Well... perhaps it's a question of timing...

I'm trying to keep up with some New Year resolutions:


And therefore learning a little language named Lua:


The catch is that I have been doing OOP for well over a decade now, so 
me first Lua perversion is to build an OO system of sort:


Ironically enough, Xah Lee's post spelled out quite incisively all the 
things I was attempting to do in Lua, but from the opposite point of 
view. Therefore my sincere enjoyment of his post :)

Even though Mr Lee seems to have quite a reputation in some circles, I 
have to admit I enjoyed reading some of his, er, more convoluted essays 
as well.

Plus, a man which such cinematographic tastes [1] cannot be entirely 
bad :P
