I am a heretic. My first programming language was Lingo.
Pictures of wives, kids, houses, cars and pets: n/a.
Favorite dish/drink: let's go to lunch and you will see.
When not hanging around at the monastery, i'm forced to work.
I'm doing 24/7, help desk, monitoring, reporting and occasionally some web stuff.
In a few years i will retire and i hope very much that i can forget all the mistakes i made as soon as possible.

Learning English At The Monastry
Some of my favorites:
From Thomas Bowdler, who in 1818 published a censored version of Shakespeare, expurgating "those words and expressions... which cannot with propriety be read aloud in a family."See also
"Trouble is, most of the time, he's not providing the service of a quick reality check, but rather the disservice of a bum steer down a blind alley of long redundant, archaic knowledge."See also

MidLifeXis in the chatterbox: «Ok, that didn't work worth didly squat.»
Corion in the chatterbox: «Well, now the direction of the changes, and the (non existing) revert war make sense :)»
Corion in the chatterbox: «Well, not "revert war", but "revert singular incident of aggression", but even that shouldn't happen, and in retrospect, didn't even happen :)»
Corion in the chatterbox: « I'm not sure if you should learn English from me ;)»

Hommage for a friend
I made a website for a very good friend of mine who passed away this year. Unfortunately the site is in german (english version under construction). Take a look at it...and enjoy the music.
