2 of the classes i needed to take this quarter to continue on in my classes had filled up by the time my transfer orientation had occurred. So now I have to wait until next quarter and i am not happy the way OSU has dealt with my transfer. I am smart enough to know which classes i need to take and could of scheduled my self. long before the classes were filled.
Oh! and i got the job i had interviewed for so thats a good thing i can't wait to start.

In my boredom I have forced myself out of my shell and have started to compete in something! Do I have what it takes? Can I handle another ego blow if I lose?
I tried to compete in the Google competition with the puzzles in the Davinci Code thing I was sure i was a shoe in for that and nothing :(
But this is different! I can do this.. wait.. only 1,000 winners go on! OH no! I can't be in the 1% of the coders that try for this. but maybe I am. Do I have the confidence to even try for the first competition?
What if i win! I would feel so smart I wouldn't believe it. 1% of the people that tried and I get chosen. Oh I can't stand the pressure why can't it be September 5th, NOW!
WAIT!.. topcoder competetion just for college students! (click,type,click) YOU'RE REGISTERED!!... Oh, Shit! What have I done?
Also, kudos to Dell for spreading the word. I am sure such a problem has been addressed more then a small blurb of a link on the start page has been used to get the attention of the 4.1 million batteries that need to be recalled. And of course it has been mentioned in a marketing e-mail sent to all of its home and office users.

Have you seen what the PC has done? Look around you and you'll see those that "think" they know everything about a computer. Yet, all they do is read e-mails, make spreadsheets or documents, or make a blog and they have gull to call themselves Computer Geeks!
What ever happened to the non-socialite, goofy looking person who knows everything about technology or sci-fi and nothing about anything else? I'll tell you what! The one thing that only they were good at has become "mainstream"; so, they have been forced into other cultures ways of life. I hardly know anyone anymore who I can say is truly a Computer Geek.
First, I will talk of those whom I have seen on a daily basis and call themselves Computer Geeks. One of which i have seen shopping at of all places Abercrombie and Fitch.
There are no longer just Computer Geeks anymore and I feel as though i am a dieing breed of person who wants to learn Assembly just so i can say i know how to write in assembly. Or one whom hardly sees the light of day because they have been sitting in front of a computer for most of it.
Yet the Internet is in high demand and computers are being sold for dirt-cheap. Strangely, enough though the demand for tech jobs is still rising even though it rated many times as the top five jobs to be in. They are so high that the people they are hiring are shit that think because they know a little SQL or can point and click they're way through a form tutorial in visual basic that they have a clue what’s going on.
Finally, I ask all of you true Computer Geeks to rise up again against the oppression and do not conform away. Go back into your closet and find your pocket protectors and get your shirts that need them. Take out those contacts and find your huge glasses and wear them proudly. Tuck away those dreams of getting that blond girl whom asks you to do her math homework. It's not flirting, she's that stupid. Chose your hero's based on brains not brawn (or the amount of money they have in their pocket) and remember whom shall really inherit the earth!
My name is Aaron Greenberg, if you haven't figured that out already, I am a 22 year old Cincinnatian (the ohio kind). Although, i was born and raised in cincinnati, i am going to be moving to columbus in 11 days! I am moving because of my girlfriend (whom i met online) has convinced me it was best for us to have me transfer with her to OSU so we can be together for the rest of our lives. Yay! the rest of my life with my signification Other! We have been knownn each other for 3 years and she is the most important part of my life.
I am a geek to the core as you shall see and computers/programming is my passion. I currently work as a Co-op for GE, yes the same GE that makes your light bulbs or microwave or fidge, in the aviation section, in the data quality dept. Know the new GEnx thats comming out? I saw the first one being built for the first time!
I am also Jewish and very upset about the current war. I am not exactly a practicing jew but that for personal reasons. I have been to israel and i have visit the places that have been bombed. Do you know what its like to see a place where you have been turned into a crater?
that pretty much all you need to know about me
back to work!
