    got burned out in college.
    was in a dual degree program, that would have taken 6 years to complete, and i was taking the max amount of class per semester I could take, and I had a full time 40 hour job with the network engineering program, and I was on the karate team,

    family problems came up right after the y2k disaster went down. so I said screw it and skipped town for a few years. left my cell phone on the front step.

    The fellow I work for is worth about 700 million. He went all the way to eigth grade though. You can be uneducated yet very smart.

    Is it even legal to stop going to school in 7th grade?

    I started college right out of high school, went for a couple of years but couldn't figure out what I wanted to do, so I quit. I wish I hadn't. A few years later I took a drafting course at the local trade school but once I actually got on the job I hated it. So that was a waste of money. Now I'd like to go back to school but I don't really want a bunch of student loans.

    I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind, got my paper...and I was free.
    Dangit, I almost only post in Foo, so my post count is abysmal.

    Bachelor of the Arts. Took 8 years to do it, too. I kinda had too good of a time in college. Two years of study, four years of being totally wasted, two more years of study and out with just about the lowest passable GPA you can have.

    Yep. I was on the 5-year plan for my BA. Too much drinking and goofing off. Did just well enough to graduate. Joined the military, grew up and did very well in my Masters program. I can't imagine trying to find work in this economy without a degree.

    5 years to a professional degree in Architecture. 5 years into the major with the highest unemployment of all college majors.

    It's not so bad. I mean, the job will absolutely suck, but it's an income. (barely)

    not being rude. just asking.
    short version.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Year_2000_problem

    old network was co-axial in some places and cat 3 in some places and cat 5 in some places, we tried to changed the entire school to cat 5 in two months

    Our university had recently acquired 22,000 some odd new computers. We wanted them to boot from the network, and they were running win2k. being brand new computers, we had to re-install windows from a disc with the proper upgrades and to take care of the Y2k issues. once we booted up about 3/4 of them fried the power supply. We had the month of December while school was out to swap them all and beat the date change. I still have scars on my knuckles from being in a rush swapping all of those power supplies.

    Far enough.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    BS IT Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology with an emphasis in CAD and Electronics. I design wireless products for a living. Have designed stuff from Ku band satcomm transmitter/receivers (dish mounted) to trailer mounted base stations to cell phones to USB modems.

    College took almost 10 years as I worked full time while also attending classes. Took time off for a couple of semesters. Got married and had a kid along in there somewhere. He is going to college now.

    Master's degrees in chemistry and business and a legal degree. I paid for all of them myself by working my way through school.
