I got some warm running clothes, because apparently it gets cold in Boston. At some point. Allegedly.


You're still out of town? You missed the snow.

I'm back now. Snow doesn't impress me as much as cold does =p

I also got a stack of books I'd asked for:
Programming Concurrency on the JVM


Would that be Programming in Scala, then? :)/>/>/>

I like the goals of Scala, but every time I look at it I can't help but think "Scala is the C++ of the JVM and I vastly dislike working in C++." I've found Clojure's model to be a "nice" abstraction over Threads for various types of concurrent tasks, but I think Erlang wins on concurrency of all the things I've sampled in the last couple years. I'll take another peek at how Scala does it, but the language flavor just hasn't resonated with me yet.

Seriously, one of the things that I'm really interested in about scala is the work they've done to make concurrency transparent. I've got a few experiments I want to do with this, as soon as I make the time. I'm intrigued by the idea of writing classes in Java and controlling them with little Scala classes.

My impetus for reading this book came from a list of suggested books by Rich Hickey for background on decisions he made in Clojure. I figure I'm overdue for some real concurrency reading anyway - implementing naive little thread pools is only the tiniest tip of that iceberg.

..... And the loot is in! Just came home from the big party at mom's. My loot list is as follows:

From a mysterious stranger: Gourmet Popcorn Foodstuffs

From my kids: A plastic bracelet, a skeleton key, and a slinky

From my parents: A Crock Pot, a new alarm clock, The Muppets DVD, 2 diabetic cookbooks, and a Star Wars Year-by-Year coffee table book.

Spoiler


Excellent holiday. Excellent family and friends. Excellent food. Couldn't ask for more.

Do not need. Do not want.

WTF is with people and their constant need to be unhappy with having enough?

Oh no...I've got enough to make me happy, I was merely pointing out the standard desires to have more more more more.

Or does he need some wire cut?

Got golf balls, a golf bag, tees, and gift certificate to a local pro shop to get a set of decent golf clubs (the ones I have are a K-Mart starter set from the early 80s). And a nice LL Bean sweater.

This Xmas loot officially qualifies me as old. :(
