Sorry. This strikes me heavily as spam - having looked at and filled in the 
survey with bogus answers. (And this is bizarre - I'm actually interested in 
multicore systems.) 

I read it and thought "Peter Dzwig" is a rather  anti social person, and then 
read back and noticed you'd written it. The survey has nothing to do with 
python, pycon uk or europython. 

To say I'm dismayed and suprised doesn't really cover it. (especially given it 
took 10-20 minutes to fill the survey with junk data, irrespective if I was 
filling in real data)

I answered one question properly - specifically how could you miss CSP style 
code as a coding style for parallelism in your description. It's the most 
widespread, heavily used, and practical approach for dealing with parallelism. 
(that is unless unix pipelines disappeared overnight)
