I actually started as an EE major, went CS and ended up DP (doctor of
partyology). I Blutowski'd (for you young wippersnappers, Blutowski was the

in my pocket I got spoiled and did stupid things, like spend it on things that
needed gasoline (and more money). With the mounting bills and _extreme_ bordom
