i've been angry before, sometimes i could even have been described as being very angry...

tonight, however, i am livid; incandescent with rage! furious is not a strong enough word. pissed off doesn't come close to describing the searing wroth pumping coursing through my veins!

in fact, the effort required not to destroy this keyboard in the process of writing this entry is display of will power i wasn't aware i was capable of.

my piece of shit university have given me two coursework assignments for the cisco element of the degree. one is tantalisingly close to containing sufficient information for me to be able to actually do the fucking work.

i say tantalisingly close, what i actually mean is it contains everything i need except the vital information : network addresses, number of subnets, routing protocols & dce/dte information.

the other one contains this line of text "This is a Cisco based module. The course works are available on-line and set externally."

which is not only the vaguest communication i've received from the university of hip hop, it's also fallacious to the point of the ridiculous: There is nothing on the cisco site, the lecturer's page for the module has a pdf named "Coursework," which i'm guessing actually has the information i need, except it's fucking encrypted. and we've not been told the bastard's password, so it serves only to enrage me more. it might as well not be there if we, the students, can't fucking access it!!

how the fuck am i supposed to submit coursework if i don't know what it is i'm supposed to be doing?!!

jesus fucking christ!

thanks to all you who wished me well with the exam. my performance was none too shabby, finished in 45 mins. then set out to enjoy the weather...

i rode over to clapton, took in the sights of the lea valley & springfield park then bimbled around the backstreets before tootling back via finsbury park.

just played around quickly with google maps and discovered it was a ride of some 17miles!

so, much to my dismay, it was closed book...

still, i managed to get 74.4% having only revised 80% of the syllabus. which is well weapon :]

now all i've got to do is learn oracle by monday and packet tracer and associated real world router configuration by tuesday. and find the time to celebrate the birthdays of kai et al.

right, time for exam #3... i hope to christ it's open book.

that was not fun.

wrote 11 pages, so probably scored around 70-80%... which ought to mean high sixties overall.

my fingers hurt

today i have mostly been learning the material needed for my exam tomorrow.

am quietly confident about it... hopefully it won't prove to be unfounded

so, a full 24hrs has passed since my exam, and i still can't feel the tips of my thumb, index and middle finger... this is worse than the playstation thumb i got from playing tony hawks at spoox's place.

i wonder if i can sue :/

still, it's lovely and damp outside; a nice sheen of water lies glistening on the busy london streets. it seems only fitting that today, with this most inauspicious weather, is the day i get the fixietron back from being repaired.

there's a very real chance this may be the last livejournal entry i make :]

sat my business information systems exam yesterday...

it was as intolerable as i was expecting. stil, hopefully my less haste method of exam preparation will pay off once again. now all that i've gotta do is catch up on 2 days of work and complete an entire assignment by friday.

oh, and pack all my stuff at the old place up and move it to the new flat.

...and sort out student finance for the coming uni year before it's too late to get it processed in time for the start of term.

today i am busy busy bumblebee :/
