Man do you sound like my brother... and niether of us can figure how the other functions to this day.

While your in there solving constraint-satisfaction problems, some of us are left to make these systems work for people that can't spell scheduling. Your math skills enhance your relationship to the machine in the way that works best for you.

Granted calling Calculus useless in a monestary full of math monks is like spreading your cheeks for the Bulls in Pompolona and it begs a response, however to imply that there is only mathmatical resolution to the problems surrounding application development is stretching things as well.

[ambrus]: 1nickg: obviously the gamers don't know. but anyway, I need the whole room backlit, because watching a monitor in a dark room (like many people do) is tiring for my eyes, even more so than doing it in a lit room.
[1nickt]: ambrus I agree. I suspect one's eyes are always trying to adjust across the boundary between very bright and very dark ... like a camera's autofocus struggling to choose the target.
