I can only dream about summer here in Moscow. Especially when I need
to go out and feel -15C on my face ;-) (actually I've lived in Kiev
before where winter is notable warmer).

Thanks a lot for you interest. By the way there are some interesting
tasks in Step that require more mathematics than programming. For
example simulation of soft bodies, fluids and gases - having this
integrated together with classical mechanics can be very useful.
