8, 8 days until Disney! Ah ha ha!

I am bored...

That is about it. I think for the last 4 years, I pretty much go through the same cycle.

Weekday - Work...Weekend - (Watch Movie / Go Out).

...Is this life?

I need a little bit more excitement?

Anybody have any suggestions?

South. It's humid around here, though it's an easy life. Err... for some lucky ones at least. :-)

Coconuts, beaches, no natural disasters, not so many lawyers and "Justice", no "politically correct thinking", no CNN and Fox. On the other hand, you have the money and that's about it. LOL.

Hey, did you know that I find your "politically correct thinking" very amusing in a good way? You refrain from open discussions, though I wouldn't want to hear about your gossips. :-)

If this is directed at me. I try to have some class.  You never know who is watching.

I think you are nice, Berlin. Just don't follow the Lisp nuts or the Python playground kids. :-)

Keep cool and learn C# when you can -- it's pretty much one of the most important techs of the next years.

"Keep cool and learn C# when you can -- it's pretty much one of the most important techs of the next years."

I don't think so. C# is way to vendor specific. Language-wise, I have heard some good things. But, if you want an Enterprise solution on a unix/linux/windows environment, I would stick with Java. Java has some language issues, but it is pretty popular and that in itself gives Sun some wiggle room.

On lisp, those langauges really let me get to try new things in terms of application development. Will it help me write some killer app, probably not. But then again, neither would Java or C#, so at least I am messing with a set of sub-niche technologies.

Why is Java not vendor-specific? Doesn't Sun still have a stranglehold on it?

Well, sure. But, Sun opens a lot of their specs as well as gets community involvement on new features (JSR Specs).

There are a couple of popular runtime implementations; jrocket (BEA), IBM has a couple.

Some of the most popular J2EE (Java Enterprise Edition) applications are NOT written by Sun (JBoss, Weblogic, Websphere).

Your choice. :-)

I remember a Shard of Ultima Online (MMORPG) which was written in a pretty early version of C#. Those developers must be very good at C# now. But you can learn as you go as well, it just won't be as fun nor as thorough.

It's mostly used to hit the Enter key, I concede. :P I presume you have a right hand, too.

Take a walk on the wild side:

Pluck your eye brows along the way,
Shave your legs...

Hey, if that can work for Jimmy Olsen, it might work for you, too:
