11:54 am - on friday around lunchtime...
So I heard from the guy from practice last night. Xrays show his leg is not broken, but they didn't know if he had ligament or tendon damage yet. He siad it was still kinda painful so they had given him some morphine... mmmm... Morphine... cure for pain... anyway, his doctor had wanted him to get his knee scoped for a while and he neglected to do it, so now it looks like he'll have to do it. At least that's what the doctors were telling him. He was going to know more after he gets an MRI like today or next week.

haven't done a friday five in a while.

1. Are you going to school this year?

Yes, wrestling school. As I mention pretty frequently here.

2. If yes, where are you going (high school, college, etc.)? If no, when did you graduate?

I'm going to the IWC Coalition of Competition. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1998 and Admiral King High School in 1992. KING HIGH!

3. What are/were your favorite school subjects?

In high school, probably art and computer science. In college, fiction workshop and history of rock'n'roll. In wrestling class, there's only really one class.

4. What are/were your least favorite school subjects?

high school: chemistry (teacher didn't like me cuz I beat up his son the year before)
college: calculus (had to drop it because it was too early in the morning)
wrestling:only one class, and I love it...

5. Have you ever had a favorite teacher? Why was he/she a favorite?

I've had several favorite teachers. All for different reasons. Mrs. Matelski, in kindergarden, because she recognized me as about 50 times smarther than all the other students, and pretty much let me do whatever I wanted. Mrs. Marken in High School English, because she was just a very good teacher. Sharon Dilworth, Hilary Masters, David Shumway, Tony Early, Dennis Johnson and Gerry Costanza in college, all for different reasons, but mostly because I just really enjoyed their classes. And finally, in junior hight, Mr. Billy Lee Williams, aka Johnny Skidrow, furthermore known as Buddy Love, because he was the daddy of the macks.

Just as an aside: ColdFusion sucks... even more than flash does... And by ColdFusion, I mean the webserver, not the infinite energy source, because that's cool.

Who's going to Silky's tonight? It should be exciting. Last week there was an unprecedented 2nd tray of wings! Who knows what might happen this week.

Have you ever had a favorite teacher?

I'm surprised you didn't include your 4th grade teacher from Irving...of course I don't even remember his name, but maybe that was MY favorite teacher you had.

Oh yeah, and I'm glad your "casulty" will live.

yep... we were pretty sure of that before though...

Re: Have you ever had a favorite teacher?

Mr Green, I think... that might have been 5th grade... in fact, I think it was... Mrs. Kitzerroll was 4th grade... at least as far as I can remember... its pretty foggy

Re: Have you ever had a favorite teacher?

Ah yes, Mr. Green, and yes that was 5th grade; good teacher. I think 4th was Amie Kurant though; she was the one in her last year before retirement. I think that class sent her to a lock down facility though, if my memory serves me correct :-) Poor lady. I remember you and the counselor, Mr. Wyer getting evicted from her classroom.

Re: Have you ever had a favorite teacher?

Yeah, I think that may be right... who was kitzeroll then? 2nd grade? 3rd? 1st was Mr Engle. I vaguely remember the name Mr. Wyer... but no details. Why were we evicted?

Re: Have you ever had a favorite teacher?

He was observing the class. You were daydreaming. The teacher said that since you didn't feel it necessary to pay attention perhaps you should come up and teach the class how to do division problems. Big mistake on her part. You stood at the chalk board and said something like "I think the reason the other kids aren't getting this is because of the way you're explaining it. Now class..." Then you proceeded to do a problem on the board. Of course the class said "Oh NOW we get it!" I'm sure they didn't, but she didn't see the humor. Mr. Wyer did and cracked up. You were both asked to leave and I was called to the school. I found you and Mr. Wyer sitting in his office looking contrite.

Re: Have you ever had a favorite teacher?

Bah... I'm a wonderful teacher. I'm sure they understood every word I said. Yeah, I vaguely remember that. And really, serves her right. I always hated when people challenged me to stuff like that. Mr Engle used to try that crap all the time too. I also remember Mr. Engle with his brilliant "Ooh, the novels you're reading are too hard, you have to read Flat Stanley with the rest of the class" speech then kicking me out when I told him I did read it in like 3 minutes and was going to finish reading my book now.

*sigh* The world simply never appreciated my genius.

Re: Have you ever had a favorite teacher?

Well, I appreciated it; it just made for a lot of trips to the principal's office is all. Mr. Engle's class was the beginning. Hehee, you refused to color his worksheet because you were reading a Frank Baum novel. When I got to the office you were reading to the principal. I remember asking you why you didn't just color the picture and put the numbers in the little boxes. You said, if Mr Engle couldn't tell that there were 2 clowns and 3 balls on that paper, then you couldn't help him. I knew it was a losing battle...sigh. So I told the principal "Well, he's got a good point." Mr. Engle was difficult, he didn't understand that he could just give you some challenging work and you'd be cool. He should have talked to Mrs. Metelsky like I suggested.

ColdFusion is useful for some things because it's so stupidly simple to learn (if you know any html, you can pick up CF instantaneously).

But I got CF overdose when my office tasked me and the two new college hires to do flow charts of a huge bulletin board/scheduling/messaging web app written in ColdFusion (and find bugs along the way, since we were going over -- literally -- hundreds of pages of printouts by hand, and some of the errors were bloody obvious).

So... I have mixed feelings. Super-easy and somewhat useful for web apps, but I've seen way, way too much of it.

don't mind me... I tend to gripe about anything computer related that I happen to be dealing with at that moment. Really, the problem ended up not being ith ColdFusion at all, but actually with Windows just being broken... but whatever...

also, don't you owe me interview answers? :-)
From: zombiesrah Date: August 29th, 2003 - 11:36 am (Link)
Ah, fault of Windows. That makes more sense. There was one occasion in the same office where we wanted to rewrite a CF web app in ASP (so we could move the CF license to another machine), but there was a bug in a particular ASP function that we needed. Microsoft had promised to fix the problem... several years previously. Since they never had, CF continued to do the job just fine.

And yes, I owe both you and theadana interview questions (as well as lillokiangel and cuddlyd00m now), but for various reasons, the questions from you two have been stumping me. I've got answers half-written, and they'll be up... um... soonish. ;)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: August 29th, 2003 - 12:02 pm (Link)
no worries, I'm mostly just kidding. Really, I'm honored that you're thinking about it as hard as you are. Can't wait to see the answers. (Wow, I just went back and reminded myself what I had asked you... some of those were tough)

Well, you can blame Macromedia for not developing ColdFusion for a real OS.

It really annoys me when Dreamweaver tries to get me to use a server model that's not even supported on my platform. And their built-in PHP/MySql support kind of sucks.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: August 29th, 2003 - 12:59 pm (Link)
it wouldn't have mattered anyway. I'm actually doing all my work on a mac, but the server is on a PC because that's what MAYA put it on before I was even working on this and they did that because that is what the client is using. So I'd be stuck with it anyway....
