    worth appealing group marks?

    I had an assessment recently with possibly the worst group ever assembled in the history of university group assessments. I ended up doing 50% of the work (in a group with 5 people [and I did all the most important parts by myself]), not because the other people in my group didn't do any work...

    Today's Lesson

    When you are going somewhere people don't expect you to be... be obvious about it... walk loudly or slam doors or something..... Today I came downstairs to find my dad (who is married to my mum) hooking up with a friend (who is also married). I don't know if there is some kind of explanation...

    Sick of Windows Taskbar

    Playstation 2 Game Protection

    I heard that some ps2 games have some sort of new protection on them that means they won't run on a ps2 with a mod chip. Since having a mod chip is now legal in Australia isn't that some sort of fair use violation by the company that makes the game?

    I came back from holidays and the power was off. My AC Adapter for my laptop was plugged into the powerpoint. Now it isn't working. So do I need to get a new one, or will leaving it unplugged for a while fix it?

    Exam Parking

    I know this has been done before, but I can't find a straight answer in any of the previous threads. So can someone tell me what's the deal with exam parking. Can I park in the red parking zones without a parking permit?

    So this woman is walking around, speaking in a foreign language and saying she wants to go back to another country and she so she gets deported. Now she expects compensation. People need to start taking responsibilties for their own actions, whether or not they were in some way impaired or...

    bad parents

    I just saw some little kid on the news who was found wandering round the streets of Sydney and after 4 hours still no one has contacted the police. If the parents aren't dead or trapped under huge boulders they need to be thrown in jail because thats incredibly irresponsible.

    Public Transport

    Every time I pick up the paper there is something about encouraging people to take public transport instead of driving or increasing public transport systems instead of improving roads. This would make sense if public transport in Sydney wasn't so bad and didn't cost as much as it does. Until we...
