Paolo Carlini has been and gone. Now he is back in Italy and working for Suse, getting paid to do what he's been doing so well all along, but now raising Suse's stature in the Gcc/C++ world. Sometimes justice happens.

Shortly before he left, I ran into Ian "Intent to Package" on the train, wearing his Ximian monkey shirt. Paolo and I didn't get a chance to go out with the Ximian folks before he had to leave. (Not that C++ work gets the respect it deserves at Ximian... evolution would certainly crash less if it were written (well) in C++.) If you ever need advice about a movie, ask Paolo -- he's seen all the good ones.

forrest: It's good to be getting away from Perl, but don't bother with Java for your HTTP coding. Use libcurl.
