  Hi (Salut!) Nicolas,

if you feel inspired to write a little on the wiki, use this password:
[snip, sent in private mail]. Don't hesitate to create a new page or
pages. I may port (the Matlab vs. Octave related) part of the FAQ to the
wiki one of these days myself.

  Cheers, and good luck with Octave,


PS: I'm sure ULB students will spend less time doing GUIs and more time
doing numerical stuff in Octave than they would Matlab.
