    Talking SO, what did U do over the summer?

    I did...

    ABSOLUTLY NOTHING!!!

    Just sit on my a$$ all day...what about you?
    Well, there are a few things wrong with your code:

    1) It does not work.
    2) It does not work.
    3) It does not work.

    Hope this helps.

    Not much either. I interned at a game company, took a full semesters worth of classes and still managed to find time to play a ridiculous amount of Counter-Strike.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I've been working at a cool ice cream joint; also, flirting and dating some of the fountain girls. I play volleyball twice a week in a church league. I had senior week at the beginning of my summer. I also had freshman orientation.

    Yeah, that's most of my summer.

    I worked all summer.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I did so much stuff its unbelievable.

    - gone to the pool like 15 times
    - coded on my game, programming language, and did several web sites
    - found too much time to play bz2, founded my own clan with my friend, got *extremely* good at the game
    - my mom went out for two weeks abroad so we had fun at home
    - went kayaking 6 times (oh the stories...)
    - drove a motor boat
    - did racketball twice
    - hiked twice, mountain biked
    - went to six flags
    - went to kennywood (theme park)
    - went to philladelphia for two nights
    - went to erie for a night
    - bought a mini-disc player
    - my grandma came over for 2 weeks
    - did training (weights, crunches)
    - hanged around with buddies at the pool
    - ...and much more for just four easy payments of $19.95!

    Its been fun! Yet I can't wait to get back to school. I might sound wierd but I think its actually fun if you take away all the repetitive, senseless work (some of it is fun though). I agree, 60% of the time I was sitting on my arse in front of my computer. It gets boring...

    I did A LOT of NOTHING!

    The only things worth mentioning are that I left my job in mid June after having worked there for like 1.5 yrs b/c one new manager was making my life miserable, was only able to go to two concerts since I had very little money, messed up my car the night before school started (wasn't my fault) to the point where I had to sell it for very little money since it wasn't worth it for me to try to fix it, but I did start my new job at the beginning of August that pays great money.
