Shame about Ant. I reckon he should at least pay us a visit now and then. If
D becomes a serious commercial language in the next two years, which seems
eminently possible (especially if we can get some academic institutions
interested), then it'll be very good for all concerned to have been involved
at this stage, as we'll be the gurus.

Of course, Ant will be sorely missed. :-(

But he's more the man for making family the priority over d.  As special as d
is, it sure isn't worth the risk of losing family.  It's easy to overlook what
counts in this world.

I've seen plenty of death and broken hearts through the years on my job as a
paramedic.  It happens over and over and over again.  It's amazing how we human
beings don't see what counts until it's too late (or try to ignore it lest it
pain us).  It's been a slap in the face for me a few times and certainly keeps
me thinking.  So it's refreshing to see someone that cares enough.

I'll stop philosophising. Sorry!  Take it easy, Ant.  It could happen to any one
of us in one way or another.

Best wishes,

John

Well, it was like a "blue screen of death" on my marriage. We just rebooted it. We applied some patches to prevent the same to happen again. That will result in less time for D as more maintenance routines are required... It was my fault, I overclocked too high.. :) Ant

Glad to hear that. And glad you're alson working out your personal life, which is even more difficult with a woman around, because who understands women anyway? (sorry to any women out there, but I just think that's the honest truth). ----------------------- Carlos Santander Bernal

Don't apologise, for speaking a possible unpopular truth. Women are completely mad. But I suppose we are, too, from their perspective. And this is from someone who was raised in an all female household from an early age (after my dad died), and had mostly female friends well into his 20s. I think the older we get, the more the gap widens. Whether this is socialisation or innate, who knows?

I think that if we (and I mean all of us who take part of this ng) continued this thread, this could easily become the longest thread ever. So I'm just gonna say: 1) I don't think it's hard to understand men (being as simple as we are, who couldn't understand us? :D); 2) I don't think I'll ever know exactly what any woman wants; 3) And in spite of (2), we need them anyway. ----------------------- Carlos Santander Bernal

Probably as with any other programming NG, about 1 in 1,000. Is it socialisation, or is it innate? <G> (I'm being rhetorical. We can't possibly start a debate on this, can we?!) (( btw, I just think it's fab that this NG allows us to wander a bit. Other NGs are monitored by far too many pedants, which makes them dry, to say the least. Apart from being interested in the language, I come to the D NG because we have a lot of fun. Long may that continue. ))

I've worked with Patricia Nelson (you'll find her in the acknowledgements) on compilers on and off for 20 years. She's a crackerjack programmer and a good friend.
