It is somewhere between ‘oddly disturbing’ and ‘outright terrifying’ to have another guy write poetry about me.
More to the point, it is also terribly inaccurate. I do fear receiving more adoring prose by responding, but I feel I do need to point out the more obvious flaws.
- Process freezes and applications hung. I find it difficult to blame java for all my hung applications. I did try, but since some weren’t written in java I had to desist.
- Netbeans is a good IDE – I use it for java and C development and i’m hoping to use it for Scala development. It’s not perfect, but fantastic for the price.
- I never said do system programming in Java. Though there are*extremely* good reasons for doing this and I should really write about it at some time. Funnily enough I recall being called a heretic for writing system code in C rather than assembler so it’s quite funny to be accused of this – well it did make me laugh anyway.
- I felt the point was lost when suggesting python was the language to use…. Clearly delusional thinking. Python is good for glue code and that’s really where it should stop. Yes, I know i’ll probably burn in hell for saying that.
It’s been a long week so i’ll conclude by saying that the poem was odd, factually incorrect, clearly the product of a sick vogon mind. Anyway, in case anyone wonders, the poem author and I work together and it’s all in good jest – well I hope it is, but if you hear of some strange event on the news then it may be because the poetry has turned into……….. s…o…m…e…t..h…i…n…g……s..i…n…i…s…t…e…r
