    I'm not Scipio but if you know Python already then it's probably best to use that. If you're planning on using funny characters you might have to look into doing stuff with unicode but you probably know that and python's fairly modern and so should have something that can deal with it. And presumably it's quite good at dealing with strings (unlike Fortran. Fortran would not be a reasonable thing).
    Ok, cool, will look into if ever I get the chance. I'd only be using letters like A, B and C anyway.

    It is a grammar thing :tongue:

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/payed
    http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/payed.html

    And I was either speaking archaic english or using it in the sense of paying a rope out, I haven't decided yet.
    It's not a grammar thing at all, it's just a spelling thing. :rolleyes:

    I love this bit:
    'male and female students frolicking with midgets dressed as Oompah Loompas from the film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.'

    And the next sentence being: 'The vile photographs, taken earlier this year, illustrate the twisted initiation rituals students must go through to enter some of the top university's clubs and societies.'

    That made me laugh so much

    Lol, I just got sent this. Hadn't realised they'd fined the poor guy.

    Edit: Wait... the phallus thing is 2 years old.

    There was a 4 foot phallus on Monday behind Queens', but the porters destroyed it because we have a chreche (Spelling? Though on hindsight I don't care :tongue:) here ¬.¬

    The best thing is that there's a seemingly endless supply of ridiculous comments, all highly ironic.

    It was not good. I slept for 40 minutes of it. The only value of going was to see Craggy.
    That lecture was purely shallow, sentimental waffle! It had negative levels of theoretical value. Worse still, nothing said could be used to answer the question 'Why did Socialism fail' in an exam. He just spent an hour repeating the fact that it did, in between random anecdotes
    I enjoyed watching the snow, though, which did the large floating flake stage round then.

    It's not a grammar thing - "payed" is not an English word...
    ...not this side of 1650 anyway.

    Socialism hasn't really been tried yet, so it can't exactly be said to have failed

    In case you haven't seen it already Craggy, these are the original designs for Fen Court.

    How did we end up with the one that we did?

    I went to the late tonight at the ADC. I rather enjoyed it, I think the Varsity review is quite fair in it's comments.

    Don't we have the first of those pictures? The building's alright its just the materials they used..

    And I agree about the socialism thing.

    Oh no you guys are really making me kick myself. I did everything wrong!


    We went to Road... which wasn't particularly great, and then left before the end to get over to Downing on time for the Shadow Footlights show which was utterly crap..

    And we could have gone to Feelgood yesterday but the Shadows were tired. Or even Feelgood instead of the stupid Footlights.

    And TSR is not letting me edit my post, so I'll have my rant here.

    I was on the way to the ADC when a couple of ***** in an unmarked van drove past me on Trinity Street and chucked a snowball with some force at point blank range into my eye. I sighed and moved on, thinking about something else at the time and so wasn't really concentrating, but it was quite annoying.

    I was going to go on Wednesday but switched my ticket to Friday. The end was staggering and there were places where I was helpless with mirth.

    We do, those were the options presented to the fellows.

    The problem with modernist buildings is a) they now look very dated and b) they look crap in anything other than blazing sunshine.Although I must admit that as these things go, Fen Court isn't too bad. I'd have preferred the 3rd option.
