simonflk is the new handle for $code or die. This is not for any sort of votebot; I am bored of $code or die and feel like working my way up the levels again. You can also visit my website.

Editor wars

I don't engage in OS/editor wars. (or any other wars for that matter). I'm running Redhat Linux at home and my editor of choice is GNU Emacs. When on Windows, I like to use UltraEdit. Use whatever editor/OS/etc you are comfortable with and ignore those that tell you that you are a freak.

[Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Ah, that will be next Friday for $work ;) Drinking enough water is key ;))
[Corion]: But then, maybe that's just my experience with things, and maybe Hacker News is just people much younger who haven't seen more than one tech cycle...
[choroba]: s/water/bear/ and s/enough/too much/
[choroba]: beer
[choroba]: oh ok
[marto]: I crashed the ScotLUG Christmas night, having never actually been to ScotLUG
[choroba]: Corion yeah, I probably already told you about how Bjarne Stroustrup was asked whether he still watched the new tech trends and what really impressed him
[choroba]: His reply was "I watch them, but I haven't been impressed in the last 10 years. There's been nothing new". That was 2 years ago :)
[ambrus]: Ok, the docs is somewhat unclear. It does say that when an object is garbage collected, it will get cleaned up, and eventually can no longer get messages. It's not clear how long this takes, eg. I think it's kept alive until its queued events are handled
