Cloudy Day In Metropolis

[ #24889 ]
Got an email from my father today:

"ok ... now that all of this is out of your system ... when are you returning to Tennessee to live ??"

Um ... never? :) Besides, i've just begun ... i've just begun. "Out of my system?" It was my system that got me out of Tennessee. I love Tennessee, but i'm tired of living among urban sprawl, and there are only a few places in this country that will offer an alternative -- only a few places that offer decent public transportation. Tennessee ain't one of 'em.

Speaking of beginnings ... delving into Krang. What a complex system! It doesn't help that the script i am modifying is complicated on top of that.

Complex vs. Complicated: they are indeed synonyms, but i don't use them interchangeably. Instead, i feel that complex systems are natural, and complicated systems are not natural. I tend to categorized complications as human screw-ups -- that is, some systems are just complex, but it takes a human to complicate things.

Krang is complex ... this script i need to modify is complicated. Enough griping about it ... time to earn my pay. ;)

*UPDATE bart++ for catching my [tye]po's
