For those of you who know me personally, I've been in legal probation of sorts and probably still am. However God gave me a sign today that made me realize he IS the one who makes it all good for those who trust in him!

I confess that I was tempted to steal softwares because I gave away my developer packages to a friend of mine. At the time it was a Christmas spirit moment and I couldn't resist. Besides I'm on welfare and needed the money so I just gave it away and returned the new setup to Best Buy not knowing it I would lose my Borland Turbo Assembler that costs $101 USD plus shipping and fees. I would also not realize in full that I would have lost a programming package costing another $134.40 or so. In addition I would lose a typist training program costing $49 or so along with PhotoShop CS2 from a good from from Adobe costing maybe $100+. So roughly $350 USD in additional softwares with my return of the laptop that I didn't like because it was too much "money". Besides I don't like the color haha It's not the best laptop at $300 USD however for the value I believe it's a good buy although the USB port did give out. However the softwares also contained Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium which is God's favourite operating system. haha Without the internet it is a to-die-for-developer-package. However I just couldn't do it when I had something that barely works. I couldn't while on welfare spend it on another computer when the only thing wrong was a failing DVD drive. I am able to get it to work now because I write at the lowest speed and verify it after writing.

Anyways, God shows that through a miracle and others also being a giver I'm able to receive my programming again against all odds.

I love it that you are able to do the same thing that assembly does! The only difference is you need to know every single instructions to max out the speed. I have not been able to do that before. However in one instance it is possible so far and I am unable to reveal that instance without permission from Borland!
