Well that’s it. I’m done 1A Software. What can I say, it was awesome. It was pretty crazy with all of the work during the term, but I survived. During the term, there wasn’t really much but work and the other softies being crazy. Wonderful times.
I think some of the best times was with the CCFers studying away in the third floor of SLC. Studying together, being stupid together, eating, and praying together for twelve hours a day really helps for getting to know each other.

See, Java makes you go through unnecessary hoops and annoyances to do hammer it into submission. Apparently, this is “more safe” and “reinforces good programming practice”.
Well damn, I guess I was wrong about Blizzard. They just released the real Burning Crusade trailer, in glorious, epic cinematic fashion. Once again, they deliver. I’m sorry I ever doubted you.
I think I’ve just realized how liberating it is to be a not-Windows user. I’ve been a not-Windows user for over two years now, but I’ve discovered this only recently, now that I’m a Mac user as well. Keep in mind that this discussion is limited to real life and not on the Internets, because the number of not-Windows users you come in contact with rises sharply. Continue reading
