I have often quipped about this to my lecturer, who is very pro Java.
Suffice it to say, he's not keen. :) What really annoys him is when I
(seemingly) submit the Ruby equivalent of an answer into my work... :)
Hmm, in other news, it's my birthday. :/ I feel old (not as old as Ben
-- I don't think that's possible, is it? :P). But I have finally got a
copy of Vol 1 of "The Nuggets" collection. Four CDs of timeless and
classic 1960s American psychedelia music. Yay. :) I can _finally_
update my TAG/author bio to reflect this.
