A week and a half of Java cramming, and my brain just had some kind of weird rebellion. It's demanding that I sit down and code something in Perl. Something about looking at a Java variable declaration and call to a constructor just made me long for Perl's indirect object syntax. I don't know why.
Maybe I'll sit down and build some modules and code something here in a little while. I did get to write a short little program that extracted a link from an intranet site for a coworker last week.
Oh, and I had to build my own GCC to get things running. Twice. (Or four times, depending on how you look at it.) Somehow every complicated error I find in my career always comes back to building my own GCC. I've got that story written up and need to post it here when I get a chance.
