Thank you. I only hope my committee will also be impressed after my exams next week.

Re: Forum Old School
And Evc is still the best forum for folks accustomed to being the smartest person in the room to gain a little humility ...

All except for one member who will still be "the smartest person in the room", and will gain no humility whatsoever.

Hmm ... who do we know who's like that?

I wonder how many people are squirming?

Not me--it's been a long time since I felt like the smartest fella in the room, and I never felt that way here.

Even my cats outwit me.

Too much topic contamination happening
I think this topic has ceased to have sufficient focus, and is probably beyond refocusing.

Going to close, probably in about 15 minutes.

I do think the theme is a good one - I will initiate a "Your First Ever EVC Post - part 2", complete with a link back to this topic.

Admin writes:

It really helps moderators figure out if a topic is disintegrating because of general misbehavior versus someone in particular if the originally non-misbehaving members kept it that way. When everyone is prickly and argumentative and off-topic and personal then it's just too difficult to tell. We have neither infinite time to untie the Gordian knot, nor the wisdom of Solomon.

There used to be a comedian who presented his ideas for a better world, and one of them was to arm everyone on the highway with little rubber dart guns. Every time you see a driver doing something stupid, you fire a little dart at his car. When a state trooper sees someone driving down the highway with a bunch of darts all over his car he pulls him over for being an idiot.

Please make it easy to tell you apart from the idiots. Message 150
