Well school starts back up for me tommorow kinda excited. Get to take my first actual programming class so I am really happy about that(sounds like getting credits for doing something I like :D ) . Well anyways I was also just warning you to, cause it's that time for the tons of school kids asking tons of questions :)

Well I started last monday. They canceled my Robotic Programming in C class because we only had 12 people in the class.

I must say my C++ and math professors are a little, interesting. Should be a fun semester.

I start on Thursday. Last year of High School. They have a crappy new tardy policy...

If it isn't "We will shoot you in you're late" its not that bad :)

Ha ha - I guess not. I would've thought there would be fewer newbies. New newbies yes, but the ones that've been here because they've got nothing else to do on summer than learn C++ are going back to 8th grade. College students won't be so bad.

I tutor college C programming and you'd be surprised about the noob level they can employ

my grand total for books this semester was $380...not too bad...all purchased on the net, and all, with the exception of 2, are brand new. IF I bought these books at school, and buying the used ones where available I would've spent $695!

Golf starts today, school starts next week. Not looking forward to school too much, and--just my luck--this week is the first week all summer that we have gotten a substantial amount of rain, so golf won't be too fun right away either. (Weather forcasts say it will be rainy until thursday I think)

Frosh week starts in 2 weeks for me.

Ah yes - the time of year that a guy can't get much sleep in this part of the city.

;)

Things quiet down going into midterms though. My favourite time of year is April when all the students beat it. :D It is way less crazy traffic then. Speaking of which, you might want to get here early, because it is pretty crazy on the first day - *really* congested.

I'm moving so I have no idea when I'm actually going back to school...heh, I'm assuming I'll be moving at the end of this week, meaning I'll be there in time for registration and the start of school....which is the 7th

School started the eleventh for us.

Sophomore year of high school. So far, I've had a crapload of homework. I guess that's what they call "preparing us for college". Stupid AP European History.

you're so lucky it's not even funny. I'm not allowed to use my comps during the school year (!@&$^% parents), and im stuck in a vb6 class.

looking at these makes me wonder... how old is everyone? I'm 17, and I sure can't find another c programmer to hang out with near me... (nj)

Thantos

Old enough to know better, young enough not to care.

Try going to www.meetup.com and see if there is a programming group near your area.

i would be in my last year (and alreadya year older than everyone) but i fluffed it so i have to redo last year (whch means i'll be two years older than everyone in my class :p) i think school is over rated, teachers make you beleive you'll die and end up in the street if you don't waste a quarter of your life getting 'qualification'

ober
08-27-2004, 07:13 AM
wow... you're a bigger idiot than I thought. Maybe you should stop spending so much time on here and concentrate on school.

not really. i don't care to be honest. I doubt you have much of an idea of how demanding the french education system is, or how it works at all, for me to take your opinion into account

I have people that are at least 3 times older then I in some of my classes, and no they aren't the professor.

What would give you the idea that any of us would care about the french diseducation system ;)

You are all kids :eek:

I really feel sorry for you. Try telling your parents you need the computer at home to practice and study, since your future depends on being good at it.
Maybe they will give you 1 hour a day or so... but with time they will see that, omg!, he isnīt addicted to drugs not even flunking school because he uses the computer in school time ( usually what parents feel deep down, sometimes really at the surface too ).
Maybe wonīt take long before you can use the computer a lot.
Good luck :(

Started today.
C/C++ // know it but could know more prof is scary
Computer Architecture and Assembly // will be studying mips architecture not x86
Calculus // german prof seems good taken it before got a b
Tech Writing // won't know until tomorrow
Guitar // needed a couple credits already play and read

It should be a moderately large amount of work but nothing that will kill.

Still I have the first day I should be studying jitters.

BTW I am attending the University of Montana our mascot is the grizzly bear

first impressions of grad school:

quantitative methods - not bad, only a 10 page research paper - do able.

Intro to PAD - the prof is a crack smoker! how the hell do you write a 10 page "personal goal statement!" isn't a statement rather short, and not 10 pages! another 10 pages for a review of a "classics" document - pure bs. and a 20-25 research paper. freak.

(so far, i'm going for an mpa-master's of public administration - it may soon change)
