It just gets worse. The other day I found myself debating, over beers
in a pool hall in Santa Monica, the merits of Java over C++ with our
company's Win32 C++ guru :)

Incidentally, if anyone else on FoRK feels this way about Java and is
interested in coming to the hottest new startup in LA, let me know. :)
_All_ of our server side stuff is done in Java, because we decided we'd
rather spend 30% more money on hardware (if Java was slow) instead of
30% more time debugging memory and pointer errors.
