Hmm. Well, I got swamped for a few days, and then I almost died from boredom
from the night-of-the-living-dead-object-church thread. I was sooooo close
to starting a discussion on one of the following:

1. Is it ever acceptable to use GOTO in a program; or
2. Is it better to have domain specific languages (FORTRAN v. COBOL) or
a single unified language (PL/1); or
3. Will the shift from Batch to Timesharing produce sloppier
programmers; or
4. Will semiconductor memory ever drop in price sufficiently to
displace core, and if so, when?

I'm really pretty bummed about Tim's leaving. After all, Tim and I played
off each other well (as the FAQ noted).

In fact, I'm just plain pretty bummed out.

If Tim really isn't going to come back, then I think I'll have to become the
new bouncer.

P.S. You quoting Pink Floyd song titles? Or am I just stretching too hard,
looking for interconnectedness of things?
