Not even! The editing of enormous spreadsheets for feeding into a database. Related to textbooks in a roundabout way, but I'm not doing any editing on those for this one.

That's why god made VB, perl, heck... you could export it to XML and use C++ or Java to do it ;) That's what I'd do because I HATE HATE  :stabs: data entry!

Perhaps, but try telling that to a bunch of editors with NO programming experience whatsoever!

One guy at my company did use PERL to help data entry on another project, actually, but when I was talking to him about this particular aspect of this project, he didn't think we'd be able to use it to help any.

In the meantime, I'm starting to consistently up my rate of completion from 3 matrices a day to 4 :P (oh joy of joys)

This! Absolutely pouring here... today the shuttle driver let us get off individually at our own apartments (which he isn't supposed to do) rather than making us all get off at the designated stop so we wouldn't have to walk through this downpour, which is on top of all the rain we've already gotten this week. :P

Carus,-a,-um means "dear". "Carae" is the feminine plural.

*clearly can't win* You know full well that diminutives are used as terms of endearment in Latin and its derivatives... and well... pretty much every language that has diminutives (all those that come to mind anyways: Latin, Romance languages, Greek, and Gaelic).

I love sleeping but wish I didn't have to. I'd have twice as much time to do everything (then again I'd probably be half as efficient to make up for that). :P
