in thread Rita

Our attempt to flee to safer grounds this morning resulted in a wasted half tank of gas that only got us 1 mile down the Interstate. A normal 4 hour drive to Dallas was reported as taking some evacuees +24 hours. With very little gasoline in the city we realized that we'd soon be destitute and still in the Hurricane's path if we continued on our exodus so we decided to stay behind and try our luck at home.
$_->wish('luck') foreach @evacuee;

    That's what I was thinking earlier today, all those people stuck on the highway are going to be "Sitting Ducks" for Rita. I wish all of you good luck. Being a spiritual man, I will pray for your safety.

[ambrus]: erix: that one actually sucks. these days people should get rid of the old notion that TeX is the only thing you can use for decent mathematics writing, because MS Office and LibreOffice have reached the
[ambrus]: level where people can more easily write as good mathematical papers in them as the people who write bad LaTeX papers usually write.
[ambrus]: Yes, for like the first twenty of its years, TeX was basically the only system that allowed you to write decent maths papers, and C++ and PHP were programming languages that sucked, etc. But times change and people have to accept that.

[Discipulus]: php does not suck anymore?
[ambrus]: Discipulus: I'm not sure, but it certainly doesn't suck as much as it's used to. it's like C++, it sucks because people still recursively learn from twenty year old PHP examples,
[ambrus]: and they try to use the obsolete features that PHP has to support only for compatibility with old scripts. C++ and PHP both have the problem that people can't forget the past, because when they google "PHP" plus the problme they want to solve, they find b
[ambrus]: ad code examples.
[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
