  1. Nope, a degree in Computer Science will not change my playing habits. It will, however, make me feel smug around all those liberal arts majors who wouldn't date me.

    Unlike Snakes, you don't get a picture of my sister, but here's a picture with my brother to make up for it.

    Now to just get Chex Warrior out of here.

      Since I had to learn advanced Automata theory, It took me a year longer than it should have.

      Congrats, man.

      I`m going back to school this autumn (maybe next autumn if I`m unlucky). Yay, only 3 (actually 4) years of studying and little money to look forward to. Good thing I`m so young, ONLY 29! haha :(

      We did intro to theoretical computer science, where we did automata and turing machines and whatnot. There were like five of us who were lucky enough to get it and got As on everything while everyone else failed every assignment. They were smart people too, I felt bad. Once you get it though and start to enjoy them you feel so nerdy, heh.

      A funny story, the professor let the people who failed one test retake it the following class while those who got As didn't have to come that day. He tells the people in the retake that the next class is cancelled. So the people who didn't retake all showed up and would have waited for a long time had someone not been nice enough to stay back and tell everyone.

      Most of the people I went to school with were in their late 20s. Unless it's some fancy-pants college where your course schedule is written out for you at the beginning and living on campus is all but mandatory, someone your age going to school is pretty much normal.

      That's quite an unusual occurrence today. In some markets, in particular Java programming, employers look for knowledge of specific frameworks (Spring, Hibernate, Struts and MVC frameworks in general) and "proven experience" using them, so showing an "off topic" portfolio (e.g. showing DIP applications for a web framework position, which unfortunately are the majority) and even a "willingness to learn" and "ability to pick up things real quick" isn't going to work .

      From what I've heard, that kind of stuff is asked for, but not for entry level positions. I could be wrong though.
