Well I'll let this slide by on the basis that you haven't reviewed my
resume :)  Due to my previous experiences I've done everything with
computers from technical support through software development.  Yes
programming is fun and yes its a huge market, I've just never found it to
be a "turn-on."  I've got a RADIUS server, a terminal server, a billing
system, an online shopping cart system, and the start to an OS under my
belt. :)  Colleges need to learn that many students are getting the same
courses while in high school and that they should offer a fast-track
program for those who are ahead of the game.  I entered college knowing
C,C++, Pascal, some PERL, and some x86/Pentium assembler, all in addition
to the electronics courses I had.

The only point I'm hoping to show is that the colleges have become a
corporation and that they are only interested in profit and not the
personal instruction of students as they once were.
