GradSchoolFilter: How bad did I screw up, and can it be fixed?

I'm trying to get a M.S. in Computer Science, I already have a B.S. in Computer Science. Started last year as a full time student, took a semester off, and now trying to take classes while holding a full time job. My horrible time management skills combined with not knowing how crazy my job gets in August has caused me to do poorly in class. So poorly, that I may be "ineligible to continue graduate study". I'm very de-motivated by the whole situation and wondering what my options are, so I have a couple of questions [more inside]

Where did I leave that incendiary, again?

I'm pretty sure I remember reading an online interview with Alan Keyes in which he said something like "Computer Science has spent the last fifty years stewing in its own recycled bullshit." However, I'm having trouble finding a cite. Anyone got one? I'd like to quote it in a talk, but I want to make sure I've got it right.

How can I find out if someone's already solved this (fairly specific) programming problem?

I have many short strings of varying lengths — between a dozen and a few hundred, most likely — and one long string. I need to write code that will find a way to assemble a copy of the long string using as few of the short strings as possible. If it's not possible to assemble a complete copy of the long string, it should assemble a copy with as few and as small gaps as possible. [more inside]
