who knew, video games and break dancing are college skills
I wonder if one day we will get a poster asking where to start on making a project that flashes an LED on pin 13 every second ?
Quotewho knew, video games and break dancing are college skillsWhat's wrong with these kids: don't they drink beer anymore?
the lecturer told us a tale of this student who used many many NOP's for a delay loop.
[rant]I know forums are magnets for school / college / uni project help... that's the nature of the beast.But I can't help but think that right now, there are too many threads started by people who literally don't know where to start.I can kind of understand that with a school project: with so little knowledge it's easy to underestimate the skill level. I'm spending quite a bit of time helping one such poster right now, and am doing so (reasonably) gladly. [/rant]
I wonder how I did it?
Did you win some kind of competition for token cynic?

Yeah but you're probably competent on your own.
I think it's a good resource to have forums for help but I wonder how many students take the time to work out the answer themselves these days?

Back in the day we couldn't write an email or go to the internet for help or canned answers - no texting, no video chat, and many articles that were useful were just ripped out of the periodical so they didn't exist either. I'd either go to the library or sit at my desk with the related text books and come up with the answer myself, or working with a classmate. Ah the good old days.I think it's a good resource to have forums for help but I wonder how many students take the time to work out the answer themselves these days?
You know, this reminds me of the old "student using calculator debate". It's gonna make them morons yelled one campIt'll increase the time they spend learning new things, yelled the other.Seems like the old "my religion is better than yours" argument, only this time no religious wars.
You seem to have a yearning for the past, but the volume of information has changed since them.
