Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    12 credit hours per semester is standard full time, I think... for reference purposes.

    That's in the US. If I recall she is Canadian....

    Maybe, I don't think so. I remember during our orientation we were told to drop classes if we had part time jobs and such based on a certain hours formula, and my Learning Disability advisor told me to consider dropping a class at the beginning of the year. I'm going to talk to my TA tomorrow morning and find out where I go for more information and to start the process.

    I don't see whats wrong with steam when purchasing games, unless you mean to use their applet to download it.

    Doesn't Direct 2 Drive have a certain amount of downloads you are allowed to have for the game? I thought I remember something like that when I got the blood masquarade off their site.

    I get about 3x the download speed (about 1 megabyte per second sustained) out of Direct2Drive. And you unlock it once during install and never have to deal with them again after that.

    Honestly don't know about a download limit. I just burnt my install files to DVD.

    Assuming UofT works like here (an okish guess), she probably needs 9 credit hours a week to be full time in a semester, which is 3 courses

    I'm at York. The course I want to drop is a 9, but I'm taking two other 9s, a 6, and a 3.

    Even in the US different institutions have different criteria for a "full load"

    But I don't know of anywhere where 4 courses wouldn't fulfill it (unless they're some sort of weird 1 credithour course or something)

    Those are course hours? You're taking 36 hours of classes currently?

    A heavy load in college in the US is 18 per semester. People pushing hard to finish in 3 years will take 20 per semester.

    Ah, ok. Here they're basically synonymous. A 1 hour, 3 times a week class gets you 3 credits.

    The hell is this course hours system?

    UoT works on credits: Fullyear course is 1.0, Halfyear course is 0.5. To be a full-time student you need to have 3.0 credits or more worth of courses, anything less than that is part-time. You can have a maximum 5.0 credits per year, with 6.0 credits granted for a limited time registration early in the year if you want to add a 6th credit. And you need 20.0 credits to graduate.
