UPDATE 2/10/08 - Sorry again; though the code beasts lie slain, I'm still studying for oral exams for my major and am driving around doing interviews. I'm excited to continue once these tasks are finished.

I awoke this past Saturday surrounded by bloodied code beasts, myself a hollowed-out husk of a man, a gore-spattered sword still clutched in my aching hands. It was all I could do to stagger back to the comicking chair and press on.

I also say: I'm thankful, because I'm done with the hardest part of getting my degree now.
