part a: the boring programming part
I can't do anything without arrays. Seriously. Doesn't matter what it is, there's gotta be an array in there. Not really. I go potty without arrays. Are arrays all they're cracked up to be? Hell yes. I am looking through some old code, and there are arrays in it. For you younger folk who are just learning programming, don't lose sight of arrays. Arrays are your friends. You should be feeling bored about now.

part b: the... er... duhhhhhhhh
Watched a little too much Dilbert tv show this weekend. I'm not unmotivated, but I do seem to be missing a brain. Only one of them,though. The ones in jars on top of the refrigerator are still there. Lucky me. It's as if everyone has seen more Yu-gi-oh than I have. It's kinda sad. Seriously. You should feel sympathetic now.
OK, stop. That's enough sympathy for you. You know it snowed on Saturday, and today it's like 60 degrees out? It's very nice out. I want to go to the mall on my way home, but I'll end up spending another $100 at the video store. Which is probably why I'll end up going anyway. this keyboard sucks.

partie d: Si j'écris en français, voudriez-vous l'après-midi d'une faun?

I suck at html. littleaccents andstuff. andthiskeyboardsucksass. You'd think itdidn't have a spacebar at all. I did some work on my screenplay over the weekend but it's still miles from being done. And by miles, I mean pages. Or metaphorical miles the characters travel in the story. I don't think they travel very many physical miles. It's chock-full o' metaphorical miles, though. I guess. What the hell is a metaphorical mile anyway. Now you should feel contempt, for those who are uneducated in the ways of metaphorical miles.
OK, contempt time is over. It is now time for the singing and dancing! But you aren't off the hook yet. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to make up a tune for these words:

One last song lyric: il y a tous que vous voulez, au Champs-Elysees.

Response to part a:
What language?
Arrays = suxor if you have to integrate them with different loops in C... BEH!
Date: February 16th, 2004 - 06:43 pm
No, arrays are good. Hear me now, believe me later.

I don't mean in classwork, where the array is the excercise. I mean in real work, where the array is a tool you use to accomplish a vital task.

well, i know that if you have a real purpose for an array, its completely roxor... but in class... you dont. and its suxor as i previously stated...
but at least so far VB arrays are easier than C arrays from what i can tell.. last semester kind of sucked.

It is nearly impossible to get anything beyond the trivial accomplished in VB without doing backbends to get references and all that. It's irritating as all hell.

I failed my VB class because i refused to use that terribly obfuscated naming convention.
Teacher said not to.

if you're refering to the whole 'txtName' thing, i know what you mean.. I took VB before in 11th grade, and i got used to a simple naming method, using as short of a description as possible without getting it confused.
This year, the professor actually took off points from one of my assignments because i named my stuff 'txtName' instead of txtBxName..
Seriously, why the hell do you need to waste time and the millionth of a byte of space so that you can tell that the only object in VB that uses the word TEXT in its name is distinguished as a box?

i also hate how he makes us name our memory variables. mvAccount or something. I've always used no title for it..

I'd also like to add that i hate VB .Net 2003 compared to VB 6.0 Pro
I've been goosed!

Good news! No one in the real world knows what programmers do anyway, so you can use whatever naming convention you like!

I use a naming convention for variables (not for constants) like iCount and stuff, but I shouldn't because I don't really plan my work in advance. So, now, in one thing I'mdoing, I have an array called strAddr which is actually storing integers. One time, I made a database and named every single object after a Dragonball Z character. There's a cool game you can play with variables, where you name them words from song lyrics and then try to recreate the lyric in your code. It's easiest with Jimi Hendrix lyrics.

and to the trivial thing, i know VB is not great for big programs, as i believe from what i've told it cant make a lot out of the memory it takes to run, but back in my 11th grade class, about 5 friends and me worked together for about a month to make a working textbased RPG, that we got to work on the network, but not online thanks to no experience with winsock..

/* It took me a second how to realize the obvious way to do hello world with arrays... duh. */
#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
    char s[] = { 0x48, 0x65, 0x6c, 0x6c, 0x6f, 0x2c,
                 0x77, 0x6f, 0x72, 0x6c, 0x64, 0x21,

    printf("%s", s);

    return 0;

although I have no idea what all the above was about... sorry, I'm no programmer, I did have soemthing to say about this!

A Story:

Once the spacebar refused to work. As much as I tried I could not make it work. I tried pushing it lightly, hitting it hard, looking the other way and tapping it - but nothing seemed to work.
So I found a webpage, copied a space and pasted it everytime I need to use it.
The moral? Time consuming as it may be, spaces are very important to me.

The End.
