This semester involved take some names and marks from a file, sorting alphabetically, dumping it out in a way that doesn't look like shit, finding the average, finding the median (which means sorting again by marks), and some other thing I can't remember. Now that I think about it, I could have written it quicker by compacting everything into one. Whatever, the way I did it is clean and easy to mark.
The quality of the keyboard I work with has an adverse effect on my ability to type. Every other key is backspace when using those godawful black keyboards in the classroom. That one white keyboard is manageable enough that I can actually be somewhat productive with it.
Of course, my typing is flawless with that Model M or those Apple Keyboards.
