The little things in life.

Today I discovered a new joy in life...typesetting mathematical equations in OpenOffice. I think it's quite strange, but writing my Partial Differential Equations paper this afternoon was an incredibly relaxing and fun experience. I'm going to see if I can find a way to attach a picture of it, because it just looks so nice -- like something you'd see in a textbook, not something created in a few hours with absolutely zero experience in typesetting prior to that (I guess that's a testament to how easy the system is to learn).
Anyway, I'm as surprised at this as most of you no doubt are, but very grateful to boot. I really needed something related to school to be fun this semester...
