Feeling ashamed about my computing skills

I'm needing to work on a programming project in C, and I'm feeling really stupid about my programming prowess.... however much I love the Lone Gunmen, I must admit that my Kung Foo is not the best. Sadly, I am a computer science major. I was kinda into web design and such as a hobby in high school, and that was as techie as I got. So systems programming and Perl and things are confounding me, and I always feel ashamed to ask the macho geeky boys for help.

I feel so much more at home in my Women's Studies classes, where I actually manage to appear smart. I wish I had the guts to give up my CS major, even with just one semester to go... oh well. Back to work.

If you ever need help...

Adrian's pretty kick ass when it comes to web based stuff (and shown by this very site!) and knows his stuff about everything else. I know C and C++ pretty good too, so if you ever need anything...

Thanks :-) I may take you up

Thanks :-) I may take you up on that if I get stuck on something... right now it's just that everything takes so long to write and debug... like, I've spent at least 8 hours since Monday on this project (when I had already worked on it a good bit over the weekend), and now it's (mostly) working... I move forward, but at a snail's pace. But I really appreciate the offer.
