  • You remind me of people who bitch about perl vs Perl. It just plain doesn't fucking matter.
    • I don't take writing tips from people who can't spell or conjugate. I don't hire database administrators who "know Postgre" or system administrators who "run RedHat". Why do the opinions of people who don't even know the name of the language (SmallTalk, LISP, ADA) matter?

      Programmers do have to manage fine details occasionally. I look for people who can handle that.

      • I'm just giving you my worldly advice. You're welcome to ignore it.

        I know .HTM - gizza job.
        • I do appreciate it. You've demonstrated you're smart and capable and dependable many times over. I'm not flipping your bozo bit if you miss a space sometimes.

          It's more that I'm giving myself permission to use a really simple discriminator to see where I should spend my valuable arguin' time. More and more, it's not on the Internet.

            You've only just found out that arguing with all comers on the Internet is a waste of time????

            :)

      • Strange then, that mr. Kay talks [homedns.org] about 'Smalltalk' instead of 'SmallTalk', and the ISO home of Ada standard spells [open-std.org] it as 'Ada'. :-)

        • Isn't it also strange that Red Hat's site spells it "Red Hat" or that Postgre isn't the name of a database?

          Contrarily, I do have the LISP 1.5 Programmer's Manual.

          • Maybe I misunderstood you. Did you mean that people who spell it 'SmallTalk' and 'ADA' get it wrong? (That'll teach me to do Monday-morning comments without having had coffee :-)
