    Well he made it past the cisco(spelling?) course/test, and i also pushed him to get his cert in MCSE, so hes not a total dumbass, he just has a hard time grasping it. Its also his first language, ever.

    I thoroughly enjoy abusing the mentally less fortunate in my AP class. Hey, I've earned it.

    Expecially this kid who's all book-smart (and not even a SMART book-smart!), and will not stop arguing every single point...example of one of the stupidest things he's said (and this was just TODAY):

    "Well you can't say goto is all bad. I mean, it has to be important since it's a C++ keyword. It's more important than cout or else they would have made cout a keyword and it would be blue when you type it in, too"

    Right about then I searched for a gun to shoot him with. I ended up doing the next best thing, which was stealing his mouse ball and unhooking his keyboard.

    I would love to see that.

    I have yet to use goto (ways around it) but I use cout all the time.

    Im a relative newb to C programming, as I had taken some, then slacked off and forgot it all until like 2 weeks ago, and I have been pushin the books, trying to read as much as I can. I think I am doing fairly well.....just need people to talk to about it, as my whole family and social group are PC retards.

    Talking

    Agree here as a teacher- some people are not cut out to be programmers. I see it every semester at college.

    I have a guy in class who used to says he is an expert in VB.. Then this year we had the dumb VB classes... The guy comes over and says


    he:- Vasanth can you please help me do this calculator program
    me:- What happened you are supposed to be a master in VB
    he:- well i have finished 90% of everything only a little is left..


    i go over and see the form is designed well.. then guess what i dont see any code... He wanted me to do the coding part and according to him designing is 90% of the work.... And he still thinks he can get a very good job with the crap language VB and that too with his knowledge of draging and placing objects on the form... Believe me he asked me how to use if statements this year... when doinf advanced topics such as data structures.( B tree, hashing etc)...

    So we end up talking about people that think they want to
    program just because they like the result (games). Yeah, I'm
    getting sick of those peeps too .

    My fav part of programming is the challenges. Its no fun to write a program and have it load in one shot!

    It was ment retorical, Only a very simple program can load
    in one shot, So you made a serious overstatement.
