Yeah, it happened on Saturday and I am just now putting something down about it. Its been a busy week already and it shows no sign of slowing down. Yet I did get to compete in a code competition and really not do as well as I would have liked at the C++/Java portion of the challenge, my team, "The Knights of the Loop Table" (if you know code that would be funny – loops are found in code) did knock one out. It was a our first submission as well. The other teams would try and try again to submit something and get it wrong or get points deducted for having a failed submission – ours worked the first time. How do you make failing code?
Dunno, we should probably ask NASA about that.
Still, I’m a bit heated that we only got one in and further that my skills with C++ were not enough to finish one of the programming projects that I started on (oh and we got there a bit late too).
Why is everything in the long run? Who wants a long run? Either means you gotta lot of clothes to clean or you had better have a lot of condoms… either sounds like a … well the second would be more fun.
In the long run, I got hired to continue development on a real program. That is pretty cool and it seems like I might be making about 10 to 20 hours a week on it depending on how much time I spend or how much work we can generate for ourselves. We might even try to put the "Knights of the Loop Table" in the code somewhere so that we get to go down in infamy for something not all that bad.
Now that it is 3:30 am and I am really not at all tired (went to bed at about 6 pm or so yesterday and slept all night… yes it was amazing) I think I am going to finish that Math homework that has been drivin me nuts.
