Sorry I'll be a bit slow to respond over the next few days because I have do to things.

But there's something I really, really need to rant about. My school's enrollment period starts tomorrow and the portal is bleeding DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I access it on my phone, I even get redirected to a scam website. The really funny thing is that some people can access it without problems!

How messed up is that...

In university, you enroll in courses each semester through the portal, which is like an intranet which serves many purposes (e.g. paying fees, receiving scholarships, finding academic advisers, declaring majors and minors, booking facilities, etc.) Every year, there's a set time for you to register for the courses. You must prepare a list of courses to enroll in, then sit at the computer at the exact moment the enrollment period starts and press the 'enroll' button. You have to do this quickly, because otherwise, the courses will be full and you won't be able to take the courses you need/want.

The really annoying thing is, the portal is down for SOME people at the moment, including me. Some people can access it on the phone but not on the computer or vice versa; but for me, NEITHER WORKS. I'm really worried I won't be able to register on time tomorrow because that will be DISASTER. :(

When's the deadline? You could use someone else's computer or you could go to an Internet cafe or something?

Hope everything turns out okay!!

Thanks. We have almost a week for it, but the deadline really isn't important because if I don't register at 2.00pm sharp, I'll get rejected from many of the good courses. Probably I can only get in a few of the core courses they make sure everyone takes (phonetics, grammatical description). But I really, really don't want to be rejected from courses like phonology and optimality theory (the famous professor teaching these will be gone after next year) and the computer science introductory course (or I may not be able to major in CS because they keep rejecting me.)

I've booked a computer at the music library at school... hope that will work. (There goes a morning at the piano though...)

Don't worry about piano. I've updated our battle again so you have an extra two days to post. I'll do it again tonight to save you another few hours... Uni is more important in your case :)

Update... they postponed the enrollment period to Friday.

How *thoughtful* of them... Friday is registration day for freshmen and we're supposed to be helping them on that day...

Another update. Fortunately, the IT guys aren't as moronic as we thought... they actually listened to people's complaints and changed the date again. Woohoo!

Lol, I can only imagine everybody starting at their computer screen rapid-pressing refresh until the submit button is available.

Dunno if it's like this everywhere, but I've heard classes will just get extremely large and adjust based on how many people attend. It isn't like that in Hong Kong University?

Which is what happened, because the guys decided to postpone the announcement of the postponement until after some people had already started their enrollment periods.

Some classes can take in a few more if needed, but most classes are either unpopular (quantity demanded < quantity supplied) or do not have flexible quotas (quantity demanded > quantity supplied as a result).

Damn, now I got rejected from the computer science introductory course.

Being forced to take it in the second semester (and thus starting my second major even later) is bad enough, but the course has a time clash with optimality theory in the second semester!!!!

I am so annoyed right now.

That's harsh, why does HK University not fully adjust to what courses people select?

I wish I knew, but it seems that even the professors are powerless about this.
