So it took 3 hours on Google and quite a bit of frustration, but I've finally figured out how to access an SQL server through the program I'm working on. If only my teacher had gone over this rather than talking about random things that aren't relevant to the course.

Because ♥♥♥♥ THIS SHIT! #CAPSLOCKDAY ?

I refuse to call him a professor until he starts acting like one. The guy is hardly a programmer. Usually when a teacher asks questions in class, it's to test the knowledge of the students. This guy asks questions because he's confused...constantly. He'll be showing us sample code (which another professor wrote for him) and he won't understand how part of it works, so he'll ask us. And then he'll stand there for 10 minutes trying to figure it out. Then he'll tell us to take a 10 minute break so he can continue to try and figure it out.Then when we get back from break, he just skips it. That happens.. constantly.

We had a lab where we had to read information from a file and output it in a specific way, and now we're re-using that code to read from a database rather than a file. He spent the entire lecture explaining to us how tables are organized in SQL... which is incredibly pointless considering that we were already given a database to use for the lab, and the tables were all already created. He did not go over how to connect to SQL at all, he did not go over how to output data from SQL.. at all. The guy is incredibly clueless when it comes to teacher, and almost as clueless when it comes to programming.

If that is what he does don't call him a teacher either. Because he is clearly not. Call him the dude that stands in front of the class or something. Cause it sounds like he certainly isn't either a professor or a teacher.

Teachers are those who didn't have the skills / "imagination" / desire to make money. :P It's annoying how they make some money by... failing at their job anyway.

I really like your title, Etta.

Speaking of haunting, aren't you like 40 yet?

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

I'm going to assume you are being sarcastic and pass on giving you a piece of my mind. Instead I'll have a good chuckle while silently cursing your possible stupidity. Tee...He..........He

34? Wow, aren't you about ready for a nursing home then Etta?

Doing alright. Same old same old basically. Been playing a lot of SWTOR lately. How have things been?

Yeah, don't mind me. I'm just a wannabe gangsta from Finland.



Also, we don't need no education. :angel: Everything that is cool (invented by Americans) -- they haven't got those skills from school. I appreciate entertainment like music & sports, mastering those requires "hundreds of repeats" / "supernatural talent" every day.

Meh. I'm just saying "everything" I appreciate can't really be taught. But really, don't mind me, I'm criticizing everything lately. No offence - most Americans are kinda fake. Still I somehow really like your culture. That kind of pride Eminem has for example.

A lot of Americans are fake. They try to act like someone they are not. Which is really annoying to me as well. They try to be the movie star/athlete/whoever they look up too instead of themselves. Makes them seem really fake. Be yourself people, more people will like you that way!

Busy being an adult (lol). Working just not as fun when you moved up to a senior designer position. Been a busy year, apart from that, all good. :)

How's SWTOR these days? I used to play it a lot just before it went F2P. I'm pretty much free from now till next year. Need to catch up on my gaming.

SWTOR is fun. There's a new expansion coming out in December, so they released a leveling perk for subs that makes it so that all your have to do are the class story missions to level to 55. That's pretty cool. Still get to experience the story and will be ready for all the new stuff when it comes out.

Congrats on the promotion. I just got one of those at work too. Finally making close to what I'm actually worth there. Heh.
