Back after a long break, mostly because of exams.

Got eliminated after round-2 in this year's GCJ. It was fun, but I was hoping for a better performance this year.

Read an old blog post by Steve Yegge, that got me trying something I've been putting off doing for a long time. Started by coding a simple arithmetic expression evaluator. I'll probably start on something slightly bigger next.

ncm: Really good points. I read that blog post, and it is hard to believe that guy was actually involved in HotSpot. Most of what he says sound like "I refuse to believe it is that bad. It isn't Java's fault, it's your code that's doing it in a bad way". You comment wasn't offensive at all. I don't hate Java, and actually was a big fan not long ago, but simply denying Java has any weak points sounds highly idiotic.
