Very pleasant indeed, such a pure OO language,
Old love doesn't rust.
My office at the customer site is a bit strange. One side of the office is a glass wall. The coffee machine, the social hot spot of the department, is on the other side of the wall. The coffee drinkers look straight into my office. It's like they are viewing monkeys at Rotterdam zoo (rotterdamzoo.nl/...).

Eventually everything settles down again. I'm in my cage, quietly minding my own business, having fun debugging my XML parser code, when I hear several objects smash into the wall. Huh? Not the kind of crashes I was expecting! The flying objects are instances of the class Peanut. I recognise them but am not familiar with the methods. Who is the sender? I turn around and see the smiling faces of M&M (Mike & Martin) at the door.
Sigh, life as a Henkus Giganticus is tough. Don't people have any respect for one of the few surviving specimens of an endangered specie?
