Once again, I'm complaining about the University - sorry to bang an old drum, but here goes...
For those of us who have had academic issues (or, if you're like me, you've just been a bit too lazy the last year) and have had to take resits during the summer before you can get your final degree mark, you probably already know the marks were decided at a board last Wednesday (or so I'm told).
The student portal, bane of my life, and the one thing I love to whinge about consistently, is clearly expressing its feelings of neglect on this otherwise romantically-saturated day by throwing yet another paddy, so once again instead of a student portal, we have error messages and lots of strange-looking numbers.
What a surprise - the student portal is once again offline. It's been up and down in seemingly equal measure for the last year.
I'm sure it's hard work to maintain the system as it appears to rely on several different database systems being operational and talking to each other, but surely the University could invest the time - and money - so that the IT bods can build a more robust solution?
