My university has an online service that provides students with access to trivial things, such as their email (the ones the profressors use to contact you), your general course scheduale, your exam schedule, and your finance informations. You know, the real trivial stuff.
Well, this week is finals week. For one of my classes, we didn't know where our final was to be held until last Friday (the 5th). The professor sent out an email late on Friday with the exam time and location. Well, the IT's had the brilliant idea of updating the online service the week before finals.
Long story short, I go to check my email on Friday. I can't get in. I try to check my email on Saturday. I can't get in. I give them a call to see when it's going to be up. They automated voice said by Sunday at 6:00pm at the latest. I try to check email at 7 on Sunday. I still can't get in. I call again and they said to try access the exam schedual via the online services. I can't, because the ****ing system has information for 2009 only. Before this brilliant update, I could see my exam schedual (excluding the above class because a location had not been decided). But after, there is no information regarding the 2008 school year.
So thanks to the IT-iots, I was an hour late for my exam today. The exam time was 2 hours. And I was not the only one who came flying into the room an hour late. The professor couldn't allow extra time because the room was being used right after us. I have no idea what he is going to do regarding the grade, but I hope he grades those finals very, very lienently.
Sorry to all the IT's on BF, but, gggggggggrrrrrrrrrr, these IT-iots at the university aren't the brightest bulbs on the string.
edit: And now they have the email back up and working.
