    I'm drunk as fuck now btw so I probably don't mean any of this but I just want to say one thing about the job I just got today.

    Since I finished grade school, my life has been in limbo. I always sort of had the potential to do well, but I was too lazy to do anything. I started studying business at an expensive private school that my parents paid for, and dropped out after 3 years (redoing the first year twice). I'm studying computer science now, and while I'm retaking courses this year, again, due to laziness, today I landed the job opportunity of a lifetime. In-house tech support at the hottest consulting company in Scandinavia. I don't know how, but I managed to do well during the interview and I feel for the first time like things are finally starting to make sense. I'm checking out their facebook now and it looks like a company that is a magnet for newly graduated business students. Not only is this an insanely good reference on my CV, but it's a crazy good job opportunity. I'm going to be "the" in-house expert on all the software the consultants use, and further down the line, I'll probably have a chance to start coding for them as well, and maybe even get a full-time job down the line. Bus basically, the point is that landing this job is the equivalent of landing a job in Goldman Sachs, or something like that. It's a huge company, with name recognition, and I'm going to be a key figure in it. Still can't believe it.

    You're going to be seeing a brand new garypagetwo from now on :cool: shot out of a canon and in world domination mode; garypagetwo STYLE :cool: !!!

    your new job, that you've only had an interview for?

    will they make you take a drug test?

    let us know when you are "hired."

    Since you're a CS student now, how would you code a recursive post-order print method for a binary search tree?

    Show up early. Work hard. The Corp system is not you forever, IMO but you will benefit from structure and the mental discipline to focus.

    Watch this. Ignore melvins.

    Full of shit, and I don't think you're real. But I'll take the bait.

    Please do me a HUGE favour and post the first day you start this job. I'd like to know the details of the work you will be doing. Make an old fossil feel good Gar.

    Ahhhh - the good old days of uni. So easy to switch from post-order to pre-order and bam. You can now make a calculator stack in algebraic or RPN.
