YAY!  Awesome, Mango!   :cesar:

I'll be celebrating with you in another 500-something posts.

Congrats Mango!

We all look forward to many more hours with you in the posting trenches alongside us! (...and your mango army of course! ;))

Ok, so I can't count!

Actually, if you ask Erik, I don't do math in my head. I have to have a calculator or our checkbook would be a mess!

Me too, Koko.  I'm a total math loser.  The family makes fun of me.  ;D

I'm good with math up till calculus. Then I start failing.

It's really bad when we play different games with his family that we have to count points on. Everyone else puts two or three numbers together and gets the correct answer in no time. For me, I sit there, counting in my head :P

I'm with you on that. My dad and brother are amazing at math, but I happened to have inherited my mom's disability genes. I got ADHD from her, and math is something I simply can't do... I am incapable of doing mental math. Thank god for IEPs. Without one, I'd have to take my MCAS tests without a calculator (though I'm glad both the MCAS and the SATs are behind me now...).

Congrats Mango and Haids!!! I should start a thread for when I hit 3000 posts... I've got quite a while to go before I move up the ranks again...

For being a math major, I'm not all that great with it, especially some of the basics like mental math and basic algebra (I depend too much on my calculator :P)

A MATH MAJOR?!  Tess, you're a rock star to be able to do that.  The very idea of becoming a math major gives me cold, violent shudders.  I have a lot more respect for you all of a sudden.  ;)

lol thanks. Didn't intend to be a math major, originally only had a minor to go with my  Comp Sci major. Decided might as well upgrade to a major since I could and it wasn't that many more classes.

Post by: Haids1987 on March 09, 2010, 02:01:48 PM
What are you going to do with it, teach math?  'Cause I could bow down and kiss the feet of all my previous math teachers for putting up with my lack of skills!
Title: Re: 2,000th post party!
Post by: tessspoon on March 09, 2010, 02:06:08 PM
he, lord no, don't like math nearly that much (or teaching). Don't intend to do anything with it really, I consider myself a comp sci major mostly. I'm hoping to get some programming job after grad school.

I was going to be a computer science major but I just can't seem to do good in any classes besides English so I am think I may become an English Major now.
Title: Re: 2,000th post party!
Post by: Haids1987 on March 09, 2010, 02:17:55 PM
Yaaaay, English!  That's what I'm doing too.  :yes:  I love English so much I have three literature-themed tattoos.  ;D
Title: Re: 2,000th post party!
Post by: tessspoon on March 09, 2010, 02:24:29 PM
Comp Sci I can do, but I can't interpret books or write worth anything. :P
Title: Re: 2,000th post party!
Post by: Haids1987 on March 09, 2010, 02:27:58 PM
Haha!  We all have our things.  I think that I could probably do computer science, but I much prefer English.

Post by: koko_99_2001 on March 09, 2010, 02:48:17 PM
lol, this is great! I started out as an interior design and architecture major, but realized that I didn't have the aptitude for it. I still like to draw house plans though.

I ended up majoring in speech therapy, and who knew how much science went into it! I barely made it through neuroscience as well as anatomy! Always said I wouldn't go into a science field... ::)

Back on semi-topic...I believe we once had threads for people of different post ranks, where you could only post in that thread, if you were that rank :P

I'm going into Web Design and Interactive Media next year, and I'm worried about the amount of math I'm going to have to do. But I suppose I'll cross that bridge if/when I come to it... Right now I'm just ready to move out of high school and go right into my intended field of study... I'm only taking Forensic Science to fill my graduation requirements...

In on-topicness: Are those threads still in existence? If not, they should be created once again. They'd be great ways for people to up their post count (and I really need that...)

I don't care that it's off topic. This conversation thread is fantastic.

For the record, I have the highest respect for math majors (...I happen to be thrilled to be dating someone who will be majoring in math next year). It takes general skill and awesomeness. XD

I was going to major in CS, but I decided to major in Game Design since that's more applicable to what I want to do, and I can graduate in 4 years instead of 5. XD (In other words, CS is also a ridiculously awesome major :P)
Title: Re: 2,000th post party!
Post by: tessspoon on March 09, 2010, 09:15:15 PM
Where are you going that CS is a 5 year major?

We don't have a Game Design major, sadly. That would be a really cool major :yes:. All we have is Computer Science and Computer Information Systems. Although we do have a Game Programming and Computer Graphics class and a AI class. I've never worked as hard and as much as I did for that Game class, but it was also one of the most fun classes I've had. AI... not so much. Though that's probably because that's the one class I still haven't finished making up work for and have been procrastinating on for months. ::)

I wanted to go into games at one point, but now I have no idea where in CS I want to specialize in.
Title: Re: 2,000th post party!
Post by: Rosella on March 09, 2010, 09:27:34 PM
I'm going to RIT. They have a co-op program where you take 3 quarters (the equivalent of one year) over the course of your college life to work at actual companies. The Game Design major has the co-op too, but apparently they want you to co-op during the summer or something...I'm not really sure, but they say it's a 4 year program. XD

I'm not sure what the game programming classes are like though. The one you described being in (where you got to get experience and level up) seemed ridiculously fantastic. XD

And why the change of heart? I mean, anything in particular make the rest of CS seem interesting? :P

I agree with you, Rosella, this is awesome.  ;D

Computer science is something I thought about doing as well, but my heart really is in books and English, so that won over.  I'm going to (eventually) be a librarian, though I'll for sure have to take some computer classes in that field anyway. :yes:

I kinda used to think would be the only thing I'd be interested in, but now that I've had a lot more experience programming I've realized that I really love programming in general and can have a lot fun working on non-games. Plus I realized how hard it can be to get into the gaming industry.

Maybe the Word Association Thread. But even that's not immune. XD

The school i'm going to next year currently has no game design major, but they are instituting it in the very near future. i was told that it would probably be in effect when I'm in my sophomore year. i was also told that the classes for the first year of that major would be the same as the first year classes for the major I'm going into (web design an interactive media). so I can always switch if i want to...

I'd say most threads on the forum have trouble staying on topic in general. In all the years i've been here, there have always been issues with on-topic-ness... XD

At the first version of it I think we had a discussion of when a useless conversation beco'es usefull thus beeing offtopic in that threat. I found that rather usefull 'yself *nods*
