    hehehe... I am in the minority in this field
    My programs don't have bugs, they just develop random features.

    I'd be wary of chicks who dig assembly programmers.

    I am majoring in Creative Writing. Coding is strictly a hobby for me.

    The only thing that keeps me from going to college for some suit wearing degree like CS is my passion for reading, writing, and making scientologists angry.

    So C# is just C/C++/Java (take your pick) chopped up into little bits, reworked and baked into a horrible mess
    I'd say C# is just C++/Java chopped into little bits, reworked and baked into a really usable Framework.

    I'm glad I had a girlfriend BEFORE I started programming.
    Dang, that's what went wrong... when I started programming I would have screamed and flailed my arms if a girl kissed me. eeew. Girls weren't fun back then, only Barbies, no plastic soldiers, no RC Tanks...

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    hehe, true, true.

    I started out with Java, but didn't get very far, so I changed to C. C is my life now..

    I decided to start learning programming because I was sick w/ my computer knowledge. I guess I still am... And too I'd like to have it as a carreer in life, but that's still a long way to go...

    One time I woke up and there it was... The blue screen of death!

    yeah, I too don't know what that has to do with programming.
