Is it just me, or does that sound like a basketball game from hell? 8)

Agreed. A body's got to pick where the energies are going to go.
Admittedly, learning of whatever nature is the only way to avoid doing
the same thing over and over and expecting different results. <eg>

Depends on the focus of the psych. dept. in question, i think. If the
dept. tends to put more efforts into experimental psych., that tends to
be the male-dominated psych. dept.; if more along the lines of social
psych., or counselling psych., women tend to predominate. The point is,
nonetheless, well taken. 

I wonder if more women code in Java than in C/C++? Or whether VRML is
the language of choice?

Mysteries to ponder...
