Ha!!! Thunderbird has changed. it used to be that clicking "reply" would
send the mail to the list, now it sends it to the sender only and there
is a new "reply list" button. Yesterday I send this:

In preparing the talk I realized how much python is doing for you, so
there are a lot of details to learn and my talk is on the lengthy side.
I could easily make it twice as long. Who wrote: "I am sorry to write
such a long letter, I did not have the time to write a shorter one"
Let's see how it goes, I will be learning too (teaching).

So bring your laptops, have python3 installed, and the python-tk
package. type

>>> import Tkinter

to test it. Other great packages (I will not talk about) are numpy,
scipy and sympy.


And it went just to Matt instead of the list.

Yes, we are using python3. For the beginner there is only one difference
between python2 and python3:  print has become a function instead of a
statement and you have to add parenthesis.
