I suppose for me its the challenge........

Nothing is better than succeding in something that you were unable to do before....

ID have to say mine is getting all the babes. I used to be just a normal freakin' computer goof, but when I saw all these programming guys with a girl on each arm, I decided to delve into the world of computer programming. Now, im the life of the parties... And you can be too. On my upcoming website you can download for 5$ american "Generators Guide to Getting Da' Ladies: For Programmers Without a Clue" With this youll learn classic pick up lines such as "Hey, Nice Compiler" or "The other girls were all PEBKAC's* but you, your different..." and a classic, "your eyes shine like my monitor after I dust it off with windex". With this, you wont need to rely on corny dating services. The URL will be posted soon.

*PEBKAC = problem exists between keyboard and chair:p :p :p

Classic. Just classic. I think I'm going to use this one.

This probably sounds dumb, but I like the way
the code looks when you're finished. Just looking
at it, thinking, wow--all these letters actually
do something. And wow, my cousin doesn't know
what it means...

Now, my least-favorite thing:
The vocabulary. I learn how to do the thing,
but I can never remember what it's called...

Garfield the PEBKAC = problem exists between keyboard and chair means that the person using the computer is an idoit, thast all.

Have to say I love making programs do cool stuff.

No, static, this sounds quite resonable. This is my main reason to. Just to look back and think about the accomplishment. To say to myself, I just wrote this program with a code that few know.

I do it to get the ladies :D

Seriously, it's just cool to be able to write your own programs, and see how software works.

The babes (as if it should even be a question), of course! Before I programmed, I would have never been able to talk to all the hot babes on this site. You are all hot girls, right?

well guys are dorks... i guess then that i don't do it for that... oh i know... i do it to get my art clear... and all my ideas out... to stare at a changing screen and only having partial control over it's excesses... yeah... that's why i do it...

Ain't that the truth, and of course, searching implies you know the wretched name!

...that's the best part.

Employing your intellectual capacity, or lack thereof in my case, on something useful.

It is to be expected that all of you are very familiar with the feeling of looking back on a problem that previously had you completely baffled after you've unveiled it. It's joyful.

It's truly amazing how something can go from incomprehensible to utterly obvious.

adios,

I like to know stuff other people donīt know, but I think that you cannot do programming and get the girls AT THE SAME TIME!!!
programming is too much time-consuming

but I also like to make the computer do cool stuff, thatīs why Iīm in DirectX programming, Communications and stuff

I love automating things, and i think in a very computer-logic oriented way, so therefor i really love programming. It's fun to try and code new and enginuitve stuff, and then skin the code down to the core and make is run faster than a man who has just been lit on fire.

aran, just so you know... taking one comp sci class for a major before college isn't going to help you as much as you'd think... if you really want to get ahead, you should be taking all of the other AP classes as well... which include [but are not limited to]: physics, biology, chem [if you have it], 1st and 2nd year calc, [and these are only the math/sci]... there's also lit/lang, european hist, american hist, and govt/econ... quite a bit eh? go ahead and get that sophemore standing if you really think you can... ooh, and spanish and all sorts of other foreign languages too... que buena!
