wahoo! faster code!!  
I was redoing some old code after work and somehow transformed an old function from 57 lines of code to only 4! This function (Getword / strseek) has been in every one of my programming projects since late 1999.

I decided to redo the code because of a comment SSG Ozment made the other day. I was fixing the Alpha Roster because some Platoon Sergeant sorted it incorrectly and seriously mixed up all the Troop's data. He said, "Have it done by the end of the day." I said, "It will probably take me a few hours, Sergeant." He said, "Then you need to find a more efficient way of doing it." Makes sense...

Sometimes words make more sense coming out of someone elses mouth.

Oh, and yes... i did find a more efficient way to fix the roster.. task underlings to do parts of it ;)

That makes perfect sense, what else are underlings good for ;). Anyway, I've decided that I won't abandon my forming engineering work afterall...well not completely. I'm going to minor in CS because I have done half the classes anyway (so once I get back into the swing of things later I can start helping out if you encounter any coding problems). That'll be cool, I don't think we ever really worked on a project together with the exception of that brainstorming session in Young Library. Besides, programming probably won't be so bad when I'm not taking straight engineering courses (when calculus 2 is your "favorite" class, it is time to switch majors). Lol, anyway, good job on the ruckmarch, and I am sure that you'll be able to handle the special forces training when you go for it.

"when calculus 2 is your "favorite" class, it is time to switch majors", lol.. that's crazy man.

PS: We _should_ get together and work on a project one of these days. Hopefully something to make a little money ;)

Re: Definitely
Money, huh? Sounds good to me! Although ultimately UK gets any money I earn for the next few years ;)
