UHomework 1.14 BETA is out! See below.
    LONDON, UK (Fabricated Press) – Illusionist, performance artist, and general public irritant Blaine Davis announced Saturday that he will continue his quest to break the world record for consecutive days spent inside a portable toilet.
As of Saturday, Davis had not left the porta-potty for 19 days. The current record of 24 days is held by Greg Zisk, a Californian who remained seated on a similar toilet from April 4 – 28, 1983 while visiting Tijuana, Mexico. Zisk later claimed his feat was involuntary.
“When I realized I couldn’t keep up with my homework, wasn't sure if I would be able to go on,” a clearly exhausted Davis proclaimed through a loudspeaker atop the specially-constructed fiberglass commode in Fitzroy Square. “These stunts get really boring without something to help me do my homework, you know?
“But then a very generous benefactor sent in the Sony VAIO laptop,” Davis continued, “It had UHomework installed so I was able to do my homework and was finally able to keep going. Not only will it give me the option to set my favorite browser, it will also give me the option to uninstall it by typing uhomework -r. Its all-new install script will install UHomework, even if I pass out from the fumes in here.”
Standing by with a team of medics, Dr. Charlton Tottenham of the Royal Society for the Amelioration of Art Damage noticed an improvement in Davis’s condition within an hour of the Sony VAIO's delivery. “We think the quickness of the program have done wonders for Mr. Davis’s psychological health,” he said. “And that’s not even mentioning the new help feature, although I should think he wouldn't need it since UHomework is so easy to use. It’s not as if he’s got anything else to do.”
The emotional toll of the stunt was evident in Davis’s voice as he made the defiant announcement. “I call myself a magician,” he said in a wavering voice, “but it’s you people who make the real magic happen. Catholics and Anglicans, Eurotrance listeners and hard jungle listeners, Millwall supporters and West Ham supporters – all united in wonderment at the wonder of my wondrous performance.”
In response, an estimated eight passersby briefly turned their heads toward Davis before continuing on their various ways.
“I may be the one inside this portajohn,” Davis sobbed, “but every one of you is locked in the portajohn in my heart.”

What is UHomework?

What is UHomework? I have done all this work for you and you are asking me what UHomework is? This is extremely insulting. I will not stand for this! You are the most ungrateful little..... OK here it is.

UHomework is a merge of GHomework and KHomework. It has a user-friendly interface and loads quickly for you on the go people. It is Internet based so don't worry I didn't knock myself out making this program. Currently it is only made for Linux distrobutions so ha-ha you PC and Mac people! UHomework  has many helpful search engines for homework that include SparkNotes, Wikipedia, Wiktionary, and Google.

Versions of UHomework:

UHomework will have a predictable release cycle of once a month. The current version of UHomework is 0.93.
