    Ignorant little troll.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    It's weird, but I also considered trucking back when I graduated high school. It seemed like an easy job, would give me the chance to see some scenery, and the pay is actually not bad at all.

    I ended up deciding against it when I got accepted to a fairly good school, and also because of the stories I'd heard about the long hours of sitting physically destroying people's backs and legs, thrombosis/embolism, etc.

    I've driven a 3,500 (or was it 35,000?) gallon tanker truck (in the middle of a 40 acre private property). Tons of fun.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    the days of the old back breakers are gone, they have comfy padded seats with air bags supporting them that you can adjust to just your preference, so a pot hole covered highway feels as smooth as silk. We watched oen fo the other students while drivign and his seat literally moved up and down 6 inches in responce to bumps, yet when you are driving it doesnt feel like you are moving at all. The seats in trucks make the ones in a cadillac look like some old broke ass lawn chair. Plus you have room for a fridge, microwave, bunk beds, TV stereo, all the conforts of home.

    Probably why it doesn't seem to phase a truck driver when they run over another car.

    I just got a nice plaid "donut" style cushion from a surgical supply store, of the sort recommended for hemmorrhoids and pregnant women. I'm really appreciating it, alot. Altho I'm nowhere near giving birth.

    In order to afford my current "learning programming" lifestyle, I am living in a very small single room. Like, I could sit on the bed and put my feet up on the stove. Except I got a bunkbed and took out the bottom bunk so I could put a small table with a computer there. I can sit in my (plaid cushioned) chair under the bunk with my head just clear. The bottom of the bunk is actually steel bars, which makes it the best place for "tipping" like, ever. I also got some christmas lights and this great set of shelves made of old skateboards to hold a ridiculous portion of the Queen's Central Library computer section. Basically it would have been a great bedroom in my parents house as a teenager, except now they are old and so am I. I'm really worried about the whole situation, Men*.

    Anyway, good luck and hard truckin', abachler.

    *Fortunately I can hear the surf 300' away and my landlady is insane, deaf, and confined to a wheelchair. Plus it looks like a real treehouse fort from the outside.
