Cool im taking a computer science class online

hi

http://www.udacity.com/

this is one of the best applications of this wretched web of worthlessness i've seen yet

essentially you can take college-level courses for free on the interweb with professors talking on video cameras and whatnot. i'm takin CS212 like a boss

in the future maybe we will make time and money constraints to higher education essentially obsolete and i think this is a cool thing

unfortunately at this moment you are shit outta luck unless you want to become a computer nerd, but i hope in time this concept will expand to include basically everything

yeah but thats different because you still have a schedule to adhere to

this is more or less "do it at your own pace i dont care"

also, more hi-tech

yeah i feel like a right idiot here

i guess i don't know many of python's language constructs well enough, and my math and logic thinking must have declined a lot since i was in school, because many of the assignments stump me pretty well

Once I learned the basics of python, I never want to go back. C just frustrates me now.

ya, python is just really beautiful and fun

c is frankly pretty much dead (or should be) for everything except systems/embedded programming

it had a good run of 40 years or so but it's p. much time to bury it

Right now, the only reason why I use C is because it's so much faster than python in N-body simulations.

Fawk yea, gonna do this as a test run in Iraq before committing to a credit-earning course. (To test the internet etc. etc. see if it's possible). I know lots of dudes do it, but I still wanna give it a test run first. I'm afraid the internet will 'esplode randomly (as it does) right when I need to turn in an assignment/take a test or something.
