tinman spent a few years mucking around industry before going back to school for a Masters. Currently not enjoying the weather in North England..
He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.
Lots of junk food, endless fizzy drinks and coffee.. the office looks like a cyclone through a garbage dump.. yep, its cutover time.
Annoying that I get landed with the module that is lacking in requirements.. means I get to work like a dog these days, trying (scrambling) to finish.. but hey, its only for a few months more (*this is the time I start praying for universities to accept me*).. Game of thrones is building up nicely.. I managed to squeeze in an hours worth of reading last night.
Came across a slightly weird thought/problem today writing a code generator. I use a phrasebook and embed a variable name (ie: $table_name). Inside a foreach, the variable $table_name takes different values.. Unfortunately, when I write out the phrasebook string, I get no value.. I'm sure its a global/local variable side effect that I havent seen.. need to check it out a bit more.. Ended up doing a regex substitute, which works, but err.. isnt as nice
