Whatever your problem is, it's probably my fault.

I'll have to look into that.

I ended up doing something with my non-work project after all. It was fun.

I am spending the weekend watching TV.

This sounds like a good idea. I don't have cable, but I might see if I can get all the episodes of Mad Med that I haven't seen yet off iTunes.

I don't actually have a TV.  If you have a prime Amazon membership, a lot of their instant videos are free.

if you don't, you should.  It's a free perk for the first year if you register with them as a student.

Really?  That is great information.  I am going to have to pass that along to my sister.  She will appreciate it, so thank you!

Hate to continue derailing the thread, but I'm on my third "free" Prime membership.  Most unis either let you change your .edu address (or set up an alias), or just have multiple emails (for example, I can be reached at daedalus@servername.daedU.edu, daedalus@daedU.edu, and daedalus@mydept.daedU.edu, aside from any personal aliases).  You just sign up again, and you get Prime (sans the Kindle library, which is only for paying Prime members).

This is brilliant.  I knew something good would come out of the fact that my university gave me two email addresses!

Same here; in the US one for the department I use for class correspondence and one for my research institute I use for research correspondence, and then I have a .ac.uk address as well.

All of the ones I know do this silly thing. This Amazon thing is the only utility I've ever found for it.

I have different email addresses that send mail to one inbox (so cbd@chaosu.edu, cbd@cu.edu, cbd@xmail.chaosu.edu and cbd@zmail.chaosu.edu all go to the same inbox). I may also get another one soon. I only give out one email address to people to make things simpler, and I'm not exactly sure what the point of having all the different emails is, unless it's to increase the chances of email actually getting to me if people f*ck up the address.

The finals are done!  All three went much better than I expected.  I'm pretty sure I'll get Bs in two of them due to poor midterm scores, but I'm hoping for an A in the third one.

Yay, ScienceGrad!

I have all my results now, A's and one B+. I'm happy with that, and even more happy that there are no more classes until fall.

All papers are turned in and classes are over.  Tonight I have my final presentation for my group culminating project from my very last degree.  I promise, I'm really not going back for another. 

I am really, really looking forward to tomorrow.

Well I ended up getting a B in the class in which I was expecting an A.  But I also passed the course with the bad midterm grade.  Funny how a B in one case feels like a huge letdown and a cause for celebration in another.
