I must say I get more of a kick out of the humours of different cultures than I do out of the OO cultureclub's mixconception that any data model is possible if enough elaborate terminology is wrapped around some language or other. I never saw anything done in C++ that couldn't have been done in C. It seems particularly North American to cover up engine internals, whether computer or automotive, with a lot of window dressing. Cimode may remember Jacques Tati, a film comic very famous in France. An old (Brit) friend of mine was a fan of his and once dragged me to an art house retrospective of Tati's films. The place was full of earnest cinema students who took notes as they watched, as silently as could be. Tati wasn't my cup of tea and I was quiet at first but my friend was guffawing loudly and incessantly as soon as the lights went down. The kids were there to study, not to laugh and were most annoyed, glaring towards my pal and shsshing him. This got me to laughing out loud which made those students very angry. So I enjoyed the evening but, I was told, for completely wrong and illegitimate reasons. Received on Mon Mar 03 2008 - 17:17:57 CET
