No, I've never taken mine to a lecture either but they're especially handy for group work in the library as (at least at Plymouth Uni) there's no space for groups around computers and like you said there's often a fight to the death for them between about 9 and 5. I don't know what course your doing, but if it's just a load of essays this might not be such an issue. That said, I always did essays in the library alongside others (only our Business module had essays). It's nice to have the chance to bounce questions off others, and watnot.

The option that I've considered is getting a good Desktop PC for home, and then getting a Netbook or tablet to take around with me. The HP and Acer netbooks are pretty good for the price, they're really portable and have great battery life. If you're only using it for Uni applications you'll be fine. Then you'd have a desktop at home to do all the intensive stuff.

The bonus there is that you can constantly upgrade a desktop computer much more easily than you can a laptop, and you're also getting the best of both worlds.

Take pictures of things that probably aren't edible yet look tasty.

I would but I don't have the interwebz for stuff like this when I'm out of the UK, and I listen to too much Death Metal for a list like that. Also, I can't be arsed.

Do a death metal mix. Last time hardly anyone did modern rock stuff anyway. I'm considering doing 20th century classical (maybe) which is probably even more alienating than death metal

I'm not Australian, but Australian Day seems even more of a '**** you' to indigenous peoples than Thanksgiving in America does based on what I've read. I'd definitely be that guy on Australian Day. >_>

It's colloquially referred to as "Invasion Day" by "those guys".

I worked. Not that I really care about Australia day. I just think it's an opportunity for pseudo-patriots to get shitfaced - an attitude which I loath.

The same goes for music festivals, in that people go half for the music and half to get drunk most of the time

Australia really has nothing to be proud of. Usually History is taught in schools to instill a bit of patriotism, but Australian history is almost nothing but racism. We haven't been in anything interesting on a global scale, we don't have any documents to be proud of like the First Amendment of the US, and we really don't have any heroes like Lincoln to show us how awesome people from our country can be.
