.NET & C#

weather: drizzling
outside: 9°C
mood: concerned
I'm writing from my Mac again. Not that that makes my entries more exciting... in fact, it's still as random and boring as it usually is. =S

I'm installing Visual Studio .NET on my P3. "This may take a minute or two" says Microsoft. *snark* It's an hour and a half according to everyone else who's installed it. So, yeah, I'm doing .NET/C# work now. I really don't know how much I'll get done before the end of this week. It should be cool.

I'm always inwardly freaking when I'm starting something I've never done before. And this is exactly the stupid, baseless fear that kept me from working with Perl earlier. It really shouldn't be that bad. I mean, it looks very familiar and works very familiar (in that Java/C++ way) when I was looking at it with the Kinda-Boss-ish-Like Person in his office.

I just realized this morning that I won't be seeing my Kinda-Boss-ish-Like Person for a loooong while. Our holidays overlap such that I won't be seeing him for over a month.

I'm installing Visual Studio .NET

I'd be curious to hear what you think of it once you get a chance to play with it. :) I've read some docs but haven't done any coding with it.

I think I'll be happy if it doesn't eat my machine alive... =}

.NET isn't that bad. VB's newest version is VERY much like Java/C++ in the sense that everything is an object. Inheritance, polymorphism, interfaces - you can do all of that now (you couldn't back in VB 6.0). Even error handling's done using Try/Catch blocks now.

A friend of mine put it best: They took the best of Java/C++ and Visual Basic 6.0, and created VB.NET

I imagine I will like it once I figure out how to do stuff =)

VB.Net sounds nice from what I've heard about it.

Perl scares the living shit out of me. Just looking at it gives me a nosebleed.

Hehehe, Perl is fantastic. I didn't get to play with Perl 6.0 though.

Perl 6.0
Did you mean Perl 5.6.0 or Perl 6.0?

Perl 6.0 doesn't exist yet. The language spec is in the middle of being done, and the underlying machine (Parrot) is currently being developed (and showing signs of being significantly useful before Perl 6.0 is completely specced out).

Or did I miss something?

Re: Perl 6.0
Which one is "the Object Oriented Perl"? I thought it was Perl 6.0 and I thought it was further along than that...

I just overheard a conversation somewhere and didn't think much about it, so I could be talking out my ass.

Re: Perl 6.0
I'm not positive, but I think that support for object orientation came in with Perl 5.0, along with packages and a bunch of other things.

But I'm not sure whether that is what was meant with "The Object Oriented Perl"; it's not OO in the sense that, say, Java or Smalltalk or even Python or Ruby are. It supports OO, but it's not built into the language to such a great extent and the internals are (or can be) more visible.

Re: Perl 6.0
Ah, okay that explains a lot.

*Gasp* You're new layout is great! I hadn't been expecting any changes and I was surfing people's LiveJournals and... WOW!. Nicely done.
Dec. 11th, 2002 09:15 am (UTC)
Thanks =)

I didn't think there was any point announcing it b/c everyone reads from their own Friends View anyway.

I may do some other ones space/bandwidth allowing. This Amy girl is _good_.

Well it looks very nice! Do you know how much bandwidth LJ allows? I'm guessing most of what you did requires a paid account to accomplish. Man, I wish I'd taken more advantage of the 2 month account that katie_ah bought me.

Do you know how much bandwidth LJ allows?

None. LJ doesn't provide space for images (not even for the Paid Account members) except for the user icons (and even then, there's a limit).

I'm talking about bandwidth that comes with my web hosting package that I've paid for separately. This is where the zhongwen and weddingplans community layouts are being hosted from.

I don't think I'd ever be able to put together such layouts.
