Hi Staszek,
do you really believe that these "kids" didn't experience the same
problems themselves?  Are you sure that these "kids" don't understand
the jokes?

BTW, I dislike the word "kid".  When I attended the high school, I had
my own opinions and I always had been pissed off if anybody treated me
as a kid.  It's very likely that some of the TeX guys at the
Werdenfels Gymnasium are more experienced than me. If there had been
a course about PSTricks, then they all ***definitely*** have much more
experience than me.

It would be nice if we could avoid the word "kid" if we are talking
about pupils.  As I said, most of these honorable guys have more
experince than me in some areas.  Treating them as stupid "kids" is
certainly insulting and counterproductive.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
