU (other link) stand. No I’m not going to blame Matt that I was late, it was my fault. I was trying to get my Wireless access for Uni active, an cos I didn’t have access, I was getting him to look up the instructions for me. It didn’t get sorted, and I was 5mins late.

My first Lecture was for “Internet Technologies” which briefly translates as Why the Web and Internet are different, and why there are no current textbooks for this subject. Still couldn’t get internet access working… Interesting Intro lecture. The lecturer, Ken McInnes, pointed out that because the internet is always changing, so does the course. I started setting up Schoolhouse It seems to be a great program… If you are diligent with it. I’ll see how it goes.

I got my wireless working (that’s how I’m doing this at the mo.) by visiting a computer lab under the library (no it’s not dark and dingy, like in The IT Crowd), and getting one of the resident geeks to help me out.

Well I’m done for the day, and writing this. Tomorrow I get a MASSIVE break from 11:30 till 4:30… *sigh*

  1. What ho old chap! Sounds smashing! You can do elevenses at 11.30- Pimms and Lemonade on the lawn. Then go for a picnic or a row! Oooh cucumber sandwiches and lashings of Ginger Beer…

    Ah the life of a student… So when do you become a resident geek :p
