I'm really a C++ programmer, but I wanted to learn Perl because it's so damn good at data manipulation and the I/O is fairly easy, compared to say, Java. Plus, being a *NIX user, it's my duty to know at least a little bit of Perl. I hope someday that I'll be as good in Perl as I am in C++.

[Corion]: That's why I like HTML - it makes it relatively easy to resize stuff. Resizing with Powerpoint is much harder, or at least, I remember it being that way
[ambrus]: (a) good sans serif fonts optimized for slides in a projector with coverage of the symbols needed for mathematical formulas in a sans serif font matching the text font well, and
[ambrus]: (b) a good presentation system that lets the presenter quickly interactively edit the slides live during a presentation, to combine the advantages of blackboard and overhead slide styles in modern tech
[Corion]: Heh - in university, I cheated on (a) by doing blackboard presentations using chalk. But those were 2 hour presentations, not quick/essential/ reduced presentations where you want to show something quick
