pjf: You have my deepest condolences. I thank your mother for her research and documentation on the life and work of George Collingridge. I learned many new things from reading through the pages. I wish you steadfast strength as you move through this difficult time.
shlomif: "CS is more inclusive and also talks about writing modular code, computer language design, OS design, and everything else that has to do with writing software for a computer. (hence the name)."
Why on earth would you ever go to school for that?
Just go find an old gray-hair to hangout with for a while and they'll probably love teaching you that stuff. And the other comment someone made about Software Engineering was right on the mark. At my school they have "Computer Engineering" which is like a mix of EE and the kind of software design theory you might be talking about. Not Algorithms (they get that in EE) but just like the core parts of programming (asm, c, debuggers, compilers).
Personally, I've enjoyed being an Anthropology major and I'd recommend it to anybody.
ByteSplit: Hush...There's no need to be mean. Nobody forces you to come here and nobody forces you to read. I enjoy reading what MichaelCrawford writes; I tend to enjoy reading what most people write on these walls.
Advogato is specifically the place for the sometimes seemingly off-topic dialogue. The reality, however, is that what seems off-topic so rarely is.
I think I want to get started writing some Gnome apps. It's an excuse to sharpen my C skills beyond just example code I've written.
I've just never had to write a program in C for real use. Perl and other languages have always done what I needed but I know a foundation is missing and I want to have that.

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
