Ah, well it's good to know most are not poisonous. I still wonder about the golfer spiders, though.
That sounds like a pretty good class to take. Nice to hear you made some side cash from it! What was the programming language you learned? Most people would not consider HTML nor CSS to be a programming language as it is just basics.

Some are, certainly. We have a few of those. =( But most would be harmless.
It was an IT class. I think the best description I could give about it was that I learned how to learn programming languages in it, haha. We had a lot thrown at us, and half of the assessments coming from a bunch of projects that combined them all. And I have made a (mostly simple) website from it which got me some $$$ for a friend of dad's, and maybe someday I'll make myself a small site too.

Are they poisonous spiders? It makes a difference if their not or if they are. Over here we mainly just have the black widow to look out for.
What type of class was it? Have you ever tried to apply it to anything?

That we do, but then I suppose it's a bit blown out of proportion. Stereotyping and all. It's more we have a lot of spiders rather than a lot of big spiders.
I see. I learnt a bit of HTML in uni too, although it hadn't been the focus of that class.

Oh, I live in the United States so I would not know much of anything over there. Sounds similar, though. Also, you guys got a lot of big spiders over there from what I have seen on the internet.
The class list is actually limited and aside from the fast-track classes that start in the second part of the semester the other other classes require introductory courses in order to take the classes. I'm hoping to get by with a class or two. Hopefully HTML Introductory as a online class.

I'm not sure, but probably. But it's in the same uni (Sydney) and I am an Australian citizen anyway. So that's probably why I don't know. =p
Yes, the question was about the classes.

Is your Phd requiring residency?
Moreno Valley, just a couple cities away from family. Isolating myself from negativity and trying to be around people who are more influential to me and who would like to see and help me succeed. It is a nice city and they have everything just down the street; it's terrific. What would what be in? Are you referencing to the available classes?

Phds take another 3 years.
I see, where did you move to? And good luck with finding a course too - what would they be in?

Yes, it was about time for something new and fresh. That's great to hear, you didn't waste anytime! How many years is that going to take for your career major?
Things are going as good as can be expected for the moment. I just finished moving a bit ago and I'm trying to find a couple college courses on the open class list, but many of them are fast-tracks held towards the second half of the semester. Priority registration is quite the issue.

Hello! I spy a name change.
I've finished up my undergrad course with an extra year doing the 'joy' of honours. This year I'll be starting my phd. ~
How goes on your end?

Hello, bobandbill! Are you still in school? I apologize, I did not recall this conversation. Hope all has been well.

Thanks! And I'm doing science (physics and computational). Currently in the middle of my third year.
Good luck with the job getting. They can be a bother.

Best of luck to you! Which courses? That seems like a good amount of time, enjoy!
I'm just in the middle of summer trying to get a job. It's definitely not the easiest thing to do.

In the middle of uni exams now, so busy. But after this week I'll have a month off, which is nice.

How are you doing?
