More like the fact that I can write code at all, when all my (pretty much wasted) education was in the theatrical arts. =^|

    chexmix, as one who also isn't working in their major anymore (I was a chemist, now I'm an engineer), there are tons of things I use from school in my daily gig. I just don't ruin my clothes with acid anymore. :)

      Yep, the general state of my wardrobe improved mightily after switching to computer science, and I never poisoned myself once after that. (Jenda: not yet, though there have been days where I was close...)

        Not even a caffeine overdose? ;-)

        Enoch was right!
        Enjoy the last years of Rome.

      So far the only application of theater to programming I have found is my ability to be relatively convincing when handwaving: "oh, absolutely! I know what's wrong with this code and how to fix it!"

      UPDATE IN IAMBIC PENTAMETER:

      "'Zounds! What ails this code I can divine --
      and fix it, too, or else I shall resign."

    Gee, I don't feel quite so bad now - I actually got my BA in English and now I work with computers. There's not necessarily a huge difference really. Plus it gives me a good base for creative problem solving and "thinking outside the box" (although it's sometimes hard to think outside the box when you sit in a cube ;-)

[Tanktalus]: perldigious: I'm not looking to get rich. I'm looking for interesting work, with good continuity of employment, and maintenance of our current lifestyle. (An improvement wouldn't be bad, either, but that's not a requirement ;) )
erix enjoys the confusion++
[Your Mother]: :P
[Tanktalus]: Without confusion, I'd be out of a job ;)
[Tanktalus]: Already. :D
[Lady_Aleena]: Your Mother, I wish it did have a way to put in a directory to search.
[Your Mother]: Thatís silly. Itís a string op tool.
[Lady_Aleena]: So I guess I'll go argue with File::Find and grep.
[Your Mother]: I would probably use Path::Tiny instead for it's slurp and such.
[Your Mother]: s/it's/its/
