Steve was trying to explain why knowing about compilers matters, and added this helpful comment about working while going to school:

Don't do that, by the way. It's really hard to finish when you're working full-time. Get your degree, then go to work. All the more so if you're a Ph.D. candidate within any reach of finishing. You don't want to be just another ABD for the rest of your life. Even if you're not sad, per se, we'll be sad for you.

Yes, we will be sad for you.
