So it's basicly what I do.

i fuckin hear you on unrelated courses.....its those classes that keep me out of college.....
also.....
i started as a Web Designer.....Java defeated me.
then.....
i went in to Business Administration.....and then Biology took care of that.
fucking unrelated courses.....why the hell do i care about the parts of a cell and a microscope?
do explain?
im certain i can go through life not knowing anymore about biology other than how to read the label on the back of a box.
Forum based roleplays


.......do exist.

I ended up taking humanities and science electives I mostly cared about so that's ok I guesss...
it's the technical requirements that I don't care for... I don't want to learn about transistor circuits and signal control systems but I guess I have to if I want to program computers...

I had to study boatloads of economy for which I had absolutely no interest, the bunch of electronics were mostly easy but they were also a drag, and the signal control stuff made me want to crash into an iceberg. Oh and I also failed physics in my first semester :lol:

I haven't done any signal control stuff, what is it? I'm taking a course were I have to learn about logic gates and stuff though, we're going to learn how the computer works from logic gates to high level programming languages © and back.

My college offers no programming or computer courses other than a basic program on how to use MS Word, which is incredibly awful for someone with an interest in computer engineering.

It's things like encoding analog signals into amplitude modulation/frequency modulation and decoding them. Lots of Fourier transforms and complex numbers and such.

That's a shame. Computer courses are really fun.

Sounds like a bother.

I guess I understand that...after all, India has only, what, 1.2 billion of the people living in Asia. :roll:

Oh I'm sorry I meant that I don't really see people based on their geographical point of origin. They should be judged for the merit of the colour of their skin and for merit only.

Exactly! That is why the smileys are yellow because that is the superior colour. :D

But what about colorblind people, how can they judge people based on their colorful merit?
