Getting There, But It's Not Looking Good

CSCI E-207 Week 5 Update

Have I ever mentioned how challenging CSCI E-207/121 is? It's definitely not for your normal-minded human. Ha, I thought it would be "cool" to actually learn about the theory of computers. Heck! Why wouldn't it be cool? Unfortunately, theory and theoreticians: "are who we thought they were."

Basically, a prerequisite for this class is a certification in genius. And an admiration for "this guy."

If he seems like someone that might stomp on your dreams, then maybe a theoretical class ain't for you. Jokes aside, this material isn't for the weak at heart. If you can't figure everything out on your own then *honestly* you're going to have a lot of trouble. Theory has always been one of those things that those that get it, get it, and those that don't, don't. No one is going to hold your hand and help you understand.

P.S. I'm just bitter that I'm not a genius. =) Oh and I dunno, my neural-pathway-thinga-ma-bobs are leading to dead ends. Grr...

    I'm taking a theory class too at the moment. It's humbling to say the least, but mostly I think the problem is that theory wonks speak a completely different language from us normal dinks.
