Only by mistake, as I believe anonymity is cumulative and I am scared silly of simply dis-appearing into the great void of white noise.

...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...

    My very first post ever was anonymous. It garnered more XP than any other post I've ever made, but am I bitter?

    Yes, I am, a bit. :)

    This was it, and why anyone upvoted that abomination is beyond me :S

[Corion]: ambrus: Well, for mathematical notation, I find blackboard much more convenient than a computer. But when inserting text or moving text around, the computer wins obviously
[ambrus]: But either of these is a big problem in practice, so I'd need to spend like thirty years of my life to solve (a) and five more years to solve (b)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, CURRENTLY the blackboard is more convenient
[ambrus]: and it's not like I want to ban blackboards anyway
[ambrus]: you already have blackboards and a canvas for projector or overhead transparencies (or positive film slide projector, not used for maths) canvas in the same lecture halls today, and switch in a few minutes between presentations,
[ambrus]: they're only difficult to use together.
[ambrus]: overhead transparencies are a nice convenience by the way that mix the two slides, because you can write them in advance and edit them during the presentation easily. but they're not very much in fasion these days.
[ambrus]: you can even print them.
[Discipulus]: ambrus i'm trying out MremoteNG which wrap putty and rdp and many other things..
[Corion]: ambrus: Yes, ideally you would have the ease of overhead projection transparencies and pens drawing on them, combined with the computer generated slide text...
