tools, brains, computers

zoooom!

I love how fast I can prototype in Perl when I'm focused.

I am aware, though, that the result may be some very slow code. I wish I knew a little more about databases because I feel like a lot of my work is just finding clever ways to keep stuff out of RAM while processing. But I'm on a deadline and I think I'll hack it with Storable and explicit freeze and thaw ops.

at some point, I may actually sit down here and write up what I'm up to for this machine translation task.
