Brief but immense panic where it looked like all the work I'd done on current MSc assignment was going to be useless (I needed one extra bit of information which was not showing up in my searches). Kept at it, found three related scenarios - not quite what I need, all different from each other, but all related to what I need in different ways. Not only do they give this information, but all give about the same information (no, they weren't cross-referencing each other). Close enough that I can carry on with what I was doing and justify my choices.
And I am incredibly happy, as for a couple of hours there it looked like a huge disaster :D


As an MSc student currently writing up, I very much feel for you on this! Glad you got it sorted out

Belated happy birthday, Hedgehog!

Corenfa - fortunately it was 'only' and end of module assignment rather than the Final Big Thing (I'm distance learning, over many years).  In the light of the next day, there is still 20 days to the deadline, and I probably could have modified what I had to work around it if I hadn't been able to find my missing piece.  So it wouldn't have been a total disaster, just not much fun!

Congratulations indeed.

My idea of 'long-term' is about 50 minutes...
