Ridiculously overambitious projects

I see this all the time on forums.  Here's an example:

As you can see, my answer was less than complimentary.  But I see this stuff all the time.  People asking "how to create antivirus software" or "how to make 3d game."

I have no idea where they get these ideas. Is some insane professor assigning them super hard homework? Do they think that just because they wrote their first Hello World program and it compiled with no errors that they're ready for the big leagues?

More likely, they have no idea how complicated the topics they want to try are.  But that doesn't stop me from saying WTF! every time I see these stupid questions questions from stupid people.

  1. These people aren't real programmers, merely script kiddies who have advanced from javascript and php into c#!

    They get more satisfaction from compiling other peoples code than they do from writing their own..


Speak your mind.
