The boss wanted a whitepaper on something or other one time, we gave him one of those. I love what it does in the references section.

The references are very amusing. A whole lot of stuff is considered harmful, or no longer harmful:

I see Alan Turing and Dennis Ritchie in there. It'll also mix in the authors' names you give it, so you can end up co-authoring something with some pretty impressive folks! smiley-grin

Well, there's probably a paper: "Coffee no longer considered harmful."

Everyone I know who drinks coffee is of that opinion.  I'm thinking it can't be good for our minds long term.

My only advice to you is to be damn sure to not place yourself between me and the coffee pot when I first get up in the morning. Never drink the stuff after noon.  smiley-wink

Reminds me of a joke I told a while back after seeing a biology lab device named autolab. I was joking that it would have an ethernet connection and automatically submits papers based on results it tests. I'll definitely check out this auto paper gen. The example paper looks very nice and the tone of the language sounds the same to other sci type papers I've read, at least to someone speaking English as a second language.

The Considered/No longer considered harmful thing is a well known CS in-joke:

On my first platform, the Atari 800, there wasn't even a GOSUB in the ROM BASIC.  So the way to do a GOSUB was to set a variable before doing your GOTO to the "subroutine" and at the end of the "subroutine" do a pseudo-return like:

IF rp=1 GOTO 130
IF rp=2 GOTO 780
GOTO 1830

etc.

The code for my bulletin board was a freaking mess.  But it actually worked and ran for months between reboots.
