Rant: An Open Plea

Can anyone out there do me a big favor? I don't care who you are, but for God's sake please grant me this simple wish. Can anyone redesign my blog template and make it resolution independent and add another sidebar to the left side. I do it myself, but I am so damn tired of looking at code that I can't even bare to look at one single line of code in any language. My whole career involves programming and software development and I'm about to shoot myself if I ever see another line of code. Is it just me who feels this way or are there some people who feel the same way I do.

I used to be fluent on every programming language. Other people like me will tell the same story, that learning the first programming is always the hardest. After that your on a roll and on your own. The first programming language I learned was C++ in high school. After I got a whiff of the power of Visual Basic 6.0, I immediately got down to read the book on it while still in high school. I played around with VB and designed so many applications that VB became like a second language to me. After VB I got on to MS SQL and MS Access. By the time I got into college, I started to learn Java and DHTML. I finished learning Java in just 6 hours. By now I had read four books on VB, three books on C++, and HTML in just two days. My reading span had stretched to 12 hours without a break of more than five minutes. By the end of my freshman year I had acquired almost all computer knowledge and a long list of applications and then finally I burnt out. Even to this day I can't read a book for more the 15 minutes. It's like my mind just wanders out after five minutes of reading. I don't have that stamina anymore. And worst of all, I can no longer stomach the design interface of anything on a computer anymore. I can now safely and confidently say that I am the grandfather of all computer knowledge.


  1. must have had to puch yourself to give me the code for the sidebar.....thank you man
    (i tried programming once, then i got impatient and quit)

  2. Actually, I wrote that code over a months period many months ago. I just copied and pasted it from my blog template and emailed it to you. See, I never had a special place for you in my heart all along. :-)
