Hi All:

Many years ago (when dinosaurs roamed the Earth), I was a Computer Science TA at the University of Toronto. One of my jobs was to review material taught in class and to mark the computer programs submitted by the students in my teaching section. One assignment was due on Friday, the 13th. I made some weak joke to my section the week prior about not accepting triscadecaphobia as a valid reason not to hand in the assignment.

The following week, I received a number of assignments addressed to Mr. Triscadecaphobia.

And thus on Friday, the 13th, Ieuan learned not to use big words around Frosh.

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "Frosh ideas" ab Arthur
