I think you once called me a poster boy for Python as a first language.

I hope so. I do all this very part-time - and am out there doing some decent
Java stuff at this point - the step from Python to Java having been pretty

programming via Python - and despite my (considerable) frustrations on the
EDU-SIG list.
