This morning I have finally uploaded my assignment (URLyBird 1.3.3). I am taking the follow up (essay exam) next Monday.
So, at this moment I am in what I call

"automatic-failure-nightmare-by-broad-daylight" syndrome

Any last tips ? anyone ? Stress-releave tips also most welcome at this point

take up another hobby, or a job
Anything to get your mind away from things.
Hard liquor and halicogenic drugs are supposed to work as well, but may impair your functioning at the written test so I'd not use them unless as a last resort.

I am doing the exam on Monday too. You are not alone.

Phew (to myself)! I am feeling the same. I am uploading tommorrow - the last minute just in case if I've forgotten anything.

In addition to Jeroen's tips, I found that going on a holiday to a place where I had no internet access to find out what was happening helped me.

Regards, Andrew

Well, in fact, I am taking a short holiday, 4 days to London, starting a week after I take the follow up exam.
So, hopefully, the exam graders aren't very fast and give me my score before I go off to London or my short city trip may be "automatically" spoiled.
On the other hand, the hotel I am staying in, does have internet access...
Apparently there is no getting away from this stuff

There is Ronald. Went to Wyoming for a few weeks in 2004. Stayed in a log cabin in the middle of Grand Teton National Park.
No internet access for 100km, no cellphone reception for 400, no TV or radio either.
Heaven on earth even without the breathtaking scenery.
