Well, I'm a rusty programmer (VB) that doesn't have much time for practice lately. I want to learn VB.NET next. I work 40+ hours on the online development team for Sony creating tutorials and emulators using mainly Flash, Fireworks and Captivate (soon - we are waiting for the Captivate software). I need to brush up on my ActionScripting.
I am also completing my BS in Computer Information Technology this semester. Unfortunately all my computer classes are done and I'm finishing the stragglers (Accounting 1, Marketing for Managers, Statistics) so I don't have much computer time for fun now. Lots of busy work though. I am also a Teachers Assistant this semester and next semester and I will be an Instructor/Adjunct Professor in the Fall. So you can see that I have fallen behind in programming and now have probably forgotten WAY more than I knew. I plan on getting back into it after this semester.
You may want to read my extensive profile for details on my weight loss, but I am very happy with it. I started off at 330 and am down to 213 today.
I had a three week plateau that was making me anxious and I seem to have gotten past it finally. I would love to know more about how you got in the door for programming and if you can work from home or have to go in. Are you contract or salary? If contract, how did that work for insurance for the surgery?
Oh... I also miss gaming. Since going back to school three years ago and going on full steam I have cancelled cable and not played games. I'm trying to remove distractions but in the process I have lost touch with what is "going on" today. Everyone talks about this game at work and my family talks about what show is on and I just look at them and have no idea right now. Two more years and I will have my Masters and then I will partake of TV and games. I do watch movies occasionally because that doesn't require a weekly committment to the TV.
