I didn't get the section leader job. Apparently 30 or so students applied, and only 12 got the job. I dunno, but sumthin' slippery strikes me about their choosin' ... Sheeyit, it don't harm me none. My life is that much easier. It just means I can keep more hours on the research job during fall (and, regardless, research starting pay is $2 more !)

I may have been given an extension on my Networking Assignment. I WILL NOT FAIL !
I cannot continue my networking homework. I'm 23 years old and can't even pull a full overnighter anymore . I'll have to live with the bad grade. In fact, there's nothing I can do to get more than an E. AN E. What can you do about that ? I remember reading about something that allows you to drop your classes down to zero once and only once, but I can't find any information about it now ! The only thing left is Academic renewal: a necessary evil. This will be the worst semester in my history of college. It turns out that the only class left I can get a grade replacement in is cs346, so I'll most likely drop the math minor, take just few enough classes that I'll get A's, and graduate as soon as possible. Will Linear Algebra stay in place? Who knows. My new research job might require it, so in the meantime, I'm keeping it registered.
just to let y'all know, libc_toc is the greatest keyword since *nix's "man" command. Do a search and you will find mirrors of the GNU Library Manual's most excellent (spoken in proper Bill&Ted dialect) Table of Contents. If you're wondering WHY I'm up and have been making so many posts lately, the answer is SIMPLE! I'm going to be near a computer until 4:00pm tomorrow, when I'll be finished with my 3:45pm Demo slot for my Networking project ! Fun? No. :-p
