    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

    This may actually prove useful to me, I'll have to check it out when I have some time.

    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.
