What is a Hackathon?

Is it just a bunch of nerds sitting in a dark room trying to hack into MI6? Absolutely not. Well who knows, I’m not ruling that out as a possibility. A hackathon is where people from all walks of life get together in a common place over a certain period of time to work on a project. They often get a theme or topic to work with, and will be required to present or pitch their project at the en...

Force Block

At this busy time of year you’d be forgiven for not having had time to see the epic new Star Wars movie yet. While we’re sure you’ll be in the cinemas shortly, it’d be devastating to have it ruined by some filthy internet troll beforehand....

My Week with Kim

From the first time I saw Kim Jong Il’s circular face splashed across the media I was intrigued by the socialist, dystopian society he was in command. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, or North Korea as it is commonly known to the outside world; was established after the Japanese Colonial Empire annexed the Korean Peninsula in 1910; and the Soviet Union occupied the area above the 38th pa...

Nine types of exam procrastination

With exams and major assignments just around the corner there’s no doubt that us students will find as many ways as possible to avoid preparing for them. We are all guilty of setting out to smash a 2000 word essay and accidently tripping over on the way to your desk, landing on the couch, faced with no real option but to watch the TV screen in front of us. Procrastination is a special way of maint...

Weekly Uni Deal

I’ve thought long and hard about what to pick for the inaugural “Uni Deal of the Week,” and I think you’ll be pretty stoked with what I’ve found. Deal: All you can eat Buffalo Wings.

Five ways to pretend you’re not eating alone

Let’s face it; sticking to a regular university timetable is about as likely as doing optional readings. On the rare occasion you’re actually on campus, there’s really no way of knowing which of your mates are going to be around. Eating lunch by yourself is a familiar and inevitable notion, so here’s a few ways to show you’ve actually got m8’s. The phone call We’ve all got that one mate that is ne...

7 Annoying People at the Library

There aren’t many places you can go these days to get a quiet timeout. Apart from the ever-increasing pressure on Uni students to get good grades, this is probably the reason finding a seat at the library is harder than studying itself. You finally find an empty seat on the silent level. After some final procrastination in setting up your books, filling your water bottle and taking one last glance...

Butter Chicken – by Will Paine

INSANE STORY!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!! 100% LEGIT!!! YOUR LOSS IF YOU DONT BELIEVE IT!!! Okay, so I’m at the RMIT library doing some work/ playing doodle jump, killing time whilst waiting for my next class.
