One thing that you left out was that you probably did most
if not all of the homework problems. I think with programming
I can read the material, but until I can actually
play around w/ it, it doesn't stick in memory.

The main problem I have w/ mastering perl is that I will
occasionally go a month or two where I do nothing but
perl, and then will go a month or two where I don't do
any scripting (I am a *NIX SA). I find that after that
month away, I have forgotten the stupid little things, like
the syntax of a for loop. Geez, it's embarassing having
to look things like that up.
As for math, it made no sense, until I learned it thru
geophysics... go figger.
