I think I will start on C++ after the January resits (I should study for them beforehand). When they are out of the way, I think I will be able to get into it seriously. I may pick up some books before then (they will be a relief from Dos Capital) but I can't really get enough time to do much until January (if I want to correct my AS results anyway).
I really should complain!!!! My college owe me BIG for not giving me a computing tutor for 5 months during term so I figure I should be able to swindle some free lessons from them (either that or I want my coursework done for me).
Our college told us that they were considering applying for "mitigating circumstances" (not sure if this actually happened) but we have been advised to include a note about this on any job / uni applications either way. Normally you have to pay for resits but the college are going to be paying for them instead. They are also putting on revision classes for us so I figure I will resit the exam either way (my coursework was an "A" so I don't fancy repeating that unless I have to) and if my result is very bad, I will disagrigate and put on my Uni app that "I have taken some computing modules and am working towards an A-level in the subject". This will keep them satisfied and ensure that they dont see any major ****-up's on my app.
PS - My board is OCR.
Not really but Im used to the educational system screwing me!
*Tries hard not to go into rant about a wasted year doing Chemistry for which I never sat the exam (at GCSE)*
Getting back to the original topic, does anyone know how long a full install of Slackware Linux 9.0 should take? It's been going for ages, and it has no progress monitor, and I want to go to bed!!
I have no idea sorry, i dont have the whole going to bed thing to worry about for a while yet (insomnia blows!). Try to avoid falling asleep at your computer, this does result in serious neckache in the morning.
Im thinking put it in a well ventilated area. Outside on a stone floor would be good but this is not recommended if you are looking to still own it in the morning (thieves are everywhere).
Try to avoid burning the house down though (bad for your relationship with parents / guardians etc....).
The best OS in the world. It is as easy as windows, but with a linux core. (ps I didnt buy it)
i heard lindows wasnt that great
nah, its great for the non-nerds among us, that dont enjoy programming and hacking using telnet and stuff
I havn't read all of the posts- mainly because the first few made no sense whatsoever to me so I appologise if this question has been answered...but for the sake of me knowing so that seeing this thread doesn't make me curious all the time- what is this 'Linux' programme thingymagiggy?
