in reply to Favorite Winter Activity

Picked skiing, though I'm currently transitioning to snowboarding. I tried it the first time a few years ago, but with a rental board that was poorly maintained and boots with major overhang. Came into the lodge that night, hit the bed at 7:00 pm, and didn't get up again until 9:00 the next morning. It hurt.

Bought my own board this year to force myself to learn it. Gone once so far. There was an awful a lot of ground on that hill, and I hit most of it face-first. But I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

[ambrus]: 1nickg: obviously the gamers don't know. but anyway, I need the whole room backlit, because watching a monitor in a dark room (like many people do) is tiring for my eyes, even more so than doing it in a lit room.
[1nickt]: ambrus I agree. I suspect one's eyes are always trying to adjust across the boundary between very bright and very dark ... like a camera's autofocus struggling to choose the target.
