Time seems to elapse faster as I get closer and closer to graduation... Wheee.. Please stop the earth, I want to get off. (misquote)

I seem to be in a C++ loving stage. Last year I was crazy about PHP3, doing all kinds of nice database access and building websites. Now I'm content to create nice simple programs for Computer Science class using C++. Hey, at least I'm not bored or giving up on school.

The school I go to has a new IP subnet. 253 IP addresses to play with, yay! Of course, DHCP makes it easy to move over, but there are some lingering problems with our BESS Proxy Filtering (censorship) server. It doesn't recognize the new IPs as allowed computers. Too bad I can't fix it, it's out of my hands.

I think I've come to a decision about college: I'm deferring for a year. I'll be going to WPI then, so $500 will be on the way there soon. From all I've heard, from friends and family, it is probably best to take this year off and work. Hopefully it'll be good for whatever capability I still have for learning stuff in classrooms.
