Someone else's beautiful rant

This is what linked to the python info:


And this dude is just full of interesting stuff:

Man, I'm getting lost in his site. He writes well and says things I like to hear.

Fly by... *Head spins* What is it that you do?

Oh, Python... ok. Not familiar with it. Sorry just saw that. =-/ It's gonna be a long night.

Eh, just read you're initial python post. It sounds interesting. I ahd looked into learning perl and quickly looked away in fear, mainly the syntax scares the hell out of me! I think someone has a python book around here. Maybe I'll check it out.

First semester in college, someone hooked me up with a $20/hr gig to learn perl and html and do a poll for toyota's website. Or maybe it was the news feed thing they wanted--I did two projects, and it was a longish time ago, and a very hazy part of my life. I got $25/hr for the second project, but took too long on it and was fairly irresponsible so I didn't get repeat business. That was late 1995, early 1996. I've never really gotten "into" perl, though I did one insane (and memory-leaking) site for a cellphone service reseller (I think?); crazy checkout process with lots of nearly-random logic. From there I branched out into developing websites with c, then back to perl, then to java/jsp. Which is my main web experience at this point, though I'm starting to do a lot of php.

La. :) I do hear good things about python, over and over. But I don't have a single project that I would want to do in it at the moment, and way too many projects.

Yeah, Python as in the programming language, which I don't actually do (but could... which was his sell). And mitre_box's.

I do software, typically web development. front-end, back-end, server administration, graphic design. I'm trying to break into games (or just develop a string of my own) in my "spare time". Which might pick up again at the end of January?

Anytime I see "Orbitz," I'm reminded of the (short-lived) soft-drink with the floating bits in it.

The soda was clear, and the floating bits were flavored - there was an "Orange Creamsicle" flavor where the soda was cream soda in flavor, and the floating spheroids were orange-flavored.

I didn't like any of their flavors, but I DID give them a shot. And gave rise to the local inside joke of "Shut up and chew your drink, Eric."

I remember that, now that you remind me. I never gave it a shot. It certainly looked gross. Then, I like boba tea, so there's no telling...
