Quark Course

I'm taking a course in Quark as part of my magazine certificate program. Tonight is the first class. As in right now. How's it going? Well, I'm writing a blog entry. What does that tell you?

Why do computer classes always cater to the lowest common denominator? It's like having a class on writing, where the first class is an overview of the alphabet. Being that we're living in a computer age, where if you don't know how to use a computer you're pretty much out of luck, isn't it reasonable to assume some prior knowledge?

The teacher is now explaining something that I figured out half an hour ago just by clicking around. I may be a smart cookie, but I'm no computer genius. The trouble is, if I drop this course I won't be able to say on my résumé that I took a course in Quark. Also, I wouldn't be able to replace the course with another because I've taken everything that's offered this term. GAH!

well, any class that allows me to write a blog entry without lagging behind is something that must not be dropped in my book...heh...;p

can you say, easy credits? plus, I'm sure it will get better eventually so I'd say keep at it.

Ohh don't you just hate that. We did something similar a while ago. We were being taught how to use a new program, well do'h I'd already clicked on everything that was clickable and I knew 99% of what they were telling us.. are other people really that behind?
