Press "Enter" To Develop A Burning Hatred For Your Professor
color cycle (slow)
No lab assignment should ever involve a part in which one can reasonably be expected to press "enter" over five thousand times in a row, counting keypresses, as the only way to count the number of instructions a C program executes during the course of its execution. (Not code-lines, assembly instructions.) And not once, but four times.

This is actually the first assignment I've abandoned out of disgust and physical pain (tendonitis) rather than inability to continue. I can go on, it just hurts, and it's not a reasonable assignment.

*blinks at icon* That new? It's absolutely gorgeous.

Yes, that's a commission I bought from frameacloud. I actually need to switch it; this is before he completed the coloring job, but it's done now. I just haven't had the chance to fix it.

The full image is linked to (on two art sites) from this post.

I want talent like that.

Good for you. I wouldn't have done it either, being the stubborn bastard that I am.

And yes, nice icon. Very appropriate for a chameleonic dragon.

Maybe you could write a small program that generates returns for you and counts them? Dull and repetitive tasks are what computers do best!

Aye, I was considering writing a shell script. Problem is, I couldn't figure out how to make it ni over the printf()s and si over everything else, and hence I decided just to finish the C run and then head for the dorm.

Kistaro, I don't get out of class until 3 30 pm, so I should be back at my dorm a little after that. I hope I'll see you over around then. Check this out...
