Academic season back in full swing, and the first round of assignments almost done. I just have one project bulls^Wwaffle^Wproposal left to write, and then I can breathe freely for a bit.

The project I'm doing is maths-related, which might come back to bite me in the butt, but it involves lots of programming, which is why I chose it. The only problem is that I don't know too much about what I'm 'sposed to be doing yet... after a looong stretch of radio silence and a series of unanswered emails I finally got hold of my project leader on the phone, to find out what was going on. "Hey! Wassup!" says I (diplomatically, of course). "Oh," says the lecturer, "I've been away at workshops, I'm sorry. I'm a bit behind, I have 1,200 unread emails in my Inbox."

I don't know what the appropriate response is to that. I'm not renowned for staying on top of my correspondence, but someone who's let 1,200 emails pile up and just blithely admits to it... that's a bit untidy. Kinda shakes the foundations of modern society, if you know what I mean.
