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!"


      "'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 ;-)
