from one of my students. *ahhhhh*

--
It was a cool Tuesday evening in Brisbane - not by New Zealand
standards, but cold enough that there was no need for air-conditioning
at Hapkido. After a particularly informative Hapkido class, with an
ever increasing number of students, I left quickly (still in uniform) to
go pick up my wife. (and I have become bored of regaling about here...)

There are a couple of martial arts halls beside where I pick my wife up
so I decided to have a bit of a look at what one was doing while I
waited. I think it was some sort of kung-fu, but not entirely sure.

The instructor saw me and invited me it to see what they do in class.
He asked if I would like to join in for a bit, and I said that would be
good but I have to take it a bit easy as I have lung issues. He went
and got what seemed to be one of his senior students and told him to
show me what they do.

The next thing I know, punches were flying at my head. I managed to not
get hit but from the roundhouse punch I blocked along the side of my
head, they were not being pulled.

I stepped back a bit and looked at the instructor to see what was going
on and saw him nod at the student to continue. So the next punch I
parried while stepping to the side and followed up with an elbow to the
nose. The guy crumpled on the ground, so I turned and bowed to the
instructor and walked out.

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
