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.

am I that geeky?

[ #18577 ]

I was asked by my sister to "mind the house" while they go on a month long holiday with the kids. Since I hadn't much time to explore London when I came here, I agreed without thinking too much about it.. and remembered I'm supposed to be doing this Masters over here..

Since they're not very techie peeps, I started ferreting around for a laptop or something so I could work there. When I told my sister this, I got the following priceless comment..

Oh, don't worry. I know you can't stay away from a computer for that long.. I fixed up a laptop and broadband for you while we're not here.

I'm torn between gratitude and horror.
