Its art that you use as a filler when testing technology or when you are drawing something on a board to explain to someone. Its basically what programmers call their pathetic attempts at art like this

Considering you are going to college to learn, what do you think the answer is?

When you say cmd prompt thing, I think DOS. Is that where you watched it? If so, the power of the Dark Place beckons you already...

Motion, could you write an article for your school newspaper? You might find a company that is more receptive to your request to talk with one of their developers if you were conducting an interview for a "Career Corner", or some such thing. Maybe. A published article pads your resume, too.

Also, consider taking an art class. (I presume that because you say you can't draw a stick figure, you've shied away from art.) You may not learn how to draw, and as Gshonk pointed out, you may not need that skill, but an increased awareness of values, proportions, color, balance, etc., and the thought artists put into design may help you when you work with them as a producer or even a programmer.

I have no idea what it is called but its the thing that says "Run" in the start menu .. so i guess it is dos.

I am taking my high school classes online so i am able to work at the same time and when i moved to Vancouver all schools were on strike so it was the only option i had at the time and i decided to stick with it so as for the news paper thing i will not be able to do that but i like the idea. As far as art goes there is a type of art appreciation course that i can take but right now i am talking to the principal of the school and he is considering letting me enroll in the art class to learn from the students and basically just sit and watch them so i can understand their concepts and how they come up with their ideas. Do you think that it will help me at all if i take the principals offer on this?

After rereading my post, I realize there are many kinds of art classes. Perhaps I should have said, "I think you might find a class that teaches you some fundamentals of design beneficial to you in the future, though not crucial." If that doesn't make any sense, forgive me -- I've been up for two days plowing snow.

But you've got me curious... How does an online art class work, and how do you sit in on it and watch?

P.S. Yes, typing "cmd" or "command" in the Run dialog box will launch DOS, though there is a subtle but important distinction between the two programs.
