Some are so very studious of learning what was done by the ancients that they know not how to live with the moderns. --William Penn
As a student of history, I think I sometimes fall into this category...not the ancients, really, but the past for sure. I caught myself the other day reading a novel that takes place during the Jacobite rebellion of '45 (as in 1745), listening to old jazz from the 20's, and watching 1940's House on DVD. This is probably most why the OSX support class is good for me. Yanks me into things that are cutting edge and in the present (instead of cutting edge in the early 20th century like the modern art I love so much).
