    Could you please explain why? I'm sorta in the same situation now. I like to use computers and know quite some things, but is programming (HBO Informatica) very hard?

    You just end up happily married years later :p Women like successful men, and computer nerds tend to be a success. Bill Gates is a prime example.

    What did you expect they would talk about in a software engineering class anyway? :rolleyes:

    That is a big problem now is it?

    nm+'s right about law-school, you'd be sick of hearing articles of this and that and penal this and that, then you'd be whinning all over again about how could such "normal" people exist. Then again, maybe they are just dedicated to their majors. But hey, maybe theres a chick or two to score at law school, huh? Maybe someday they'd grow up to be an ideal milf lawyer or something... right.

    Bad example. Bill Gates hasn't ever written one line of code for one of his company's products.

    He's a businessman, not a programmer.

    No they are SMART nerds and the good ones are brilliant nerds.
    I think the really good ones are like artists, I admire there ability.

    I have to disagree. Bill Gates "is" a programmer. He's sold programs before, even as a young child. The reason he became so successful was partly down to the fact he knew what he was doing due to his background.
