Math is not easy either

It is when you do it the experimental way.

Same goes for programming.

For some reason, I often like learning about programming, algorithms etc than actually programming - not that I do not like the latter.

Well of course Mr. Agnishom you do programming experimentally. That is why it is such fun.

If you would learn to do math that way then...

then it would make me dependent on computers?

Why, are you not an immobile computer yourself?

Of course, but I do not want to be dependent on another immobile computer.

So, everything in you life is governed by computers and everything is better we are constantly reminded. You are not being an immobile computer when you do math the way it was done thousands of years ago.

How was it done thousands of years ago? I do not remember.

Very good, you are one of 5 young people I have ever met that did not assume they knew about things they were not around to witness.

This bug is slightly different from the first one you listed. Here, I just click logout and then close the tab and reopen in. At that time, I am already logged in.
