Friedman: A registration nightmare

Sophomore Gabrielle Friedman, a Hatchet columnist, urges the University to fix the problems with the registration technology, as the server can’t process the requests of so many students on the mornings when students sign up for classes.

I expected the ridiculous numerology that took traditional course reference numbers hostage would make the already painful process of 7 a.m. registration even worse. Little did I know that those annoying, nonsensical numbers would be the least of my worries.

On the morning of my registration it was 7 o’clock on the dot and I was still locked out of GWeb. Another minute of unsuccessful login attempts passed and before I knew it, it was 7:05 a.m. In the darkness of the early morning all my computer spouted back was the infamous message, “HTTP/1.1 Service Unavailable.”

Talk about déjà vu.
