The harpist's curse lilly, I do it all the time. It's even worse when my nail clippers decide to take some of my skin with them :)

It's taken me all these years to get used to having short nails :) before I started playing harp I always had very very long nails.

More annoying things. I sat down to polish up my report about Tara today, all ready to finish it and celebrate...half of it was missing, it obviously didn't save last time I did any :cry: Did you guys in America hear me screaming? :|

I'm very sorry that this happened! I hope that you can still remember a lot of what you have written.

Oh no, Grania! That is awful! I hate it when that happens. What a shame. Good luck working on it! ((((((((G))))))))

(((((((((((((((Grania)))))))))))))))) That is the absolute worst thing to have happen while you're trying to be productive. Absolutely brutal. I feel for you. It happens to everyone sooner or later, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating!

(((((((((((((((G)))))))))))))) Oh the joys of technology! I've had a rough experience with my computer lately, too, if it's any consolation.... :roll:

Hope you managed to get it sorted. Sounds as if it's a good job I haven't been around as a distraction..... :wink:

Awww that's sooo frustrating, Grania! I hope you remember what kinds of things you wrote down eventually.

I just had a look at the schedule of the next semester at uni and it's filled with gaps! It so annoying. I rather go home earlier than sit at uni for hours and don't do as much as I would do at home. My group was also the only group with gaphours last semester and this semester I have a lot of gaphours again. Why can't I ever have a schedule without gaps? My schedules sucked at highschool, they suck almost as much at uni. I know I can do work in those hours, but most of the time I end up chatting with friends anyway, even if I try to work. That's just what happens when people come sit where you sit. Guess I'll have to visit the 'silence' areas more this semester.

((((((((((everyone))))))))) Thanks guys. Fingers crossed I should have this all wrapped up tomorrow - and I contrived to put in two title pages, the second one with a picture of Tara and quote from Moya on it...that's all on the page, but it made me feel better :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Die-hard Moya fan? Me? Whatever gave you that idea? :lol:

*Ahem*

*Looks pointedly at G's number of posts*

No further evidence required. The prosecution rests, your Honour!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

Sounds as if you've managed to sort it, though, G. I'm sure it'll be fine. Just don't forget to educate the lecturer if he/she has the audacity to ask who Moya is!!! :wink:

Did you think I wouldn't????? But she's a pretty educated lady :lol: I have every faith in her. She knew Clew Bay when I talked about it :D

I agree with you that gaps are annoying! I had a lot of them when I went to school. Now that I have much more freedom with the timetables, I have less of them. I never work very efficently then because there aren't any silent workplaces. I'll be glad if I find a chair to sit on and try to ignore the noise. But who knows what next semester will bring, I wait for the new lecture timetables eagerly.

I had my timetable arranged at one faculty and I arranged it myself at the other, and in both cases those gaps seemed rather inevitable :( usually I would go to the bar downstairs to eat something or sometimes a couple of friends and I revised some material we were supposed to study together. But I agree that concentrating in such cases is really hard. Even if I wanted to spend that time in a library doing some research I always kept checking the time so that I wouldn't be late for the following class.

team work via email really is annoying!!! :x have I mentioned that already?

My timetable is across 2 subjects, so I've no idea how it's going to come together :shock:
