So I’ve been looking around at graduate schools. So far I’ve applied to three schools, gotten into one, rejected by another, and still waiting to hear from a third. For most of the major universities the admission for the Fall semester has passed. I didn’t want to attend a very large university anyway so I’m not disappointed I missed it. Many of the smaller to mid-sized institution’s deadlines are still a month or more away which means I still have time to apply if I choose to do so. The question stands then as whether or not I want to. Is it worth it to apply to a fourth or fifth school? I mean is it really going to help me any. The only colleges I’ve ever really visited were the ones I’ve attended. So its not like I really know anything about any of these schools. If anyone who has attended or is attending graduate school reads this and has any sort of recommendations. That would be great! I’ll take your word for it that you actually went.
D. Its a fairly new programming language which appears to want to replace C and C++. I’ve known about it for a long time now but I have never really shown any interest in it. Whats the point of it? Is C or C++ broken? Or are they so old and decrepit that they are of no value today? I am, as of right now, not a professional programmer by any means, so I don’t really see the need for D. Not that I saw a need for Ruby, Perl, AND, Python as well. I mean one or two is nice but do we need all three? I don’t really think so. I say we let Pearl die. No real need to keep it around much longer. Java I think is the worst. What was the point of Java again? All the Java programs I use are slow and major memory hogs. And web pages full of Java content are either slow to load or annoying. So I think we should let Java go too. Perhaps they should refocus D to replace Java instead?
