Get that academic discount, if you can. Marry or re-marry if you have
to, just to nail it down. :-)

Other than that, one trick is to buy a registerable copy of a software
package at a used computer store. For professional products - especially
Adobe's - the price of buying the used software and upgrading is usually
about one-third to half the price of buying the new package.

"So in the spring of the year, we took the fleet,
Every cask and cannon and compass sheet,
And we flew a Jacobean flag to give us heart;
While Pitt stood helpless we were waiting for Bonaparte."
