Personally i dont know anyone in my cs dept at uni, who had to interract with jstor/ebsco/datamonitor etc., for extended periods of time and did not have some sort of a script for search/ retrieval. And people built it not only because it was possible, but also because it's fun. It is accustomed for students worth their salt to mess with their college for IT it's systems/databases, for medicine stealing body parts (that appears to carry lighter penalty than what he was threathened with).
When I found out about his death today I felt a sense of loss, dont know why and it probably does not matter what matters is that I did.
@Matt, from reading your posts in this thread (& the related one) the tone of your posts create an impression that you are actually glad that it happened. I dont mind you being unaffected, but your presence in this thread is in bad faith, enough trolling, move on.
someone was "using ubuntu because it's bling" nearly crapped my pants, never thought i'd hear some one refer to linux as BLING!. cant use linux fully coz it really heats up the laptop & xfire doesnt support it :( i'll wait another bit. wrt OpenOffice, last version is brill though i use it on windows (charts in excel finally started to look good)
