    Question of the Week

    The Triumphant return of the question of the week!!!

    I just got back from a summer away from computers. The withdrawal was terrible...

    Anywho, onto bigger and better things:


    Given the choice, would you rather study computer science in college today, or back in the old punch-card days?
    That's Officer 11001001 to you...

    Punch card must have been frustrating. Writing a program on 200 little cards walking down to the computing department finding only to find out when you run your program it doesnít work because you missed a hole some were. Then on your way back you slip and fall now you card are all over the floor and out of order causing you to have a nervous break down.
