Today was the day I was to register for my courses. Now at first, everything went well. I had successfully registered in 4 fall courses and was about to put in a fifth one when the Central website stopped working. I spent the next 90 minutes trying to get back online but despite my best efforts I kept getting a page that simply read "This Page Does Not Exist." I called Carleton to find out what was going on. Turns out the website crashed and was down for awhile. Amazing isn't it. They spend all this money for this great website that is suppose to make registering easy and yet it can't handle a small section of the student population whose student cards have the last two digits of 75-83.

Finally, after much frustration, the website came back and I was ready to continue. But then, just as I am about to finish my fall schedule a great big rainstorm causes the power in my building to go out and remained out for a good ten minutes. I almost threw my computer out the window.

What was suppose to take maybe 30 minutes took three hours. I have all my courses ready to go. Thank God this is my last year and I will never have to do this again. (knocks on wood). One thing is for sure. I bet I was not the only one who wasted a beautiful afternoon cursing Carleton Central.
