surely, certain programming languages are an even more authentic expression of the human spirit

Which do you have in mind?

Tom April 19, 2007 at 12:42 am

half the scope for expression lies in choosing

Other than a tiny bit of PHP, I haven’t really coded anything since my cousin gave me a copy of Turbo Pascal.

On a related note, I miss TextMate, but can’t justify spending 40 Euros on a program that I only use a tiny fraction of the features available in.

Tom April 19, 2007 at 12:51 am

how many of the features in Word do you use? of course, there aren’t all that many people who actually buy it

Milan April 19, 2007 at 12:55 am

I am in the minority of students with a real copy of Office. The UBC bookstore added it to my iBook order for about $50.

As for the number of features I use, the right answer is probably “as few as possible.” I explicitly avoided including tables and graphs in my thesis, because formatting them in Word is such a pain.

Has your printer problem been sorted now?
Might not be online again til Monday. Good luck.

There are thousands of printers in Oxford. Surely you can find another somewhere.

Good luck! Would you mind if I steal this graph? It fits my life right now.
