Um, I'm on it when I should be doing homework (oh, wait, I'm a CS major, my homework IS on it)...I'm not doing my homework when I'm on it. Yeah, that's the problem there.

Also, I'm on it when it hurts me to be so (I have a really bad migraine right now and it the monitor is really much brighter now than it usually is. I think it's searing my retinas)

How far along are you in CS?

My problem is that I'm on the computer when I should be doing homework too. Unfortunately, most of my CS classes lately have not involved using the computer. At the moment, the only class involving computers is my machine architecture/digital logic lab class in which I have to do a bunch of circuit designs and simulate them.

Also, there's the AOL thing. It really is spiffy for email though. At least I'm not one of those people who has a cable modem, but still uses AOL to use the internet because I don't know any better (my sister logs on via LAN and uses IE within AOL).

If an icon is selected on my desktop I have to unselect it for some odd reason. I don't seem to like it for one reason or another. Don't ask me why, I just do it. :D

Well..I graduate at the end of the summer. All I have left are CS classes. So I'm well into my college career, but have pretty much just gotten into the CS part of it. :D Took the circuit class last year (and an intro one at another school about four years back). Interesting class, very glad that it's on the curriculum. Also had my core object oriented classes (up to CSIII) and ASM. Currently taking Java, VB, and a "Software Engineering" class (group project for a client) in which I'm working with a group on a web based major/minor forms system. My group is constantly surprised at the hack job that previous gruups did with this...as an example, the database consists of a table with ~430 columns. Might be like two other tables.

So, yeah, almost done. :)

i know, but sometimes i feel it is my responsibility to educate my friends so they dont remain ignorant of computer hardware :eek: ...and then i feel bad for misleading them....and there's the standard "dude, you have a 500mhz oc, stop your computer will die lol"...oh well....i will only concern myself :)
