comment What do you do with coder's block?
yes, spend a few days pulling pints, listening to bands and camping. It's good fun plus getting paid! Getting a break from the day to day is the best way to recharge your batteries

comment Python is slowly replacing C in universities. Does this move degrade the quality of CS students?
Learning C for the sake of saying you have learned C is a waste of time. Learning C for specific problem solving and learning experiences is not. One of the best courses I studied at university was operating systems with an awful lot of C.
