It's all connected

burningbird's Programming Languages parable,
about a Paul "Peekabooty" B. becoming a Python convert,
and about part of the Vancouver geek scene.
(Brief mention of Brad Templeton, whom I met probably
around ten years ago.)
At work lately,
I've been converting my Python program to C.
Somewhat painful, but the conversion is close to complete.
I'm sure glad I had the Python prototype to work out the details,
get the hardware & doc folks to finish the documentation,
and get the real story about how the hardware works.
Would have been a major pain to have had to work that stuff
out in C.
