I can't weld stainless...yet.

So, anyone remember the topic?

Oh, yes, it was great news about a fix for deliverator which will also address future scalability needs. Bravo!

Medical school would be good. I could apply my conservative political perspective and cut out a bunch of unneccessary stuff that just makes the system less efficient and wasteful. I've seen pictures of the insides of a person, do we even use all that stuff?

Like I've said before, I appreciate that there are people willing to learn so many smeggin' programming languages and be patient with an impatient consumer base, and put out a cool game. I wanted to make games when I was younger, but just one class in C in high school was too stressful and frustrating, so forget that.

PC, rofl, yea, remove that spleen, we don't need it.. cut out one of the livers.. hell, redundancy is unnecessary in today's world of excellent medical care.. and, in cases like the good doctor, remove the heart, he obviously doesn't use his.. *zing*

Ha doc, you funny.

(Translation : doing Inc a favour and not turning this into a ball-size comparison contest that seems to be the most entertaining thing to do at the moment).

[edit : oh yeah, a lot of compensating going on around here too]

That's good of you, WWL.

For the record, mine are bigger.

Aye, Erlang lives up to that, the RT capabilities are really nifty, along with the ability from the language/platform point to actually support crash/suspend resume cycles ( Software built without a "shutdown" procedure, but where you actively "crash" it to stop, means that its always got solid state written/recoverable, and does so in minimal time. The software behind GSM and phone routers are fex. made like that)

things like req. 5 is hard to beat with Erlang, The "while running exchange module" thing is really sweet if you get it to work (Requires some discipline to get it right though)

I hacked a bit in Erlang back when it was first released (Wee, made a tetris-game ;) just to get the hang of it, fancy, fun, but never touched it since.

Ever considered going with Intercal for development?

I think it'd be best to just port everything to unlambda.

At least that would keep the lisp heritage nicely. *Grin*

*waves to Toshy, Yoda, Roguelazer and Mystic along with all the other oldfolks*

Mmhm, Frankly I can't translate that, yoda.. *invokes the power of Mystic to translate*

Lexicon: Basically, discussing oddball computer languages that were more or less designed as elaborate jokes on the geek side. Sort of designing an English-sounding language with anti-English grammars.

Old folks? Hmph!

You can only invoke my translation power from ingame Spidey so...ummmm guess you have to come back or suffer from not knowing :P

*Mystic smirks "I know something you dont know"..:P
