It looks like soon enough I'll become a suit. Which means I'll wear a tie, not an administrative role. As have several other bloggers done before, I will start working at Heinsohn Software House. I will be working on both Java-ish stuff an AS/400ish. Since I don't have the slightest idea of what an AS/400 is (ohh, yeah I have seen a couple on a computing room somewhere) it will be a nice learning experience. (What the f. is a mainframe, how do you work with that? do you program that? how do you script in that? what is it? how do you multithread it? whuy don't you people like it?).
In order to enter school you only have to pay (hell, I got accepted and they hadn't even seen my picture, I might as well be green, for all they knew), but to get out you have to produce an enormous amount of paper (high school certificate, three copies of your name, as if they didn't have it already, english tests, in triplicate and the like), but so be it, for the sake of graduating.
I swear, I have tried, but coming back to windows after being in Linux is like going back to ride on an SUV after riding a tank (stolen from Neal Stephenson's "In the beginning there was the command line")
I finally got time and read "Cryptonomicon, thanks to a birthday loan present from Alejo. I liked it, but think that several of the stories don't really add to the plot. It is like the guy eanted to make it longer, so started making up stories to fill blank spaces of time, but gave those stories no relevance. Like writing the beginning and the end, first and then writing whatever is in the middle (specially part of Goto Dengo's tale and the story stolen accross the wall from Cantrell)
