I've complained to Haken about the need for paging on large and lengthy threads... But he's too busy.

30K... I just burped and bout 30x 30K files were transferred in that effort *and* time - and my line is crap.

Interesting though... never thought of this as sycophantic... hmmmm...

hey cool, i have a couple friends that go there! but they're freshmen so you probably don't know them. oh ya, and i agree w/ you about never wanting to go back to high school. or at least i will once i am well into college and can legitimately make that claim. my high school is HARD. and not just because of it being college prep--i live 45 minutes away. plus, it's in the city and we don't have a parking lot. basically, you have to get here at like 7 to get good parking, so i have to leave home at 6:15 every morning. of every school day. for four years. with a teenager's sleeping patterns. and do homework the entire time i'm actually at home(usually about 4 hours awake). it's a wonder i manage to watch as much firefly, buffy and angel as i do.

hey, arden! if you end up in the new york area studying film or theater directing, drop me a line! i met my musical collaborator through another fan community, so who knows? maybe lightening can strike twice

39 here, which is okay and certainly beats the alternative. I'm in the sixth year of a bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts (you want fries with that?) at Widener University. Widener University, named for a fellow that went down on the Titanic.

Went down on the Titanic? My goodness, that may be the filthiest thing I've ever heard.

Anyhoo, I'm getting that degree so I can get all those really good jobs that went to folk with 4 year degrees in underwater basket weaving and such.

I've got a job in the IT industry that didn't tank and I work at a semi-large Mid-Lantic convenience store chain that is spelled only with the letters "W" and "A". Anyone who knows what company that is may feel honored by my presence.

Now for the important stuff. I've got an absolutely stellar girlfriend who understands me and puts up with me anyway. A housefull of pets and no kids. No, strike that, my pets are my kids. Two cats, one mine, one hers, two goofy, crazy, friendly pit bulls (don't believe everthing you see in the media) and a cranky Boston Terrier that pushes everyone around.

Love Firefly, can't wait for the BDM and I'm in danger of wearing out my DVDs before the movie comes out.

The more I get to know people the more I like my dogs.

Ah, I reread and see that SPACE BBS is sycophantic... Got it.

I am not selling anything, just think
the "despair" demotivation posters are
funny... what after all of the touchy
feely corporate motivation classes my
last work place forced us to take. We
all started showing up with the demotivator
mugs at the seminars.

Is that funny or ironic. Could be both.
But who cares ;-)

I'm 26 and I can relate to the directionless stance. I'm working in the area that I've been trained for, but that doesn't mean I have direction.

As for schooling, I went to University of Guelph my first year, transferred to McGill, got a degree in Linguistics and went to work at Tim Hortons. I followed that up with a certificate in Technical Writing from Fanshawe College in London. Now I live in Montreal. But still lacking in the directional department.

Yay, another Missouri person! Although of course I agree about the slight lack of culture here, it's always very neat to find other fans nearby. I've only been to NYC once, but I LOVED it. I can't wait to go back some day. Anyway, very nice to "meet" you!

At 46 I appear to be in the top age cohort on this site. The funny thing is, despite a definite expansion of the waist, a need for bifocals, and a few (heh) gray hairs, I'm basically the same perplexed geek I was at 17.

I have, at different times, been a baker, a janitor, a day-laborer, a tank driver, a clerk in a drug rehab center, a network administrator, a student, a graduate student, an ex-graduate student, an unemployed anthropologist (no unemployment benefits for that, believe me), and, God help me, a phone survey taker. At the moment I'm the father of a 5 and 3/4's year-old, and I do contract work for a certain rather large company in Redmond, Washington, which, I suspect, is attempting to take over the world even as we speak. I hope, someday, to be a published writer and maybe even a screenwriter, if my gorram writing partner (USC film school, so it figures) would ever get off his dead butt and finish his part of the project we've been working on...since before I had a child.

Maybe it's no wonder I'm tired....

Well, it sounds kinda cool, but it's really sorta boring. (=

Aside from my BSc, I'm also graduating with a minor in math. I'm only 3 classes away from a BA in Mathematics (standard). All three are relatively easy, but it really boils down to a question of money and whether or not I want to spend my summer before grad school working and taking all three of those classes at once, which I don't think I want to do, hehe.

Unfortunately, the astrophysics program here is really just an extension of the physics department, so I'm practically graduating with a degree in professional physics with emphasis in astrophysics.

If I had it all over to do again, I'd probably go with aerospace or electrical engineering. Well, that or attend a different university where astrophysics was a bit more established and offered more than a couple of courses into the technical aspects of astronomy (i.e., more hands on experience in observational methods, data analysis and reduction, etc.).

Overall though, I've enjoyed the physics classes I've taken here. Solving problems is infinitely better (in my opinion ;) to writing essays for "non-physics" related classes. (=

Good going! Sometimes it's discouraging to work (making a living), go to school, and make a personal live. I fell out of it 4 times (school) and realized my mistake this very last time; each time there was a work crunch, I gave up several class sessions (might be just a week or two) and each time managed to fall behind enough that I failed. Finally made school my priority over work - School is what will make me, work just does it for someone else.

You can see by all the posts that this wasn't a stupic question. Thank you for your openness in asking this question, Sanmi. Look how it has given us this opportunity to get to know each other better.

I'm new around here, 46 and love it. I've been into SF&F since I read the Hobbit in elementary school. I'm a mommy with 7-year old twin girlies a doctorate in public health and work for myself. All y'all in school, hang in there. I went to school until I was 35 some kind of way or another, yet I survived to co-found a non-profit and get enuf sense to quit and work for myself.

I love swinging up to 50 -- where I can "wear purple and channel my crone!!" And it's fun to be an old mama and watch all your peers point and laugh while their kids move out and start their own families.

Huh. Small planet, ain't it?

I call Cornwall a small town 'cause after college in Kingston and uni in Ottawa, I can't go back to a town that has only one bookstore, one music store (neither of which even bother trying anymore ), and about half a comicbook store (mostly sports cards, and a few shelves of Marvel books).

Plus everything's so spread out that you have to either have a car or rely on the bus.

That planet's comin' up awfully fast. . .
