    Was just on chat the now speakin to K_girl and when she found out I did Comp Sci she said "why do so many comp sci do a MA?"

    So here's a wee poll for anyone who's doing or done a Comp Sci or similar course(could be interesting)... and any reasons as to why hey, feel free! :)

    I do MSc in computing, I'm writing my thesis at the moment. I did it because I'm a geek and I like playing about with geeky stuff, so I thought I may as well do it for a living :)

    I have my B.S. in Telecommunications Management (Data side, dealing with systems)

    As for why I think I do MA and also love computers?? I love my computer to much that I get pale white and never see daylight. So I got off my lazy rump to get some exercise and self defense. Of course, I will probably only need the self defense if my computer suddenly grows a body and tries to attack me.

    I have a Comp Sci degree, but I don't think it has any relation to why I do MA.

    Hmm didn't really mention myself in this did I?

    BSc in Computer Science for,but if somehow at uni if I get real good results at end of third year, they might let me do a MEng in Software Engineering! ;) As for why... hmm... the club I'm in had a display at the sports fair day during my fresher's week, so I had a look round and decided to join! I guess why I do it... It helps me learn how to better co-ordinate myself (as I have a little medical condition that make my body not quite do as my brain tells it!) and it's enjoyable, all the folks there are a good laugh and good folks and I guess it keeps me fit a bit (and is forcing me to get fitter! Only a good thing methinks :D )

    I used to work in IT. At a seminar, once, there were 4 of us sitting at a table at lunch. None of the 4 of us had ever met before. While talking at lunch, it came out that all 4 of us worked in IT.

    I've met a lot of other computer geeks who train in MA.

    Wow! Seems like I am in the minority thus far! Although I have a hunch the only people who will read/vote on this poll will be people doing computer science courses (with me being an exception)! Although come to think of it, I briefly (for about two weeks) studied A-Level computer science at college.. but two weeks surely doesn't count?!?
