Locking yourself out is so annoying. And who knew lock picking could be so difficult?

Try using a butter knife, it's my favourite tool to jimmy open a Yale lock.

No good. I already tried slipping a piece of plastic in the frame to jimmy the lock open, and it doesn't work.

Unfortunately, neither does this picking thing. Damn those sites that make it look easy.

Problem solved. I cut a hole in the door, reached through, and unlocked it from the other side.

Now there's the problem of the large hole, but a little glue, a little paint, a little spackling, and you'll never know.

Sure, that's all wine and fell, until you find yourself in the same predicament again. Then you have a reinforced door to get through.

Nah, the piece I cut out is only held in place with glue. All I've got to do is knock it out with a hammer. I'm also replacing the lock ASAP.

How can one take an exam for computer programming, anyway? By that time, don't you either know it or not know it?

It's an exam on algorithm design and analysis, which is pretty much the theory behind programming rather than programming proper. I didn't have to write a single line of code for this class. About half of the computer science courses I took were like this, actually -- it is, after all, computer science, not just computer programming.

That said, I wish I didn't have to write exams in the first place, because they generally are an ineffective way to measure how well a person learns. But that goes for all courses.

I'm trying to get my lit review done and out to my committee members. Then it's on to the next paper and revising the first one I sent to them. I'm sick of writing.
