Now i think i should do my masters in CS. I've been learning new languages and I did hav some cs subjects like Operating sys basics. The only problem is that since i lost interest in electronics, i don't have like a good result. So what would slashdotters do in this scenario?"

Turns out the retail site had a number of suspicious links pointing at it that could be traced back to a link network intended to manipulate Google’s ranking algorithms.
Now, has lost rankings for another type of link that Google finds to be manipulation of their algorithms. And in the midst of all of this, a company with substantial publicity lately for running a paid link network announces they are getting out of the link business entirely."
