  I consider it an engineering discipline.  Real Computer Science is now named
  Theoretical Computer Science and is unintelligible for your regular run-of-
  the-mill practitioner.  I think what is now called Computer Science should be
  calld Applied Computer Science, but that is not going to happen.

  urgent, do not use the word "urgent".  If you need an immediate answer, give
  me a reason, do not shout "for your immediate attention".  Thank you.
