I have popped back for a nosey aswell. I see Paul is back now he has grad and I know sharon looking in on the place once in a while, looks at what she wrote back in the day and hides from the embarrassment.

My update is I am in my 4th year of a five year MEng in Computer Science. I can't decide wither or not to leave uni after my under graduate course or continue on for a phd. It would be another 3 years before I left uni if I did that and I dont want to be that guy who never gets a real job but becomes a professional student. I have expensive tastes in cars and the like which need satisfying! The time has flown in really and I have to say uni is a good laugh and looking back I can see school was too restrained and structured for my liking.

In the unlikely event someone wants computer studies help I am always willing to answer.

If i am not here i am somewhere else

depends what you are going to be doing I guess. Luckily I have a year or so to wait so I am hoping its all blown over by then. I think most companies are still running grad programmes anyway since they will need talented fresh blood after forcing all the older more expensive staff out the door this year.

M&S told me I didn't demonstrate sufficiently resource management skills so I am considering other options.

Ahhh, good old HSN. Sad to see it's so dead really, it was a good banter back in the day.

Update: 3rd year of MA Economics and Philosophy at Glasgow Uni.

Good to see Dave and Brendan are still around. =D So, where were we? Oh yes, Socialism vs Capitalism!

Glad to see we're all a smart bunch really, keep up the good work everyone!

Well...I lasted a year and a bit doing Chemistry at Glasgow.

Dropped out and started working for BP M&S full-time.

Got promoted to manager.

Moved to Aberdeen with my marvellous girlfriend.

Offered job with Somerfield and then offered better pay with BP, so stayed with them.

Started Business Management (part-time) at RGU. Lasted 2 weeks.

Awaiting assesment for promotion (pretty much a dead-cert) and waiting for my store to be built!

And eternally wishing HSN would be like it was in the old days *sobs*

The interview was quite long: 45-50 minutes. Basically, she asked me lots of questions that typically come up when you google "interview questions". She didn't ask me directly about university or previous work experience. She was writing everything I was saying so there must have been about 8 pages when we were finished. There was also a role playing exercise (10 min followed by 10 min of Qs), a group discussion (50 min) and a poster presentation (10 min following by 10 min of Qs). At least they gave me 26 in transport expenses and free food. I am inclined to think my responses on how I would tell an employee he or she wasn't working efficiently were a bit lacklustre. Interesting experience though and at least I got two of the three boxes ticked.

I see there is a new "anti-terror" law prohibiting photography of police in the UK. What next?

what? no way! what are they police or gods??

Never been a fan of these new age interviews with team work and stuff but needs must i guess. In my part time job i do a lot of hiring and firing and dealing with employee performance its not much fun and it is even harder if you are having to deal with people who are your friends outside of work. Might try M&S myself next year we shall how things go

Hi, when I used to come here as a guest, I could open any chat topic, and see the first post, then all the new posts below it, in a nice, user friendly way, ie read them all on the one screen, one message below each other.

Now that Ive joined though, it seems to "compress" the reply topics, and you have to actually click into them one at a time to open the replies up, which is a pain ..

Am I doing something wrong, or has this all changed recently ?

Its probably just some setting somewhere .. can anyone help ?

Thanks

Karen

At the top of each thread, there's a button that says "Options" (it's inside the dark blue stripe).

When you click on it, you should get a menu with three different "Display modes" at the bottom - you want to pick "Standard" to get things back to normal smile.gif
