    No way....:mad: that is so no true...

    Ever heard of DrScheme? worse programming language ever...

    and to be fair, i'm not that big a fan of java... i find the syntax really annoying
    Blasphemy! Functional Programming is far more enjoyable than dirty impure imperative languages... (and Scheme is a nice one at that!) :ninja:

    No its not!!! It's ridiculously complicated to do even the simplest things...
    although i have to admit that the list system is quite good

    Really? I've found my code to by far terser and less buggy in Haskell than other paradigms, the main feat is thinking functionally when solving a problem

    although admittedly, monads are a *****

    Speaking of maths, I'm unsubscribing from the "Someone explain the meaning of maths to me?" thread. It was such a good thread until that stupid ******** Simplicity came along with his "maths iz only subject, all other useless" trolling. Shame.

    Peterhouse is academic. Its just employing tactics to remind the undergraduates that this is the case...
    Meep, sorry, I appear to have started an argument with poor phrasing. Of course all colleges are academic. I guess I was talking in terms of the Tompkins table (which I realise isn't exactly the best measure). But however you look at it, Emma gets good results and likes doing so, but doesn't seem to feel that their undergraduates need 'reminding' of this - it seems to me that Emmanuel works more on a system of rewards than that of punishments - whatever floats your boat I guess Didn't mean to judge Peterhouse harshly at all, sorry.

    snow = snow + rugby = it was freezing today, but at least we won

    I handed in my worst piece of work ever today, I have no idea what my supervisor is going to think to that

    hope you're all currently having a nice time at Nando's!

    Ooh, Clare formal tomorrow :eek: What time should I meet people and where? *doesn't know way around Clare*
    Dunno, but wherever and whenever, you should meet me in B10 about ten minutes beforehand...

    (Original post by K.T.)
    Why yes, I am - although in my defence, I don't think I made the best impression. But I suppose that's for you to say.
    I don't think you made a bad impression? Or if you did, I've forgotten about it. :p:

    I recommend you kids arrive at 7.15 in order to get to sit together. Otherwise it's quite probably there will be a number of TSR parties.

    Dozens of maths lessons were spent programming my TI calculator :love: I'm actually quite impressed with how efficient I made the programs. (The processor was about, oh, 1Hz ¬.¬)
