As a student at a university (easily among the best in the country) that still teaches Fortran 77 to engineering students, I find that most of us who read your magazine cannot really understand many of the engineering and scientific terms that you routinely employ in your articles, nor can we grasp their importance and relevance when used (sometimes even when we know their meanings) because they are alien to our environment and knowledge of technology.
