Today I went to class, and realized I didn't have any of the books on me that I'd need to work on my lab writeup and MATLAB lab. So I went home, and just for shits and giggles, checked to see if Octave supported the tf() function (something very important in my line of work). I wasn't expecting it to work, since I haven't gotten OctaveForge installed yet (some added glue to make Octave more MATLAB-y). And lo and behold: Octave comes with tf, as well as step, and many many more useful functions. And a killer price :-).
Moved Freenet to my much larger /usr partition (don't ask, I just didn't know what the hell I was doing when I started). And I'm working on my lab! And listening to di.fm!
I am predatory, because I am stalking the work, and destructionating it!
