C's fun but it feels like hard work these days. I'm quite enjoying  
ObjC - but that might just be because it's C + classes and it's not C+ 
+. I was looking at some of my old ARM26 code the other night and  
marvelling at what a beautiful processor that is. So elegant it  
immediately makes you wonder how every other processor design has  
ended up so clunky.

But funnily enough I'd say my main recreational language is Perl. If  
only it had continuations /now/... Or coroutines.
