And since I'm sort of in a blogging frame of mind, I'll mention why there's been no update here for the past week and a bit: I was skiing. I spent a whole week in Tignes (French Alps) learning to ski and didn't break anything - obviously I was being over-cautious. I did however lose my glasses on the slope on the second day, so since then (up until about five minutes ago, when a replacement pair turned up from the optician) have been walking around wearing sunglasses all the time - my only spare pair are tinted.
I'd do a comparison between skiing and skating, but really it'd be like trying to compare CL with Scheme, and I just spent all day telling people on IRC not to do that. (Memo to employers: not all day, really. Just the idle bits during slow cvs operations). But I think it's fair to say that if you like one, the other might well also appeal.
