I have had my share of head banging aginst the wall of the now. Some were
good some where bad but I learnt from them all. Ill never forget trying to
get Prolog used to write a Class Scheduling app back in 1986 or trying to

folks at various coleges that Doom was hands down a better VR than the
wire frame pewp they were touting only having them drop their jaws when i
