  Computer Science has never been a science, and it is becoming more and more a
  engineering or technical school subject, not a university subject.  It is
  somewhat like mechanics, which is a hard subject in physics, and auto
  mechanics, which is not.
  Guide to non-spammers: If you want to send me a business proposal, please be
  specific and do not put "business proposal" in the Subject header.  If it is
  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.
