    ID have to say mine is getting all the babes. I used to be just a normal freakin' computer goof, but when I saw all these programming guys with a girl on each arm, I decided to delve into the world of computer programming. Now, im the life of the parties... And you can be too. On my upcoming website you can download for 5$ american "Generators Guide to Getting Da' Ladies: For Programmers Without a Clue" With this youll learn classic pick up lines such as "Hey, Nice Compiler" or "The other girls were all PEBKAC's* but you, your different..." and a classic, "your eyes shine like my monitor after I dust it off with windex". With this, you wont need to rely on corny dating services. The URL will be posted soon.

    *PEBKAC = problem exists between keyboard and chair
    What's a matter you no like peppi?

    This probably sounds dumb, but I like the way
    the code looks when you're finished. Just looking
    at it, thinking, wow--all these letters actually
    do something. And wow, my cousin doesn't know
    what it means...

    Now, my least-favorite thing:
    The vocabulary. I learn how to do the thing,
    but I can never remember what it's called...

    Garfield the PEBKAC = problem exists between keyboard and chair means that the person using the computer is an idoit, thast all.

    Have to say I love making programs do cool stuff.

    No, static, this sounds quite resonable. This is my main reason to. Just to look back and think about the accomplishment. To say to myself, I just wrote this program with a code that few know.

    I do it to get the ladies

    Seriously, it's just cool to be able to write your own programs, and see how software works.
    Ramble on...

    The babes (as if it should even be a question), of course! Before I programmed, I would have never been able to talk to all the hot babes on this site. You are all hot girls, right?
