You must eat the heart of a senior programmer.

I have to ++ this node because it is true. It requires mad skillz to even attempt. Once you can prove your might against the established senior programmers, they MUST accept you into their ranks. If not, eat another heart. It took me a few hearts until they acquiesced, but in the end, I got what I wanted.

I find eating the hearts raw in front of others has a greater effect than bringing along a hotplate and making a sautee, but the taste of raw heart might make you gag the first couple of times.

I thought it was the brain. That's where the smarts are.

But also the Prions. You wouldn't want to get Mad COBOL Disease, now, would you?

 [thezip]: So I have a script that generates a log file. After script completion, I want tohave VIM open this logfile. [thezip]: i don't get the command line "back" until I close VIM. No what I want to happen... [thezip]: I currently don't have access to CYGWIN, else I'd just do a tail -f on the logfile. [Corion]: thezip: If you want to open vim and can live with opening a second console window, use start "The results" vim.exe c:\path\to\logfile .log [thezip]: Ooops... I lied. I guess Cygwin is back. I'll just do a tail -f instead. Better. Sorry for the noise.
