mid-semester check in

This board has been awfully quiet so thought I'd start some conversation!  How are the CS's doing, now that they are well into the semester (or quarter...)?  By this time, I recall when my girls were in school, the "honeymoon" of getting back on campus was over.   I'd start to hear about roommate problems, professors they didn't care for, stress in balancing work loads, etc.  What's going on with your CS?  Any of the above?

Her bike WAS a crappy old bike. She'd had it for years. The campus police told her that the bikes most frequently stolen aren't the high-end ones, but the run of the mill ones, because they're easier to sell or to take apart for parts. In any case, they don't think it's another student who is doing this, but a ring of bike thieves. The local high schools have had the same problem this year, too.

What the kids did at my kids' university was to have a few cheap, second-hand bikes. They would take the front wheel off and either take it with them or lock it to the back wheel.They also left their bikes in the bike racks with the other bikes;locked in such a way that the bike cannot be removed (lock and all).

Sure, they would get "good" locks but locks will not stop a determined thief. They will and do find a way.
