Funny, he doesn't look anything like I expected. I was imagining more of a Woz or lumberjack look all along. But back to the original post, it looks like I should start writing a language ;)

"harried" can be translated as busy or harassed (as in by more projects than you have time for). In that regards, yes Walter is very harried

very successful in the D community, I wonder - does Sean, Kris or Lars have beards? In the same line of thought, does Andrei have a beard? _Note_: this is not said to start yet another flame war, but rather to looking at this from a less serious perspective, so *please* don't take this to mean something more then it meant to be. --Yigal

Kris does, at least as of the DCon last year. A minor one at least.

Not usually afaik.

LOL. That is a real groaner! :) On another note, I think that this picture demonstrates that all of my proposals are good ideas and should be included in the language: http://villagersonline.com/users/russ/pictures/May%202008/
