Riding the Train of Thought

Network Down

with one comment


My regular phone line is down since last 3 days, and the alternate method is slower than my usual dialup speed… so well, expect less activity from me – till I can get the phone fixed and resume usual work. Till then, I’m using the extra time (not spent browsing) for learning Smalltalk/V and Intel Pentium microprocessor architecture.

Smalltalk is an interesting language 🙂 Looks pretty odd, because of the difference in concepts of passing messages to variables as compared to usual functions & arguments. Its an old language – but I wonder why did such elegant languages die?!?! I wish Python a good deal of luck, because I would love to see it prosper and spread and perhaps reduce the brain damage that all the cryptic languages have caused to millions of computer science students!

Anyway, I shouldn’t write too much – it would be a wastage of bandwidth!! Ha!
