I've noticed more and more that I go to absurd lengths to avoid computing things. Everything from finding derivatives to solving integrals to simplifying expressions I've been doing on a computer for the past couple of years, and it's gotten so bad that I don't even attempt to do the calculations myself if there isn't a computer nearby. I think I've developed a computing phobia. I was writing a lab report today and spent 2 hours avoiding plugging numbers into the equations because it sounded like such dismal work to me! I especially hate ugly equations with lots of terms like hydrogen or Landau level wave functions. I didn't used to be this way - I used to LOVE computing things when I was younger and hadn't yet reached the point where calculators were allowed in school. Has anyone else ever contracted computing phobia and gotten over it?
