My little brother is currently slogging bravely through one of the more challenging introductory programming courses. Ain't getting much sleep, it looks like. Hey, I remember that!

the items when i post the ads on the internet. if so, let me know when's
a good time for you and i'll come by to pick it up. thanks!

Whew. For a moment there when you said you were going to sell some thing, I thought you were going to try to sell my digital camera.
In any case, you can stop by anytime to pick up the camera. Just give a call beforehand to make sure either my roommate or I am in the room. Even if we're not, I can teach you this neat little trick with a clotheshanger that will enable you to get the camera anyway . . . but when I'm teaching you, I might as well give you the camera right then and there.
P.S. When I woke up to my alarm today, I was worried because apparently I had forgotten to free the alarm. But then that was okay, because I never allocated myself in the first place. Then again, until I allocated myself, I couldn't get out of bed.
My drowsy brain does weird things.
ah... now there's a meaty class...
they still teach memory allocation in school? i would expect that classes these days would just say, "... and then you pray that garbage collection kicks in ..." ;)
