How many people work at Uni/Colleges

Post by SometimesSean » Tue Jul 19, 2005 11:53 am

There seems to be quite a few, which one are you working at, which school/faculty/department and how busy are you? it's fairly dead in Coventry, I work in the School of Health and Social Sciences as an Classroom/Audio/Visual technical assistant although I do a Technicians job role :roll: The nursies are here all year round but everyone else (i.e all the fit ones) have gone home.

I work at Lancaster Uni as a Clerical Assistant in the Centre for Training and Development, which runs vocational courses for non-undergraduates etc.

Its pretty damn quiet here - i manage to spend at least %80 of my time on the net

BUT IM LEAVING ON THE 5TH AUGUST - WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:BADGER: :D

but, er... got no other job to go to and i've just bought a house, d'oh!

Had to quit this shitty place though - gets me really depressed/stressed out, even though i have no responsibility at all.

I work at the Uni of Greenwich in the Business School. I am a Postgraduate Coordinator and run 9 degrees, hence why its never quiet for me, as either dealing with current students term time or prospective students out of term.

Still have plenty of time to dedicate to NSB and all my other projects!

Today I watched bit's and bobs of a video about how we are made, starting from the creation of the egg and sperm up untill being born, I tell thee now I never in my life thought I'd see a baby being born from inside a woman, it all looks a bit messy imo :lol:

For the rest of the summer I'm gonna learn me Adobe Audition 1.5 as I have just got my hands on it for the Avid suite 8) I suppose the breaks in summer are what you make of it, worth taking advantage of if you have intersting stuff to do, I've just got to make sure I stay in that mind set cus it's really easy to become unmotivated.

I tried some experimenting in Audition earlier, flicking through the manual I found a filter called 'Central Channel Extraction' which apparently helps you lift out vocals, so I ripped off Middle Eastern Holiday by Hard-Fi onto the hard-drive and applied the filter to no avail. Could it possibly be that there is too much centralising going on in the track or is this tool not as effective as it sounds?

I'm doing my masters in Analytical, officially I'm studdying, but the reality of it is that I work in a research group for the university, I'm get paid for it so I guess its work. Is going ok at the moment as it looks like I'm gonna be a co-author on my first accademic paper! :D

But there aren't many fit girls about at the moment, not that I would be looking cos my girlfriend is staying with me at the moment! But aslong as the sun is shining even the rough ones look alright! :lol:
