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.
Another guy in the department introduced me to xtris, we play it inbetween work and I suck at it. Bleargh.
I managed to actually sort out part of the classloader. Whatever else you want to call Java, they are organized. Not exactly organized in the Perl sense, but things seem a bit more predictable to me than when I first started out. I no longer spend irrational moments wishing I was doing the same job in Perl.. is that just getting used to a language or is it growing up in general? Maybe a bit of both
