Re: Perhaps a Computer Science degree should include History courses.

Pissing in the wind I'm afraid TheElder. I mean, everyone knows women were utterly suppressed prior to the Enlightenment. Take that Doctor of the Church* Hildegard von Bingen (1098 – 1179). She only managed to write three great volumes of visionary theology, write the Ordo Virtutum (69 musical compositions, each with its own original poetic text and at least four other works), medicinal and scientific writings, and invent an alternative alphabet. One imagines that she might have achieved something of real importance if she hadn't been so suppressed.

* Doctor of the Church = saint recognised as having been of particular importance
