Default Wow, what a ride!

Just wanted to thank everyone involved, especially Prof. Abu-Mostafa for a first-rate course. Having not been a student for many,many years its amazing to see the advancements in problem-solving technology that are more or less taken for granted for today's students. If I'd had to do (most of) these problems using the standard-issue slide rulers that I had as an undergraduate, it certainly would have taken much more time Even though you need to get the theoretical stuff down, its so much easier to understand some of the concepts when you can do the computational modeling thats available on your home computer or laptop (or even iPad) with very little effort (after the initial learning curve for the math packages).
