  (email not shown publicly)

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.

[ #18116 ]

Why is Java so hard?. Favourable references to Perl too.

Can the people who wished EJB and other monstrosities on the masses kindly take note ? (fat chance, but I can dream). A quote from the bottom of this page seems pretty appropriate too.

[Perl is] more like a tank than a mine field. It may be ugly, but it shoots straight and gets you where you're going, if you don't mind a few squashed daisies. --Larry Wall
