Dave is heading to college this fall. Registrations, in this modern age, take place via the internet, so on the morning that the registrations opened for his college, off he zoomed to the Dwight Library (they have high speed, we are still jumping up and down trying to get it to reach us here!) Here, Dave learned three important things.
1) Fast doesn't mean efficient. He could get onto high speed, but he couldn't get into the college website, due to traffic volume.
2) Patience is a virtue. He needs to work on this... when frustration levels reached critical mass, he went off to do something else before imploding, right there in the Library computer room.
3) Try, try again. Cleverly and correctly assuming that people with high-speed would be asleep in the middle of the night, he set the alarm, got up at 3 a.m., and with dial-up, surfed in successfully, registered for all his classes, and Got the Deed Done.
So he's good to go. Except for one small detail. We're going to miss him...
