: yeah, same guy. Cold* was
interesting, but the whole time-sucking effect of on-line
chat has sort of turned me away from it. I might drop by
your MOO later on today though.
I feel honored that I'm now responsible for half of all
bruce's diary entries :-)
So the article on GObject renewed my interest in Objective
C. The last time I used it for a project I totally loved
working with it, it seemed sort of like C with objects. As
opposed to C++, which is like C with objects and operator
overloading and a template system and data hiding and... I
suppose C++ has its place somewhere, but I'm more a fan of
Python's "we're all consenting adults" object system, and it
seems like ObjC is much closer to that than C++.
I think ObjC might be a relatively easy sell at work, since
it allows the kind of object oriented programming we tend to
do with structs, and doesn't require any additional
libraries. I wish I knew more about performance impacts,
and I wish I could remember what dynamic binding meant.
Maybe I'll work on the grad school application tonight...
