Zathras Re:No Problems here (1231 comments)

Best to say nothing when nothing to say than give wordy evidence of the fact. ;-)
May lurk for another 9 years perhaps, yes?!

Some Early Adopters Stung By Ubuntu's Karmic Koala

Zathras No Problems here (1231 comments)

Zathras upgrade one PC to Windows 7 ... very bad
upgrade another PC with Ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 ... very good
Never use Windows 7.
Ubuntu 9.10 is the one.
Zathras like Ubuntu 9.10 very much because it works!

Should Geeks Skip College?

Zathras Been-there-done-that (224 comments)

Zathras have over 100 credit hours towards a degree in Software Engineering (SWE). Had to drop out after 4 semesters in a one and ahalf year time span. Zathras, knew going into college, didn't have enough money to finish. Zathras make plan to take all elective requirements (programming, compiler design, operating system design, etc.) first. Plan to return over the years to finsh off core requirments (english, history, etc.).

Zathras been working over 16 years as a SWE. Never finished degree. Zathras make 6 digits now. Looking to retire soon. Zathras has worked double hard to educate himself and work through the years instead of getting all the education done up front. Education is part of life. It continues as one works.

Zathras work with too many degree'd/geeks who think they know all. Only to show them how much they have yet to learn. But Zathras will never discourage one from going or completing college. Must work harder if you do not.

Zathras only say, "Never stop educating yourself. With or without a degree."
