Software errors at your fave institution getting you down?

Someone I know is going to Algonquin College in Ottawa, full time. They are also taking a French course, so they will be able to apply their new skills in the federal public service. French courses are for part-time students. Actually all the department’s staff are part-time or contract as well, but that’s probably not relevant here, or is it?

Algonquin’s computer system says that full-time and part-time are different: that no one takes both full time and part time courses. So my friend has two schedules – the full-time course schedule and the part-time course schedule, with one course on it. Anyone remember doing cut and paste to assemble paper documents? Yeah, that bad.

They do fix their software when they notice egregious errors, though. This term part time students can successfully register online for their French classes!
