    good luck P ;P keep us updated on ur first day LOL

    frankom: Thanks.
    It's not really "free" since the course was for KD1480 just a few months ago when I asked about it but now it's more like KD350+ just because they have this new laptop offer. Besides, I don't think it's really worth it because I'm used to Mac and the laptop will be Acer although something is better than nothing and I might get some use out of it otherwise I'll just give it to my lil' sister. :|

    me7sin: Thanks. Will do.

    good luck. i'll give you a tip on the English for IT (I'm english, and work in IT). Every user is stupid, so all you need to know is "No, don't click that. Click what I said. Look, give it here I"ll just do it myself".

    The Criticizer said...

    LOL @ Moocherx!!11one... xD

    I'll keep that in mind, thanks for the hint. :P

    snookie said...

    yes it does! we talked about in q8speed! :D

    good luck bro *thumbs up* too bad they dont have a seperate course for macs :/

    The Criticizer said...

    Yeah, all their work is on Windows. I cannot afford the retard~ness fo Windows but there's nothing I can do. And the most annoying part is that I have to have the ICDL course, which is all abouts Windows shYt. :/

    Thanks for the wishes and good luck to you on your studies. ;)

    Actually my brain functions only when it comes to that kind of stuff. I should have studied that at college but my GPA didn't help. ;P
