    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    According to his homepage at Texas A&M, he's teaching a single 600 level course. I think that he ought to be made to teach an introductory C++ programming course. Try to imagine what that'd be like

    Not completely correct. The 'e' in the end of 'Bjarne' shoul also be pronounced. I guess Adrian knows this best, though.
