Saturday was a long day, filled with OO, compiler optimization, and syntactic sugar. At the end of the day I found myself pleased by understanding most everything, and occasionally having the right idea in my head before the topic was finalized. Also at the end of the day I found myself completely exhausted.
It's Sunday morning now, and I've been up since 6:30 (9:00 now). I don't know why this happened, because my intent was to sleep in till two minutes to 10:00 and fly out the door.
Overall, I've had a great time this week. It wouldn't have been possible without generous contributions of time and space by Allison, chromatic, Damian, TPF, Nat, Vee, and Andy. I Thank you all so much.
