21:09 sivoais I've seen some horrible scientific Python. Once the code goes beyond the toy examples, the language *doesn't* matter if the programmer lacks discipline.

23:22 chm Wondering if you were still around or gone for the day.
23:45 perigrin Desperate Perl Hacker actually I think come from the XML world.
23:46 perigrin Tim Bray took the blame at OSCON one year cause he'd written somewhere that an XML parser should be "implementable by a desperate perl hacker over a long weekend".
23:53 pdurbin perigrin: that's awesome
23:54 perigrin not nearly as awesome as having Larry and Tim *Bray* walk up to the TPF booth and start talking to me
23:54 perigrin :D
23:54 * perigrin fanboy'd a little.
