Just some Canadian dude with a decent taste in music, film, literature, beer and coffee. Interested in computer programming & web development. Can be offensive.

Why does everyone say I need to go to a psychologist? :boggle:

This was a great answer. I do, in fact, live in Sudbury - and I applied at Vale for a number of jobs (am now applying at other places for positions like Web Designer (which seem to be in need in this city). And I've noticed the PLC requirements for some jobs (Bestech, for example). I've never even looked into that kind of work before. Again, you provided me with exactly what I needed.

In regards to the MUD games, yes. In the games there are very complex curing and poisoning systems and you need to work out the optimal curing strategy, which is usually best left to a script (as things would be moving too fast for the player to do anything about). I never got it dead-on (nobody has, though some have gotten close), but I try my best. Outside of the game, though, I don't they have much worth - aside from the logical standpoint. They're rather cumbersome. Or maybe I'm just bad at it ;)

Touche. I never heard that quote. Love that Chris Rock.

Thanks to this post, I actually went about looking at the GED option. Unfortunately, I have to wait 'til February to get a shot at it, but that gives me plenty of study-time and time to raise $100 to take the test. Thanks for the inspiration. I already regret my lack of effort and I'm already 24, I can't imagine what it'd be in 15-25 years.

You know what, you're right. I've screwed the pooch too long. I spent too much time playing Dwarf Fortress and building scripts in Lua for my MUD games rather than got my education. I'm lazy. I'm going to bust my butt over this. I realize I may come across a little sarcastic right now, but I'm serious. Sometimes, it takes someone blunt to make the truth apparent.
