You Think I'm a Programming Language Geek/Whore/Sadist/Whatever?
Check out this guy talking about these guys and their Lisp to Python conversion. WTF? I don't know what's weirdest about this: that Lisp is still around, that anyone would write web sites in it, or that this scenario actually makes Python look good. Actually, the weirdest thing is probably how upset everyone seems to get about the whole thing.
I swear, the best thing about working on the Windows platform is not having to be an evangelist and zealot all the time. I just get my work done. With time left over to mock.
I used to work with this guy in Houston who had done an art project in college where he had made plaster casts of the breasts of about 30 women. We're not talking busts here: we're talking the cast, the impression, the negative. Here it was, five or so years later, he's married (and swinging, but that's a whole other story, or is it?), living in a small, two-bedroom apartment, and he's still got all these things hanging on the wall in his home office! Not that it wasn't cool, but now every time I read about one of these celebrity anatomical molds I think back and wonder if once in a while that guy in Houston takes one of these casts down, mixes up a batch of ballistic latex or something, and reconstitutes the forever-young chest of some chick that modeled for him in college. Now that's creepy.
