    Here is an imgur link with some examples for convenience into what I'm talking about: http://imgur.com/a/tg5dA When you google image search for "fantasy medieval architecture" or "medieval architecture". You get sort of the same type of house. Slate roofs, wattle and daub in wooden frames and square windows. The windows sometimes having rhombus sort of wooden fencing on them(I don't know what this is called, bonus points if you tell me what it is or if it even exists) After some googling I could only find some French and German architecture that have similar building types but nothing definitive. Is there an architectural style that these buildings fit or usual conform to? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Good afternoon Yahoo, I am having trouble thinking of how to make this work in visual basic. I need to somehow find a way to make a program output the average for multiple test scores using only one input box and the output should display in another textbox. Here is the assignment given to me by my professor: "Modify the program such that any number of test scores can be entered using a single textbox for the user to enter scores. Your final application should have only two textboxes, one for user input, and one to displaying the current average." Previously I had to create an program that calculated the average of two test scores with two input boxes. It was simple enough. I just can't rack my head around this assignment, please help me if you can. Thank you.

    Half-Life for me is one of those popular games that I can't seem to pick up. Everytime I see it in my steam library I feel a slight pang of guilt for not already having played this King of Kings of Games. The only thing that's always sent me the other way is the graphics. It's not that I cannot stand the graphics, but it just seems ugly to me. A superficial reason for sure, but that and the constant release of awesome new games kept me away. A friend told me about the Black Mesa Source mod that makes Half-Life look WAY better! And sound better to boot! It got me all tingly inside and now I want to jump at this opportunity to play Half-Life! ...The problem is, I have a feeling that it might in some way take away from the experience of Half-Life. Something in me tells me I should experience it the way everyone else who places this game on a high, shiny pedestal has. Something tells me that if I played the polished version of this game that it might take away from the experience. I haven't played the game so I obviously can't tell for sure, but my question is; Is part of the reason that Half-Life is so popular the graphics? And would it take away from the experience to play this shinier version? TL:DR Would having improved graphics ruin my experience of Half-Life?

I feel the need to prove every statement I make and make sure it is absolute! Why is this? Is it because I am insecure in my knowledge of the subject? Is it because I'm compulsive and a perfectionist? Is it because I feel so much pressure to do it right and get the best grade possible? Can someone tell me how I can overcome this? I hear college students should be able to produces pages of essays and research papers in a matter of hours! So why can't I? And how can I start to?
