Talking Out Of School

The lovely IT folks at the Uni decided to do this massive server upgrade at the end of the second summer session.

I'm sure that this made a lot of sense when they thought it up.

Trouble is, lots of stuff fell down a rabbit hole during the process.

No summer grades (at least for the class that I took).

No email.

No syllabus available for the class that starts on Monday.

Like I said, I'm sure this sounded like a good idea....

...at the time.

Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before

Well....it's happened again.

Class begins in a week and there is still no syllabus posted for the course that I'm taking and I just got an email from the professor telling me that I'll need two more books and about six DVDs for class.

Why in blazes have I not been given this information looooong before now?
