Long story short, due to human error and technological retardation, I missed the first two ‘Live Online!’ sessions of my online GRE prep class. Don’t even start on that one. Anyway, tried to play the archived exams, but the program kept having a spaz attack and shutting down mid-download. Great. So, I spent a half an hour on the phone with tech support, only to be told to download the Mac OS X update and try it again.
Well guess what? the OS X update for Java REMOVED the Web Start portion (the one I need for this bloody program) Great. After a half-hour of forum trolling and bad Google searches, I found it (yeah!) but it still won’t run the archived classes (boo!) It’s 6:40, so I try the other program again – for my live class later tonight – and it works! I’m also 40 minutes late for class! The entire Princeton Review website is in PST EXCEPT the online class schedule. I know, right?
Anyway, enough whining. I put two hours into this silly test tonight and it had better pay off!
