Stupid Programs

February 25, 2008

Hey everyone, it’s been a while.  Judging from the title, you probably think that this is going to be a rant about how bad a certain piece of software is.  Surprise, it’s not.  Well, it is, but still, hang with me.

My school uses this software called Maple.  Maple is a math program that couldn’t be less user friendly if it tried.  Now, if you wanted to put in, two times X to the third power, most people would type 2x^3.  If you type this into Maple, you get an error.  Maple needs you to put it in as 2*x^3.  That’s right, in between every multipled term, you MUST have a * inbetween it.  So, as you can see, I don’t hold this software highly.

Now, one of the more humorous parts of this software, is that every time you get a problem right, it gives you a motivational pharse such as “You Rock!” or “Way to go kid!”.  Which brings me to the picture…

Mapel's a Genious

That’s right… Genious.  You’re a GENIOUS.  Wait…  Shouldn’t that be…Genius…?  That’s right. Maple’s programmers couldn’t even run spell check.  Ouch…
