The CS dept seems to have become inutterably inept over the summer. It's insane!

lol, just as I come into the department... :p
Maybe they're under the influence of Hugh Brady's rebranding (aka. destroy UCD in one go) shite...

Actually yes. The Department of Computer Science is competant, but the School of Computer Science and Informatics is barely ept to put on its shoes.

Oh so much crap! Apparently one maths lecturer was expecting his module to be a compulsory module for compsci students, except it wasn't on our timetable. So he complained to one of the CS lecturers who sent word back to us. We complained that it wasn't on our timetable. Of course, our student advisor, who set our timetable is nowhere to be found, and apparently hasn't been for the last 2 days!

This was fixed with Joe Carthy (the head of third year) running around and coming into our lecture theatre and telling us that we didn't have to take that branch of maths.

Of course now, I'm trying to go to the CS website and it's dead for some resaon - the reason being that I wanna get Joe's email so I can mail him about taking 3 optional modules instead of 2. Because right at the moment, there is no way I can drop Graphics (Hamish rocks), and I don't wanna drop Networks (it's useful) but if I don't take AI it severely limits 4th year options as about 6 4th year modules require me to have taken AI. Of course, in order for me to learn anything, I'll need to have done practicals in all of them.

Gah, I dislike CSI:UCDD Dublin :P
