Excellent. Welcome back (officially back, that is). I hope whatever private stories are involved with this change have also been resolved with a minimum of fuss. Your future posts are greatly anticipated. The Why I Like Functional Programming post got me started down the slippery slope of LISP and Scheme. Thanks for contributing to my expansion beyond the world of C-based languages :-)


I just realized that I was using the same sig for nearly three years.

    I don't mean to sound trollish, but why does everyone seem to be going nuts over Why I Like Functional Programming? I've read it three times and I still don't see what's so original/insightful etc about it. Could someone enlighten me? thanks

      I just liked it because it was a different approach to writing code than I had used before, but written in very comfortable, familiar terminology. So it's not so much that it's a great enlightenment on functional programming. More like it nudged my brain out of a particular pattern. That's all.

      It doesn't have to be perfect, just different from what I've already seen.
