My collegaue Bettina Giemsa has a post over on her blog, Hello CAD. If you get a moment, check it out. It's excerpted below. Don't let the title fool you. This post is about Mathcad, and a little fun Friday activity: rhyming. Take a look...
This rhyme was just added to the Mathcad page on Facebook today and I like it a lot
a) because it is a rhyme and thus shows the creativity of our users
b) because it really highlights one of the core benefits of using Mathcad – its ease of use and advantage over spreadsheets.
We had just recently started this Mathcad page on Facebook and I really enjoy seeing it grow and seeing the users interact with us in a rather informal way.
The inspiration for this rhyming game came through someone else’s message on Twitter “… Mathcad Prime is worth your time”. This makes a marketer’s heart jump for joy, for sure!
There is a poem (with comments) about Mathcad in Russian poetic portal:
More correct:...you will enter directly into paradise! "
More correct = Better translation
Sounds nicer that way.
Have a laugh with a Mathcad graph.
Mathcad is Fab compared to Matlab.
Create that array the Mathcad way.
For writing a mathematical sheet
Mathcad Prime cannot be beat.
I put it all down
without a frown
And it all looks incredibly neat
Math-cad, it is my best mate
When I want to integrate. ... (goes well as a Jody call )
I did have a go at Zen Mathcad once ...

The monk Sinu asked the master Tanu "what is the true way?"
The master replied "If you call it 8 you oppose the fact, If you call it 11 you deny its reality."
Sinu asked again "will I find the truth?"
The master replied "As enlightenment approaches, the truth changes"
The master had wise words for the student
8 was revered by the masters
11 claimed eternity for itself
But 12 showed the cycle of mysteries was unbroken
(plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose - who'd a thunk it, substitute 15 for 8 and Prime for 11 ... suggestions for 12?)
