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.

Ted Wiles (Ted is an amazing hacker and programmer. It isn't uncommon for his digg.com articles to yield over 250 diggs in one day. He also is passionate about his art and has plans to do a thesis senior year that allows him to reinterpret famous art works completely through graphic design software. He is also very good at hacking.)
