The working week begins

Today we started resetting courses from Semester 1 - we don't touch the content of the course, but we clear out the records of student participation, ready for the next time they are used. It's a tedious business, but it's got to be done. We always discover a few anomalies or little details we've missed, too, so it's a chance to double-check things and keep our system clean and tidy.
The next step is to reset the cross-coded course groups. They have to be backed up, split apart, renamed, reset, and re-combined, a process that takes about 5 minutes at the least, and 15 or 20 minutes for the tricky ones. We'll earn our breaks this week!
