I'm a CIS student (hopefully still) at Saint Leo in FL. If I do start an online app company after I'm done, then obviously math. However, I'm not here because of that. I'm here because I feel I have a better understanding of math now and have relaxed a bit since I essentially have a professor with me wherever I go, aka the internet and a pc. I feel I have something to add, too.

There are 10 people in the world - people who understand hex and F the rest.
