So, I've mostly selected my modules... and I've found myself in one class with just 3 people, including myself.

Basically, Franz is the lecturer... and his course used to be compulsory. Now, it's not. So, due to a mix up in timetable slots, people went into his class, realised it was his and poured back out again, leaving 6 people in the first class. Today it was 3.

I could see the disappointment in his face... and it just struck me, it's not the first time it's happened to him.

A good few years back, he used to run a formal specification class, which also used to be mandatory... that or someone else ran it. Once people realised that it was him, and that it was optional, he was left with one or two people. That class was cancelled that year.

The problem is, it's not that he's a bad lecturer, although the fact that his voice doesn't really carry in lecture theatres doesn't help, but he taught an incredibly dry subject in 3rd year, so people don't want a repeat of that.

Now, he doesn't seem so bad, and I just feel like he's getting a bad break as a result.

I wonder if the module will even happen next year...

His course annoyed the crap out of me in 3rd year, his practicals were the most annoying 2 hours of the week. I *will* be avoiding his course in 4th year, but that's more out of not wanting to do it than anything else.

I remember trying to do that Formal Specifications course last year. There were only 3 of us, Me, Amna and someone else, Noami I think. We found out it was cancelled and went up to him to try to get him to run it. He said that he was revising the course and would do it next year.

Poor guy, he seems so nice.
