Who has seen Red Green? My CS 350 teacher sounds about like him. Not only that, he looks like Red's overweight, geeky brother. I can almost see him dancing along up at the Possum Lodge.

He is also a complete tool. He's going to take all of his PowerPoint class notes and turn them into Real files. Why? So you can hear his oh-so-beautiful voice overlaid with the presentation. It will also change his presentations from ~500K files into ~25MB blocky, blurry, unreadable gobs of video.

Why has he made this decision? Well, he knows nothing of real-world computer use. Everything is theory to him, and we live in a perfect world. He just got back from a streaming media conference at the U of I. Being the little blind sheep he is, streaming is now officially the greatest thing since sliced bread. What really pisses me off is I'm on a modem. Why must all teachers suck so much?

Dammit, I really should have passed this course the first time, when I had a teacher who sucked slightly less.

We'll see how my other classes go.

Class Report #2

My COBOL class is going to kick my ass until I figure out all the mainframe stuff. I understand how to use such systems, but the inner workings are still somewhat mysterious to me. It's not the language that's bad. I can take that. The problem is the environment. Mainframes were never meant to be used by actual people. ;) Next week, though, I'm gonna own that class. Mark my words.
