why exactly did you choose my post to reply to. while i didn't make
star trek references or punctuate nearly all of my sentences with
ellipsis, i did make the point that there are loads of languages to
choose from and they exist in various families.
learning one opens up a whole area of computer languages and even if
you never use the language you learned, chances are the concepts are
transferrable to dozens if not hundreds of other languages.
so if you don't mind, please leave me out of your little rant.
