As of yesterday, I'm now a quarter-century old. Makes a guy think.

The major advantage of being twenty-five is that apparently I'm a "more responsible driver", or some such nonsense ... so when I go back to Boston next week (don't ask) I'll be able to rent a car without the extra US$25/day "we hate you" fee. My employer will be thrilled.

Show me your code and conceal your data structures, and I shall
continue to be mystified. Show me your data structures, and I won't
usually need your code; it'll be obvious.
