I hate microsoft word.

Although I do most of my writing using latex, some things are best done in word. Today I updated an class syllabus, and I found a bug in the tables feature in the macintosh version of word--text mysteriously disappeared, as if the text was too big for the cell. Word wrapping did not work, it was like the Bermuda triangle of text. And when I emailed my version to someone with a windows box and they mailed it back to me, everything was fixed. Weird.

That program is possessed.

This is why you should make your syllabi in LaTeX too! ;-)
