I’m not going to lie – I don’t like Macs. I don’t like the format and I don’t see how they’re ‘easier to use.’ I’m a fan of PCs – I love them. Well, up until today I loved them, now my vote is starting to go towards the direction of Apple Computers – The Mac.
In order for me to register for next semester had to find out what classes I’ve already taken at NMSU. That’s presents a problem when you can’t talk to your advisor face to face. My advisor told me about the STAR Degree Audit check – an online service that will tell you exactly what you still need to graduate. PERFECT!
Perfect, that is, if you can get to the site. I tried logging in from my laptop and about 5 other computers around campus – NONE of them would work…I just kept getting the stupid ‘page cannot be found’ page. It was frustrating me. Then I had an idea; there was one room of computers I had yet to try…the macs.
Well what do you know, it let the page come up and I was able to log in and check my progress. Turns out Macs are good for something, this little adventure has made me think more fondly of the computers I usually want to kick. Actually…my loathe for them reminds me of the scene in Office Space with the fax machine…that’s how much of a fan I am of them. And there’s more good news! I’m not as far behind in school as I thought I was! I’m still pretty sure I’ll be at NMSU for more than another year..but it’ll be worth it.
Oh. More computer problems before I go. I tried to download the newest episode of Alias this afternoon – if you know me at all you know that’s my favourite show and I hate missing it – and it wouldn’t download at all. The school has gone and put up this gigantic firewall. NOT A HAPPY CAMPER!!!
To leave this on a happier note – I’m leaving tomorrow for London. I think I’m pretty much packed…well I hope I am at least! I guess we’ll find out. I tried to ‘pack light’ whatever that means…I’m a girl – come on! I’ll try to post tomorrow before I leave, but if I don’t – then I’ll be back in a week and a few days!
p.s. happy st. patrick’s day!!!
