Hook a brother up
To the Editor:
Currently I am sitting in one of my “exciting” classes,
and the professor keeps referring to lecture notes found on
the web. Normally, I would have printed them off before I came
to class, but the genius decided that posting them 30 minutes
before class was adequate.
Professors who actually take sufficient time to prepare a
lecture are hard to come by, so I addressed this dilemma by
spending a whack load of my beer money on a wireless laptop.
Now I find that the bonehead “Network Support Staff” have
neglected to supply the Social Science Centre with wireless
I am in this building for six straight hours (only two days
a week), and it is home to probably the biggest student body
on campus. Why isn’t there wireless Internet here? Buildings
such as Talbot College have reception, while newer buildings,
such as the addition to the Engineering Building, do not! How
did the music and arts students get wireless priority over
the administrative and commercial studies students in the SSC?
This is not to say they should take away wireless privileges
from those lucky bastards whose flutes have a better chance
of surfing the web than my bitchin’ new laptop.
Just to top it all off, I had to get off my ass and walk this
letter to The Gazette office. I SHOULD have been able to just
e-mail it… oh wait, I can’t get a signal.

To the Editor:
As students, we are getting ripped off. We stand by and watch
as our tuition increases year by year.
As a student I have to “accept” the fact that
tuition will increase every year until I graduate, but what
I can’t understand is why certain privileges like selling
our books at the Used Bookstore seems to cost me a lot of money.
I buy my books with gold and sell them for crap.
Since we don’t get a lot of money back for our books,
the Used Bookstore should lower the percentage of commission
they take on selling them. A student’s life is not a
luxurious one, so a little extra cash will not do them any
harm come bill time.
