Whoah, last post was in 2000. Lots has happened. I dropped out (twice), got and left several jobs, moved to a new city (twice), etc etc etc.
I've kinda decided that being a programmer is for chumps - robotting out crap code for idiots is not what I want to do with my life, and more and more, that seems to what the 'software industry' career entails. Fuck it. I'm trying my hand at something new.
I'm learning Emacs-lisp, slowly. I use XEmacs, though. So nobody on the IRC networks I frequent can help me with the weird problems I run into. This is probably good for me.
I hate things that are good for me.
