Any teachers here?

I think I mentioned before that I'm a Comp. Science student. My wife is a math professor and she's always having me grade these quizes and tests. What a pain in the butt. I was just wondering if anyone in this forum has to put up with mass loads of paperwork or grading?

At my last job, I did the plan reading and layout for my boss, and ran better than half the crew for about two months. It was interesting, not a whole lot of paperwork, but a lot of trying to figure out where stuff went in odd shape spaces in an old aircraft carrier.
Before that, though, I did do a lot of weld inspections, and the computer system that I had to enter everything into was horrible. You couldn't correct errors, you had to back out completely and start over to correct anything.

Do you know what type of system it was? Possibly AS400? Or are we talking years ago because I love working on Unix systems. BTW Jared, How are your joints holding up??

It was their own system, most of it was a real pain to navigate, and most was written back when DOS 2.0 was pretty much the only option for operating systems. Kinda funny, since the company I worked for owned Computer Sciences Corporation.

Man, I actually operated DOS 2.0 when I was a kid. Did any of yall know that before it was sold to Microsuck DOS stood for "Dirty Operating System"? Stolen from someone much smarter than us Comp. Scientists. Bill Gates is a great one to market. Oh, but only after he stole the gui from the programmers at ATT. Ok, I shut up now.
