    I had the same experience at my school. Practically all males in the Engineering building. Funny aside - our school also had nursing and dentristry programs. The dentistry students had to recruit other students on campus to "practice" on, so it was a fairly common sight at one point in the semester to see attractive females using their wiley charms to get guys on board for this practice. Quite fun to watch. I happen to be immune to the colloquial "attractive female" style, so I never had to worry about falling into that trap - my teeth were safe from such amateur poking and prodding.

    I thought so for about eight years, but then I happened to find someone as non-standard as myself about 10 months ago. It's practically impossible for me to to meet the kind of person I wanted by "going out," but I managed to find a way around this obstacle.

    Well, if you express eight as 8, then rotate the symbol appropriately, you get what looks like a symbol for infinity, so I guess that's "forever"

    This just goes to show how everything in my life is 90 degrees out of phase from the norm =)

    Well of course it is possible but still I have to say: "Tell me about it... Know exactly what you mean..." Then you are lucky, good for you mate.

    I am not sure that "eight" was meant to be expressed as an integer. I would keep it as a CHAR[5] to avoid stack overflow, not even considering what would happen if you rotated the integer by ((1/2 PI) RAD).

    Thank you very much! Yes I am =)

    Don't forget to leave room for the null terminator

    Damn I was wrong. I was considering the null terminator but I thought that CHAR[5] is a string of 6 characters CHAR[0] --> CHAR[5]. Now I realized I was wrong.

    Well, it looks like you make mistakes both with the opposite sex and with programming.
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    I would like to move (at least temporarily) to the UK. I believe people are much friendlier there.

    everyone believes that the people are friendlier in some other part of the world. I'm sure people in England feel that there's a place where people are friendlier - Canada maybe?
