    I didn't see ANY part-time Computer Science degrees at U of W. It's also 1.5 - 2 hours away from me.

    Can you not do it through another uni "off-campus"? That's what many people do who live in the country, at least here anyway.

    That way you never need to go anywhere, and for exams just apply to do them elsewhere.

    They don't have a Super Computer like U of T though.
    I wonder what OS a super computer uses?

    I have a friend in their software engineering program. The workload I heard is crazy, but apparently he enjoys it. It's an extremely competitive program to get in from high school (>95% avg required).

    I wonder what OS a super computer uses?

    But they have a Ubuntu repository mirror!

    That graph is fantastic -- as people realize that Linux is an equivalently-functional system to their traditional UNIX choices, they are switching to it rapidly. I can only assume that it's due to Linux being open source, and that's exactly what you want when you are putting together a custom OS to run on custom hardware.

    I also like how Windows is barely even on the chart.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}
