Interesting. One of the common complaints levelled against some machine learning techniques (artificial neural networks and genetic algorithms spring to mind) is that their solutions are usually so bizarre that it's impossible to learn anything about the problem domain from them. You've gone the other way, which is pretty cool.

[robby_dobby]: marto: Oh, I see you're from an even colder north :-)
[robby_dobby]: marto: Ldn, right now
[marto]: icy here today, snow on the hills
[Corion]: Oh yes, Friday!
[Corion]: Last day at $work before 3 weeks of vacation (well, not that I'd be really travelling, but no-work-time ;) )
[robby_dobby]: marto: yeah, I'd eventually visit Glasgow some day - just to visit the home town of GHC :-)
[robby_dobby]: Corion: Oh, that's awesome! Your timing is perfect enough to see all hell break loose when you get back at work :P
[marto]: well, let me know in advance, I'll buy you a pint :)
[Corion]: robby_dobby: No, I'm returning in the second workweek of January. The main hectic parts are in the first days after the start of the new year
[robby_dobby]: marto: and, I'm not sure I'd be around here long enough for YAPC::EU
