this is just stuff that's on my mind, my interests, or because I'm simply bored. Should be cool though if I pay attention to it. WARHAMMER 40K kicks ass!!! Necrons are the best, hands down. No doubt about that! My interests are wide and varied.

Coding = Fun!

Unless you've got a nasty icky bug hidden somewhere in 10,000+ lines of code and have to dig it out. That not fun.

Especially if it's a missing semicolon in one line of code that results in an error in a perfectly working bit of code sixteen lines below and you don't think of that possibility and pick that one line apart 16 billion ways before going godzilla on something...

Pfft, most compilers pick up easy syntax errors like that

I'll tell you what's fun. Programming in FORTRAN with punch cards.

One day, your dream course will be obsolete.

Nah, my dream course will never be obsolete, and it's great! Loads of employers are looking at the graduates coming out of that course, with Microsoft supporting the course.

Yeah, thank god.

Or I'd still be doing the final project in question.

All the people shown on the web page are girls. Is it a girls-only college? If not, and there are tons of gamer chicks, let me be the first to say giggity giggity gooooo!

That reminds me of a comment one of my friends made once:

"One huge advantage is that I don't have to explain to my wife why football is an absolute necessity, my boyfriend already knows that!"

(In this case, it'd be the fact that gamer guys are easier to find than gamer girls, for whatever reason... but still the same concept)

It seems to be randomized sets. Some have guys and at least one has nobody.

Last I went to Carlow to see what was there there were loads of girls. This years 2008 graduates had several girls on the course. Hehe, I'm a lucky guy.

Even more fun is a memory corruption bug hiding in someone else's crappy, asynchronous, threaded 10,000+ loc GUI components which are messy extensions of an external company's crappy, asynchronous, threaded 100,000+ loc GUI components, and the bug has a 0% chance of showing up with the debugger enabled.

Aaargh...

Yes, I just had a bad couple of days at work.

Sounds like something I'm dealing with at my internship -- they started out by outsourcing the website (www.watchdoit.com) to an outside programming company. Who did crap-all in the way of decent programming, so they're having to rebuild almost from scratch... and by "almost" I mean rebuild it one piece at a time in the hopes that something goes right.
