1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Hey, I briefly consider Reed during my high school days. They had a pretty good biology program and did a nice job in the recruitment department.

    Never went to college, waste of time and money IMO. Dropped out of high school, went to work for Microsoft, then Wall Street.. etc.. Guess for many professions it's necessary, but for most in my view it's of limited value.

    Who, me? =P

    Btw, rather excellent choice on the profile pic. Believe Rashida Jones studied philosophy at good ol' Harvard, too.

    Yes well, I think they teach that well before high school, and I have worked alongside plenty of brilliant PhD earners who can't do any better :)

    Aside from what you mentioned, I found that, for myself, the math and programming side of things taught me how to break down problems logically, and approach them from multiple angles to find the best solution. Even in my current role, where I deal with neither of these topics, I find that this type of logical thinking allows me to solve fairly rudimentary, day to day issues much easier, and quicker, than my peers (and no, it is not an attempt to brag or say I am smarter than them). While I'm sure you can argue genetics vs training, I have no doubt that, well, both help :D

    I am still undecided as to what I want to do after my m.a. I might go for a PHD in the US, or do a certificate in finance. Law might also be an option.

    If I were to do undergrad in the US, it'd be New Saint Andrew's College all the way.

    Concordia University is an interesting place. A ton of great bands and artists have come out of there recently.

    I'm probably going to study Dental Surgery at Sahlgrenska Academy/University of Gothenburg this spring, living in Gävle as of now though.
