Caffeinated (3/10)



  1. I have a Thinkpad from 2003 that is still in great condition; however, it can only run on a cord now. The battery is the one shortcoming. In college, many of my friends had serious issues with their Dells, Acers, and Macs. Of course, these problems interfered with projects and assignments. I never had a single issue despite the advanced age of my faithful Thinkpad. I still use it as my "backup" laptop. That said, I'd recommend a Thinkpad if you're looking for something that is extremely reliable, tough, and well designed. Don't be fooled by its vulcan-like appearance--the shell is composed, in part, of carbon fibre.

    JackTripper, I freaked out a bit when I saw the letter. It's in a standard letter-size envelope; typical Gov't of Canada brown envelope. It's thin, just two pages inside mine.

    Thanks Bentharbour--congrats to you too! It would be interesting to see how many direct applicants there were this year; I'm sure, however, that there can't be too many direct applicants. My fingers are crossed for all those still waiting.

    I just got news up here north of Toronto. So relieved--I was successful! I'm an independent applicant. Good luck to those still waiting; hang in there.

    Yes, indeed; it does look as though it will be this Friday or the next. I applaud your sleuthing!

    Bentharbour, thanks for clarifying. I didn't even bother to check the actual source for context.

    "Results coming via Canada Post. Good luck!" If the above does not mean that they are going out this week, then what's the point of posting that paltry line on Twitter? We all know--bitterly, I might add--that the results are eventually coming via Canada Post.

    Cathaea--thank you--that's comforting news.

    I've been supplementing my SSHRC thumb-twirling with frequent visits to the doctoral SSHRC page. Folks there are speculating that news may not come out until May.
