So, last night, I decided to learn LaTeX (well, to start using a frontend for it; I’ll leave learning the actual intricaces of markup until later), mostly because the bibliographic software I normally use requires me to write my thesis in Word (not strictly true but good enough for the moment). On the plus side it will make editting my thesis a lot easier. On the minus side I imagine my frustration levels will rocket into overdrive over the next few weeks. Still, come summer when I do decide to learn how to handcraft a TeX document I suspect I will geek out.
It is not going to be pretty.
