I think that's great news, thanks for posting. To be honest, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now. I couldn't do another full time course, it's too much work and I'm too old, but cherry picking for the sake of interest is another matter. I wonder when the British will get involved?

Many thanks, stalkervision---post of the year (on the 1st of Jan yet!). I know masses of people who will be interested. Great stuff. The computer becomes the Uber Educator.

Heard it myself many times wafting from the quad during games. I live a stones throw from the campus.

Ah, the dire dull, dreary Gunz arises from his grotto:

Thy hand great Dulness! lets the curtain fall,
And universal Darkness covers all.
