A few years ago, while in college, a friend and I were working on a engine as a side project to build experience. 25% of the goals completed and he begins making excuses to not work anymore. I continues working on it and when the project was "competed", I showed it to the head of the department at the college where I was offered a job as a professor and sold the engine for 20k to the department of engineering.
The dude came back claiming recognition and compensation for his effort I told him sure.
When we met, I showed him legal paper stating the engine was patented under my name and I was the only owner.
In reality, I wanted to meet with him to breath his ass then show him the paper but I felt that would be too evil.
I was pretty mad that he came back after leaving but I can't hold good for nothing people.
So. It is that time again. The last week of the semester for college students. Paper due for all, presentations for everyone and their moms and final in a week for which no one had the time to study and I'm here wishing death so I can code in piece in the afterlife.4
So. I began college this year. I will be majoring in Computer Science. There first thing as a new student I did was signed up for the Computer Science Club and excited for the new adventure I asked, "What are we going to do?
President: "Nothing. We don't have any programmers or budget. But you can do whatever you want."
I don't know what I felt: maybe lost? a little dead inside?
What a disappointment.6
