And while I'm thinking of it...

I have gone a week without writing anything of substance. This annoys me a bit, mostly because that has been exactly what my week has been like. Eat, sleep, study.


Business Statistics is making me remember maths I haven't used since 1979. I feel like an idiot newbie in that class.The lecturer in Data Communications said "My first program was written on punch cards." Yeah? So was mine. But unlike him I was dragged up on a farm and went to high school at Wellington. There were 400 kids there, but only eight of us were interested in the computer and no one was qualified to teach Computer Studies to us. No University for this little black bat.

Until now, that is. I have 20 years of experience on home computers, PCs, data entry terminals, UNISYS mainframes, HP and TANDEM minis, networks and such, but no little pieces of paper to say I know what I know. Fuckenell there's still a lot I don't know. dammit.

Why can't I make a living writing my silly stories?
