I guess I should be flattered at the influence that I obviously must have on the spread of he dreadful cancer (Mathematica), which threatens mankind with untold disasters unless stopped by RJF's valiant efforts to which he devotes so much of his time (payed for by California tax payers?) but it's all in vain - we are all doomed anyway. The worst Mathematica can do is speed it up a little. So while the going is good why be so depressing? How about letting us hear some more "cheerful facts" as in: I am the very pattern of a modern major-general : I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral ; I know the kings of England, and I quote the fights historical. From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical ; I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical ; About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot of news With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse ; (Joyfully.) With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse. Of course you should replace major-general with "professor of computer science" and make other suitable changes. Andrzej Kozlowski
