Ignorance at its best....
As some of you know i don't like 99% of the people in my programming class....i don't think i ever will. Thats kind of why this event makes me SO mad. Its really bad for my blood pressure, heres the story;
Were sitting in programming class, which is divided into teams based on programming skill/background. Because i am ahead of the class in about every way, and i have worked with so many languages, i lucked out and made it onto the advanced team(lol.). Needless to say we in our group take our work very seriously. One of the team members is the teachers son, so hes on our team, tho i don't feel him worthy of writing a for loop in something as simple as visual basic.
Anyway were sitting in our teams, and i notice one of the members isn't working with us, hes surfing the net. We program with Visual Studio .NET, which as anyone who has used it knows, there is a start page with a list of recent programs yadda yadda. At the top of this start page is a address bar with a default setting of something like "http://vstudio.htm" or some crap.
Well this can be used to browse the net inside of VS .NET. Duh. So onto what ........ed me off.
This kid is surfing the net in VS, so i said "yo whats the deal, your on the team i need you to do something." His reply to me is that he already has done something. When asked what that is he tells me he "re-programmed visual studio."
THIS should be good!
He claims to have added the ability to surf the net and uploaded his version to all the computers. After about 10 minutes or arguing with him about how much of an IDIOT he is, i got detention for "verbally doubting the potential of another student."
Hes so lucky hes her son....
