    Haven't actually started it yet (although I technically have, because I'm carrying over a Mathematics credit unit from Engineering. So I start in a few months, but I'm quite happy with the idea. Spending time outside of school or uni (just working) is horrible. You don't see people your own age unless you find the time to catch up with them outside of work - which doesn't happen, but I daresay that's more my fault than theirs.

    Seems as though the filter doesn't apply in VMs? :cer_laugh:

    As long as you have a plan. That's the main thing. In terms of programming, I haven't done much more than you, but I think I can offer two pieces of advice:

    Learn how to think, not what to write. If you understand the fundamentals, then each language is just a different way of coding the same methods.

    Also, a lot of the code-monkey stuff is going to be outsourced. You need to have other skills that you can apply to the job, otherwise someone else is going to be able to write the same code and be prepared to charge less. Whether that's just people skills or some artistic ability, it's a selling point - you see what I mean?

    I did 6 months of Engineering and decided it wasn't what I wanted to do, so now I have transferred to teaching (maths and languages). I start that course at the end of Feb and I'm already a lot happier about it.

    Just working for a bit until I get back to Uni. Although with 3 days a week, I'm not earning as much as I'd like, so I'm considering having a look around.

    What courses are you looking at? The application system over there confused me. Here, everything is based on your final score at the end of school. If you get the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking) required for a course, you're in. If you don't, you're not.

    It just looked like the one I have posted in my gallery. You can keep using it, I don't mind. XD I was just wondering if you found it in there. :P

    Sorry to bug you, but where'd you get your avatar?

    That's your next upgrade. 4GB. Not a priority, but considering how cheap RAM is, now...

    Yeah, it will be worth it for the PSU. On enough specs, windows 7 will be as fast. How much ram do you have?

    In that case, I'd go for it.

    Any news on a power supply?

    I don't know what you're doing in the department, then, but new PSU>Windows 7.

    XP is little lighter, sure but you will be left behind at some stage. It also doesn't support DX10 or 11, So some newer games will fail to work if they don't use DX9.

    Do you have a Windows 7 license?

    That website you get sent to when you click that creepily distorted TDWP banner. Is it your blog, or something? 'Cause it's funny. :3
