Bama Eyes, Bama Staredown

Back to the Labs

Got to go print out my notes to study tonight, and print out this paper that I just got through writing. I'll probably give it a rewrite while I'm waiting, but I'll have time. Since other Universities have been blatantly stealing lectures from our class websites, some of the teachers have been putting the slides on Adobe Acrobat presentations instead. While this doesn't stop the theft, it at least keeps them from being able to put their name and logo on it and claiming that they are their own - now, they have to sit down and type out each slide, word for word. ::smiles:: Bad thing is, though, that the printer can only spool one page at a time, so it takes about ten minutes to process each print request. I might hop on AIM Express while I'm there, once I'm satisfied with my paper that is. Hopefully I'll be able to make it back in time for Justice League. Oh well, better get goin'.

P.S. Laura, if you're reading this, I love you. ^_^

I'm Here!

Doncha just HATE it when you drive through the parking lot in circles for ten minutes, looking for a spot, almost hitting folks stupid enough to jump out in front of you after dark, and finally get a space way back in the middle of nowhere? What's even worse is when you do all of that, and then after walking all the way to the building through the cold, the dark, the wet, you pass no less than a DOZEN parking spots....all of which are directly beside the building that you need to go to. GRRR! It's just adding insult to injury. Oh well. I just got the absolute sweetest away message from my baby, so everything's okay. Laura, how do you always know just how to make me so very happy? ::smiles:: I just hope that no one else tries to IM her between now and then, or else it's kneecap-breakin' time!!

Yeah, I'm in a silly mood tonight.

Laura seems to like these Beatle guys a lot, and while I was online looking for some refrences to add into my Programming Languages paper, I stumbled across this. I guess I'm just a hard-core computer geek, because I know more of the languages listed below than I do the actual lyrics of the song. Well, anyway, here is "The Bugs" and their smash hit, "Write in C":


When I find my code in tons of trouble,
Friends and colleagues come to me,
Speaking words of wisdom:
"Write in C."

As the deadline fast approaches,
And bugs are all that I can see,
Somewhere, someone whispers:
"Write in C."

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
LOGO's dead and buried,
Write in C.

I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
For science it worked flawlessly.
Try using it for graphics!
Write in C.

If you've just spent nearly 30 hours
Debugging some assembly,
Soon you will be glad to
Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
Only wimps use BASIC.
Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C
Write in C, oh, Write in C.
Pascal won't quite cut it.
Write in C.

Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
Don't even mention COBOL.
Write in C.
