Programmming et al.

My work and projects are all going very well. It's been a beautiful summer, but I've still been spending the rainy days and dark nights holed up inside working on my masterpieces

Programming is a ton of fun. I enjoy being able to construct from insubstantial ether whatever my mind's desire. Learning programming languages is like learning a new method of logic.

One night while talking over dinner about stuff going on, I slowly realized how many programming languages I'm currently using/learning.

Languages Standards Frameworks


The result of all this is most of my brain is swimming with braces, statements, constructs, and layouts.

I wish I could learn linguistic languages as fast/easily. Of course, a programming language has the benefit of a compiler, error handling, and syntax coloring. Linguistic method of the similar would involve having a small German guy and an Asian woman walking around with you correcting you on the fly.

"Ich heisst Andy"

error: incorrect conjugation in word 2, suggested method heisse

Now that would be great.
