Two down, one to go

I only have one more final exam to take this semester. Unfortunately it’s dealing with the COBOL programming language. I’ve been studying COBOL for a few months now and I’ve come to the conclusion that it was invented as some cruel punishment for programmers.

If anyone out there would like to see us and possibly win some free computer stuff, you should come to the [H]ard|OCP Hardware Workshop in Dallas on December 20. It starts at 6:00pm and will be followed by a presentation from AMD that will end around 11:00pm. It’s free to get in and there are lots of free prizes, so if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by. We’ll be there.

I came in to work this morning and checked my e-mail as usual. I had 10 new messages and PopFile correctly identified all of them as spam. It’s nice to find an intelligent, well-written program that actually does what it claims to do. It is Open Source and written in Perl, so I guess that’s to be expected.
