My questions for thought, pursuant to the forthcoming second part of "can u pls help me", are:
- 1. Why is the belief that something is too hard assiduous?
As kakarigeiko wrote (specifically of CS), part of "intellectual maturity" is understanding that a lot of problems we face in day-to-day research and practice are quotidian challenges, surmountable with a little effort.
A conversation with masaga and zengeneral over the weekend, about learned helplessness.
- 2. What happened to the appreciation for theoretical computer science?
This was from a conversation with scottharmon about student confidence, CIS 775, CIS 560, and the CIS 301 -> Math 510 -> CIS 505 / CIS 770 -> CIS 575 sequence.
- 3. Why does everybody think I'm very busy? People haven't seen very busy! KFL is very busy. GWB is very busy. I'm just mildly busy. ;-)

- 4. Is it just me, or have computer users become less tolerant of cross-platform or formatting differences?

Oh, and on behalf of masaga the Robbed: <PRIAM>Have you no honor? Have you no honor?</PRIAM>
