It is embarrassing that the granddaddy of dynamic languages looks like a granddaddy.

(Yeah, I know we weren't the first, but we paved much of the way)

    It is so true! I mean even the LISP guys (the original crotchety old programmers) are getting a makeover. Meanwhile we are all still rolling our 20-sided die and stroking our RMS beards complaining that Matts Script Archive ruined it for us all. It's time we shaved that beard into a soul-patch and took up snowboarding or something!

    Yes, perl had a glory yesterday and paved the road - much of the way or not much of the way. But it is sad, as that's the only thing we can say today.

    That ++ is rather dramatic. You have chosen the best opportunity to show how you welcome critiques, and how open minded you are.

    Long time ago there was a bad king, every time someone disagrees, the king kills him. One day this sly minister said to the king: "Dear king, I really really disagree with you, you worked so hard for the people and never cared your own health". The king praised him for his bravery and awarded him 100 slaves.
