Re: Gaudeamus disco

Actually, I never got over the classic Formby track 'disco mixed' in re: cleaning windows, as it happens.

Quoting Bizarre Atheist from 00:57, 14th May 2008
What (if you don't mind my asking) were the merits upon which you won it, RJ Covino?


I don't believe they were enumerated beyond the standard "years of selfless service to the students of St Andrews".

Quoting Bizarre Atheist from 19:30, 12th May 2008 I wonder if the winners are eternally confidential? Unless things have changed since I won it (in 2005), the names are inscribed on the Cup itself, so you could check there. I suspect it still lurks in the Association President's office, being big a...

Quoting Jamie Potton from 01:55, 22nd Apr 2008 Dead? I didn't know he was ill... Anyway, like all things, this requires confidence and the rare state of not being a twat to pull off. The tartan waistcoat is an option only for a certain St Andrean MSP. Not dead. I can hear the 'shame' from Chattanoo...

Quoting Eliot Wilson from 18:23, 20th Apr 2008
I think we're using trews in its modern rather than strict sense.


Stricto sensu even, to borrow a phrase.

Re:

The University motto is similarly a quotation - from the Homer, which is why it's not just ours alone to play with. (Iliad, VI.208, if memory serves.)

To answer Donkey's question with a question, is it not also in stone over the main door to Deans Court?

Re:

Quoting the Empress from 22:42, 20th Mar 2008 I thought using 'American' or 'British' spellings didn't matter, as long as you're consistent, and don't swap between them in a piece of work? I can't remember ever seeing some manner of official policy on the matter - I do know, however, that my Ph.D. ...

I think you'll find that Principal Arnott's got three full-lengths kicking around the University...

Re:

Quoting James Shield from 11:10, 8th Jan 2008 How so? In a nutshell, I'd say it was mostly down to a lack of faith in / willingness to work with the system on the part of several DoR's in a row. Instead, there was much time wasted on failed attempts to re-revamp the entire thing instead of focusing...

That's a laugh - I, and others, spoke in dozens upon dozens of debates, the minutes for which have never appeared online or even been lodged in the official accounts. The online minutes presently date back to Miss Wilson's term as Convenor - unless new ones are lodged in some bizarre sub-folder of t...

Re:

That *was* a 'hilarious' 'new' verse (some might say 'hil-AR-ious' even)... You can tell because it never scanned properly, e.g. "but it's in the Constitution so you can f*ck off." See? Too many syllables.
