Well, university looks okay so far. The other people on the course are surprisingly cosmopolitan, lots and lots of foriegners, which I quite like, also several psychology students, also good.

I have missed a 3 hour long seminar on the university's self-help courses today, starting at 9:30, feel I should have gone along, but I just couldn't face it. For heaven's sake, the seminar on Napier's major research projects tomorrow is only two hours! Well, half the course skipped the team building thing on Tuesday (which was actually a laugh) and it's not a critical part of the course. Still I'm kicking myself a bit because I really don't want to miss anything which might be important.

On the bright side, I'm looking forwards to lessons starting, and can't wait to get programming. I reckon now I know intelligence alone won't help me here, I've got a good chance.

You're back at uni? First I've heard about it, but good for you. What are you studying for? I take it from the above that it's something computer-related?

Yeah, Software Technology for the Web at Napier. Looks pretty good, and they've a hell of a rep.

> lots and lots of foriegners [...]

Yeah, Napier does a lot of work to attract foreign students. In particular, they have strong links with a huge school in Hyderabad, so there are lots of Indians. (I believe the Indian goverment actually sponsors students to study abroad, as well).

Best of luck with the course. I found mine (software engineering) very useful, and lots of fun... at least until the start of the dissertation!   8^P
