In the meantime, I've scored another project to do on the side, migrating a data service from an old firewall environment to a new(er) one.

My boss' boss has agreed to give me two hours a week paid study leave to attend University classes. The rest I have to make up myself. Better than a kick in the teeth, and better than having to make up the total contact hours myself. Now if I can just get tutorials outside of work hours, I should only have to make up about three hours a week of lectures.
