Does this compute?
That pretty much sums up the last four days as I try to comprehend two courses in UNIX/Linux programming and Java language. It's a hell of a shift in routine - kind of like popping the transmission in reverse while rolling downhill at 80 mph - but after a day of general frustration in getting the first assignments down, I kinda like it.
As I told my instructor in an e-mail today, I think I was having a liberal arts moment.
Who knows - after a couple of months of this, I may be writing my own template code. Or then again, I might not know my posterior from a hole in the ground which, by the way, is a comparative study course later in the program.
At least it keeps me from thinking too much about our not-so-esteemed president.
So, how are YOU doing?
