Here's a place to let people know what, exactly, you can hack. (Or use.)
(Edited to remove graduated students. Revert if you feel that is wrong.)
Also for those who feel that they are inadequate because they cannot program in TeX/Mathematica, there will be workshops on these topics during Winter Study. All Math majors will receive an email about this soon. Anyone else can sign up by emailing Rahul Shah (09ras) or look in the daily messages/other appropriate communication media. ==Computer The Devil's Languages==
===Assembly Language===
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=06tfv Travis Vachon[Jing Cao] (kind of...)] now knows he should extend before division

[[Jing Cao]] Compiled his second C program with no syntax errors
Just compiled his 300th C program with 33 syntax errors
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=07mg_2 Michael Gnozzio[Arjun Narayan '10] (since dealing with pointers and manual memory management is so trivial, it's a good thing we have MPI to make C programming more difficult)] Hello world only
[[Arjun Narayan Andrew Triska '10]] Hello writes the world only's most complicated and boring text-based games.
[[Andrew Triska Jeff Marsceill '1008]] writes the world's most complicated and boring text-based games.

[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=08xjh Jerry He] will always be a beginner in this language. Just don't get it.
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=10arn Arjun Narayan] Will always be in love with this one.

But if she ever decided slightest notion of aesthetics were worth everything and anything, she'd be all up ons for chem reports TeX-ed.)  [[Aidan Finley '04]] spent a week teaching it to himself during his thesis crunch, which indirectly contributed to a case of sleep deprivation and a subsequent fall in Sawyer Library. This in turn produced a leg wound which required hospitalization during Senior Week.
[http://wso.williams.edu/facebook/view?unix=08xjh Jerry He] Used to be in the league but have since defected to using Lyx: the Wysiwyg Latex editor.
[[Rahul Shah]] Can TeX his Math homework when he needs to.
