Up too late

During my days as a physics student, I wrote h-bar so frequently that I often found myself putting horizontal slashes through all my h's, even when composing prose. Now, as I sit here simultaneously debugging some code for work and writing a column for my church's newsletter, I realize I'm inserting "\n", the newline escape sequence in C programming, at the end of my sentences.

I guess this is the written, scientific/technological equivalent of accidentally speaking the wrong language.
