Q: D'you know anything about JavaPerl? As in how they combine the two?
A: Well. Imagine that Java is a dainty, well-dressed Victorian lady. And Perl is a big, grimy 10th century viking with a hard-on. JavaPerl is like a small room with a bed.

Interviewing at EventZero. Getting that thing where it's hard to hold my head still. Still the talks went well.
Around twenty years ago. I used to play against a program that had an interesting view of legality of moves. Normally, it played the best legal move that it could find (not that it was much good, but I think this is what it was trying to do). But if you stalemated it, it couldn't find a legal move, so it played the best illegal move that it could find. Typically, this was picking up my queen, converting it to its colour, and capturing my rook with it.
Wow! An 80K offer from EventZero. Mo's new job anxiety damps a little of the excitement, still it's pretty cool. Had a good talk with my Aunt at Chili's.

"You can make enough money to buy a fucking gold plated hooker and a giant robot dick to stick in her, your still not going to be proud of yourself."
It's easy to be annoyed after you realise you're writing a lot more e-mail than you are receiving. Mike, Kyle, Tracy, Charles, Diane over the past few days. I don't think anyone's purposefully ignoring me, but it still grates.
A moderately gifted person who would have been a community treasure a thousand years ago has to give up, has to go into some other line of work, since modern communications puts him or her into daily competition with nothing but the world's champions.

Before you pluck even one of your precious asswhiskers, HBB, I want to implore you to reconsider. Don't alter your ass! Alter your attitude! Asswhiskers are beautiful, man! Why, my boyfriend's asscrack is the loveliest thing I've ever seen, and it looks for all the world (or just for me, actually) like there's a small, yappy dog tucked between his asscheeks. (Lord knows it sounds like there's a yappy dog in there sometimes.) And I love it! Hairy asscrack! Celebrate it, man!
