Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Yeah, but
I was under the impression you didn't consider yourself a programmer.

So any code switch is to be taken with a lot of questions. Which I don't feel like asking, so I'll drop it.
New No, it's fine. I don't consider myself a programmer.
I switched because the occasional, sporadic nature of that sort of work meant that I often had to get back up to speed with a bit of code with as little difficulty as possible, in as short a timeframe as possible.

I was better at writing Perl than I was at Python, but I could read Python code after the fact better than I could Perl.

I could probably have circumvented it by commenting my Perl properly, and using the long version of the inbuilt operators, but hey. That'd have been too easy.

I did find Python's regex stuff nicer to use than Perl's, though. Which is not what I expected at all.

Gill was also down on his luck. Fact was, he was barely keeping his head below water.
