Ok, so my fellow intern here at Unisys is clueless.
He's computer science/engineering major at a respected university near here.
How he manages that without ever having used an OS except windows is beyond me.
He comes whining to me about how he's trying to tech himself java and don't have a compiler on his machine. He has shell accounts on his university's unix servers, but of course he doesn't know how to access them, and I have a feeling that he could crash a freeBSD machine in seconds.
So i find the JDK tools on sun's website and send him a link to it. any minute now he'll come over and whine about how he can't figureout how to install it. Then he won't know how to use it.
He's a CS major! and a rising senior!
And these are the people that will be getting hired over me because my degree is in Anthro rather than CS?
Makes me want to climb a water tower with a high powered rifle. (there ya go tommy, I like guns in some instances.)
Anyway, I need to go talk to some one about how long to leave to get to the airport in rush hour traffic. My parents are flying into philly at 6PM and are making me pick them up. *sigh*
I get to take the train out, but they have a loving son to pick them up.
I've seen worse than that guy. Oh yes, much.
oh, me too.
It's just irritating because he's a moron and yet he gets by because of some stupid piece of paper somewhere which says that he should know more about puters than I do.
Did you know that not a single CS major has worked at the helpdesk at my school? Ever?
And that they come to us when their computer's die?
There's something wrong with this picture, that's why I wanna borrow a gun.
how much you wanna bet hes being paid better too... <lol> as tragic as it is, its the sad sad truth. maybe hes a distant cousin of some higher up. one never knows. :)
$2 an hour more.
and he has no connections.
and he brought up that conversation, not me.
what an ass. <angry voice> kill him! <lol>
will a 9mm glock do?
Nicely. Very nicely.
Got a laser sight for that?
