"Brain Damage" software, actually. A Tribute to Dark Side of the Moon, sort
of the official album of the dorm I'd been living in shortly before writing

I really have to find some time to learn Python. My 12-year-old daughter
asked me about the difference between C, C++, Java and Python the other

learn Python. I gave her the book and asked her to teach it to *me* after
she figured it out ;-)
