    I hate to distract from the political debate, but I have another question. In 2004, I was able to pay my fees off in two parts, firstly at enrolment and then the rest within the next fortnight. Is this still possible? Unsurprisingly, the website doesn't seem to mention it.

    Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone knows what the annual fees are for a 3rd year Arts student. 1st year was $577 and 2nd $481, but the amount is suppose to decrease further. If anyone knows the exact amount, thanks.

    Undecided on which HSTY course to take..

    Yeah. I also had Julie as a tutor, and she has very high expectations. Worse, she makes the tutorials rather boring. They were more about spoonfeeding than any actual discussion. Attempts to raise points were shot down rapidly. The course may be different with this other lecturer, but there's...

    :( While Ulysses does require some effort to properly appreciate, it is by no means impossible. One of my very favourite books. An endlessly open source of meaning. This usually isn't mentioned, but it is also a very funny book, when you get into it. Jokes abound, as do elements of almost...

    That isn't a bad thing. Full of idiocy, that post is.

    Semester 2 exam failures

    I'm not saying that if you think you did poorly, you'll end up topping the subject. That was just my pessimism and luck. You can do well without topping the subject. :)

    George Orwell (1984)

    I'd actually agree about 1984 being misinterpreted. The main problem is that the text critiques all forms of totalitarianism, rather than specifically attacking Communism. Where this becomes problematic is in many readings of the text, which is perceived as attacking not only Communism as...
