I always hated math, that is why I turned to computers quite early. They are the tools that stop us from having to deal with repetitive calculations, much like a shovel is the tool that helps us not having to touch dirt :) IMHO we need a lot more of that thinking. For example: A web site is a chance to communicate, sell products or solve problems of other human beings. We do develop for the other human beings, not for the web site.
