I know you're going to ask... no, I haven't done any coding. So sue me.stubby fingers
I had a very... enlightening... conversation with one of the lab managers at my school. (This isn't the same one I dealt with earlier.) We got into a discussion about programming languages.muchos dolores..
She actually claimed C++ was simpler than C, simply because it has iostreams rather than stdio. The book she used to learn C didn't cover printf() very well, and the C++ book covered iostreams, so of course she assumed that iostreams are better. Of course she didn't realize how much of a monstrosity C++ can be if you let it. We bantered back and forth for a while, then I told her I would bring her some C code that I had written.
That was yesterday. Today I printed out some sample C code and a copy of the GPL, for her enlightenment.
She also said she would rather write in COBOL. So I went to the library and checked out a COBOL book. Just LOOKING at the source makes my fingers hurt.

Spanish is coming along slowly. On July 26 I have to give a presentation about gauchos. The Argentine cowboys. Yeah, those guys. Actually, it's an interesting topic... but I don't have the needed vocabulary in Spanish yet.
Next term I have to take Calculus III. It's not required for graduation, but it is required to transfer to USF's Comp Sci program. Don't ask me why.
I still need to take General Chemistry 2 and Wellness Concepts (gym class).
The time had come again for me to find another pair of sandals for my size-13-wide feet.microsludge
So I got a decent-looking pair of sandals, size 13. Only one problem: they're too long. When I'm riding my bike, the toes tend to rub against the ground if I'm not careful. They're also a hassle to walk in. They're also too narrow.
If a pair is short enough, it's too narrow, and if I get a pair wide enough, they're too long.
Bill Gates can't be human. There is no way that much crap can flow from one person.life, the universe, and everything
logic: Today had a number of interesting things happen. First, the total solar eclipse. Next, it's the first day of summer solstice. Then, we have Mars making a quick pass near earth. And finally, it is the 42nd day since the passing of Douglas Adams. What a strange set of coincidences.tickling the ivories?
Maybe someone actually built the Infinite Improbability Drive?
More like "pummeling the ivories".
I learned my first song today... "Miniature Waltz"... it's only 16 measures but it took me nearly an hour to play it correctly. I still haven't learned to play hands-together correctly yet.
(Don't laugh. I just started learning.)
