ring.ruleAll() – reference ring not found

Relevant examples are of great help when teaching. I was criticised by students this year for overusing “foo” and “bar” as variable names in my C couse. More imagination is needed, apparently.

Here’s a prime example which I shall recommend to Mr Whyley that he use in his Object Technology course: Rings as objects. And the initial comment to which that one refers..

    What the hell is wrong with using foo and bar? Point them out to me, i shall mock them greatly. Jeez, some students have no sense of humour ;)

    Well, quite. Alas the feedback sheets are anonymous, but somebody certainly took exception. Said it made the lectures more boring and thus harder to follow. Sigh…
