still not done..

ugggh.. this class is gonna be the death of me, it seems. ok, maybe that’s a bit overdramatic, but it sure feels that way. apparently we *are* having a test after all.. it’s a take-home, and we have a week to do it, but still. it actually doesn’t seem as bad as the HW problems, which come out of the book (diaz made up the test problems), so that’s good. so that’s the plan for the weekend: get as much of the test knocked out as possible.
in other news, i have a pretty decent job lead: dr. papa fwded me an e-mail he received from this dude who works for oracle. apparently he’s looking for a cybercorps/CIS student to fill an enterprise security position. the qualifications are pretty ridiculous (e.g., they “prefer” someone with a Ph.D. in CS and a business degree), but i think i have a fairly good shot at it, with my research credentials and whatnot. i sent the guy an e-mail today, so i guess we’ll see.
i’ll leave you with something i saw on the onion the other day that had me rolling, on the astrology page:

Scorpio: (Oct. 24—Nov. 21)
Buddha says that, while he may show you the way, only you can truly save yourself, proving once and for all that he’s a lazy, fat bastard.
