    I regularly back up all the data that I really care about, so I suppose I could do what you suggest. Or I could just buy a new machine altogether. Either one of those is still a hassle (in my...

    I've done that before, but the problem is that many (not all, but some) of the names are sufficiently cryptic that I'm afraid to stop them, since I don't know what they actually do. I guess the...

    Sounds so easy. Not to pick just on you, because there's talk by others in this thread about good teachers and bad teachers, but I don't think that's so easy to evaluate. Not that that's really a...

    I think your priorities are inappropriately skewed. You should be suggesting to your buddy that his hideous wife become a client of a local plastic surgeon. (I won't even get into the horror of...

    For the reasons I gave (at least), I think it's better to hold back early than late. But even if you're held back early, you'll still always be "the old kid" in your class and people will likely...

    Too many words for you to understand, apparently? I thought this part was clear: "absent compelling circumstances, I'm in favor of keeping kids with their age group."

    Really? I wouldn't be so sure. I think people commonly make the mistake of thinking there's less going on with with small children than there really is. On this particular subject, I can tell you...

    I'm pretty sure you're wrong about that, but if you're going to hold back, sooner is better than later. (And edit to add - the fact of being held back now can be a source of stigma in later years,...
