There are weightings that allow getting Python, Java, C, and Delphi to
be "favored." It wasn't clear that there was a way to get Perl and
Lisp to get to the top of the list.
(concatenate 'string "cbbrowne" "@ntlug.org")
Strong language gets results. "The reloader is completely broken in
242" will open a lot more eyes than "The reloader doesn't load files
with intermixed spaces, asterisks, and <'s in their names that are
bigger than 64K". You can always say the latter in a later paragraph.
