That and my $600 computer managed to blow a $15 CPU fan - I caught it in time, but the fan in question is remarkably hard to find a replacement for, and what with the car issue I don't want to do any unnecessary driving to find a new one.
That and my current CSE 421 project requires the old project which I didn't finish to be finished, so now I have to finish the old one for zero credit, which is just plain dumb. However, there is no way to force a computer to run code that doesn't exist, and just kind of "skip over it". In math you can do that - we "assume this is true, and use it to show that." If computers could do the same, I'd save a lot of time... but my odds of getting a job out of school would be pretty low :).
