    Cool. I never understood program writing. I just know that I have programs and they work for me.
    My father used to make educational software or programs or something for IBM. He got six patents. Now he's been a project manager for a while and says that he doesn't know much of anything about computers because apparently the technology has changed so much in the last 5-8 years or so.

    I chose my career because I thought "Cool! It'll be like playing and making money at the same time!" Then the big cold wet fish slapped my face. It's not about writing code, it's really about meetings and documentation and test plans and training your replacement. The "play time" that I love so much is actually only about 2%. Barg! Sorry I went far afield there. Cool on the patents! Yeah, there's been a big shift over the past few years and it's a challenge to keep up, but it's what I love to do.

    O

    Yeah, even when my dad was designing software, most of his job consisted of long conference calls and international business meetings. He was out of the state/country about five days a week just pitching and meeting and all that other boring stuff you mentioned.

    And even I, with my mighty technical wizardry, can do only 1 at a time as well. Imagine the chaos of 2!

    Ahh, a life of crime. Oh wait, I mean Software Development! Anyway, I think your dad is *way* above my pay grade, especially with the out of country stuff. Closest I get to that is conference calls with India. Yes, I mean the whole country! I'm just a code monkey. Well, I want to be, anyway.

    Yeah, my dad makes a lot of money, but he is also TERRIBLE with financing. We never had money for big cool vacations and we had to keep refinancing our house and eventually had to declare bankruptcy. Now he's living on his own in an apartment that is way too extravagant for one guy living alone and is eating away at our college funds to help pay for everything, and if anyone asks him for financial help he says he gives all his money to my mother. Yeah, the less than 30% of his pay each month minus a mortgage payment, car insurance, power, water, and groceries really leaves her rich. Please.

    Sorry, I think I've had this rant before, but my dad's financial issues and how full of crap he is about them drive me insane.

    Back to the puzzle, -Oh, never mind, I got it!

    Yep, that's it.

    Don't want to bag on you dad, but geeze! He needs a clue. Sorry for that.

    Anyway, this puzzle made me kinda sad thinking of Glenn Quinn and then... well, just go read my last post in the Dollhouse OT thread.

    Stop trying to make everyone sad.
    And no need to apologize, he does need a clue.

    And now I have to find out how to juggle two hangman puzzles.

    Yeah, that was what I was doing, the juggling. And you saw how many letter I was missing. But I think you're up for the challenge. I'm much better at guessing letters than filling them in. Plus you got that handy hangman guy.

    These 2 statements conjure up an unusual image in my head. Like 2 circus jugglers throwing a gallows, random body parts and letters to each other.

    I think juggling a gallows could be quite dangerous. At least it's not a guillotine though.

    A relatively easy one, but it is my first Angel one, so...
