*our uni computers haven't been updated in so long the version of chrome on them won't load Linked.In, and it even struggles with GMail, only loading a basic HTML version of it.

Do you guys use lexisnexis... cause thing has a 1990s interface.

I’m taking a year off between undergrad and law school and I couldn’t imagine doing my job without a google suite. I feel as if I need technology more now than I did in college.
Yeah, fortunately I don't need it too much because it doesn't apply to a lot of what I'd be doing, it's awful though... Terrible.

Law is pretty easy really, you have lots of great TV shows with useful information, like Suits to refer too.

This thread reminds me of days when I wasn't the elite Irish poster. Better, more innocent days.

I just looked at this comment again thinking it was a new one and immediately thought of Soho old people's home again before seeing I had already said it... I guess some things never change.
It ages well:).

Wait, how is Frome pronounced?
I don't think I've ever heard it out loud, only writted down. Is it not Frome as in rhymes with Bone?

I'm only realising now that words ending in agh (and finishing with an a or ahh sound) is unique to the anglicisation of Irish names. Probably should have realised earlier considering the difficulty people have in pronouncing Clodagh and similar names though...
