I might be saved. The lecturer suggested we read the 2000 past paper, since it was written by him, as will this one be. So I have. Every question (marked out of 20) awards at least (and typically) four marks for the first part, which is always "State what is meant by..."

Woohoo!

That means an automatic 20% just for learning those definitions (many of which I already know). From there, I need only a further 10% to pass, which means another 10 marks on the paper. In theory, I can get that on the first question, which will be on inner products, and if need be, I can get further marks on either some change-of-basis matrices, or some EigenStuff...

And Luke and John have both decided they've failed already, and have spoken to the sub-dean, who has informed them that they can either resit in September, or repeat the year. It seems easy enough, I have some details on it, so I'm not stressing too much...

Just had a fun time phoning Chris in Australia.... Bastard answered the phone with "Hello, Adjective Army Headquarters", which somewhat threw me off.... I had to explain to him that my room is the AA HQ, and that he was mistaken. We then had a discussion about who the AA belongs to. Naturally, it is mine.

Anyhow, I had to cut it short because phoning Australia is expensive, and also because I started talking with his infernal accent. He'd not have noticed it, because I'd still have sounded British, but I'm telling you, I slip into accents too easily. Up in Manchester I was talking with a slight northern inflection in my voice way too often, in Hull I really started losing my accent, and in America I also took on a lot of that accent. With Australian accents, it seems to only take half a minute on the phone. Icky... :o(

But still, fun... then I tried to call Kit, but he hung up on me, the bitch.... So I have nobody to bother :o(

.....because phoning Australia is expensive
- it is, isn't it.

Re: A skinflint comments....

Yes, it is expensive. But it's always fun to phone various people from my idiot army... In the past I've phoned America, Holland, .....

And it's only a quid or two...
