    Programming class

    I hope to get into a programming class this summer unless the college got rid of them, because there wasn't enough people interested. They said I might be to young. I talked to the counselor and I asked her if I were to demonstrate my knowledge of programming. She told me it would most definitely help. My question for you guys is....What kind of program might I make to demonstrate all of the various things I have learned?
    My computer is awesome.

    First, what have you actually learned?

    A game (tic tac toe will probably do) perhaps? Or something more advanced - maybe something to do with networks (a simple client-server app?).

    Something I've been toying with doing in my spare time is a GOOD, simple file searcher to replace the crap in windows explorer. Something that lets you search (and maybe replace) for strings (of MULTIPILE LINES) if files (or patterns of files, ie "C:\My Documents\**.cs" where ** is any file in any sub-directory). Wouldn't be incredibly hard.

    Write doom, from scratch.
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    To whom it may concern,
    cerin is basically a worthless poster, but he is less worthless than he used to be. To say this is actually an increase in work is fallacious, though. His worth was about 0 before, and now it's double that. As his signature indicates, he's created FAR MORE THAN 6 programs, including "pointer program". Seriously, you have no idea how many more than 6. Probably at least 8, but something as high as 9 or maybe even 11!

    Clearly he is qualified to take the most advanced classes you offer, as well as teach them.

    Love,
    Govt "Crotch Pump" Cheez

    Too bad I just haven't changed my signature. I've made more than 6 programs.

    Note to myself: ask Govtcheez for a recommendation letter whenever applying for a job.

    Ooh ooh! I want a recommendation letter too! But unlike cerin, I'll actually use it to set a light tone for my next interview.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I can see it now. Who wants to go make a joke about applying for a job? Completely BS a resume to get an interview...and during the interview pull out Gov'ts letter of recomendation and talk about how your so uber r33t and if they dont hire you your going to turn on your map hacks and pwn them.
