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.
The upside: faster internet link, not so many ports blocked (IRC, for example) the downside, the proxy cant retain a connection for more than a few minutes so I get logged in and out of IM services, which pisses off everyone who has me in their contact list..
Was bored yesterday, so fired up my Visual Studio
Postgres for Win32 works ok.. I have a couple of multi million tuple databases running and with some complex queries, the database still performs quite well. Not as fast as MySQL, but for a beta, its all that I could ask for.. now, when the final is released, hopefully all I need to do is a pg_dump and pg_restore.. *crosses fingers* pgPL/SQL looks sorta strange to a diehard PL/SQL programmer, though.. (just looked at the docs so far)
finished the RR Martins, started on Lustbader, a friend lent me Google hacks, which I want to start reading tonight, and still playing/practicing Warcraft 3..
