If you have a (real) degree in CS and you're doing web development, you're probably shortchanging yourself.

Right, because anyone doing ruby must be doing web development ?

If you're not, Ruby and Python are very similar languages (I find Ruby harder to read so I prefer Python)

Thank you for demonstrating my point

but Python has MUCH better scientifically oriented libraries.

If you care for those. The world is bigger than that. Are you a scientist ?

But way to demonstrate the GP's point.

It's all in the eye of the beholder.

Because real web developers use Python not PHP (it's for retards) and not ruby (it's for 'rockstar' douche bag 'developers').

When it comes to sophistication: PHP < Python < Ruby

If you're doing Python you haven't been around long enough to appreciate the differences from Ruby.

If you have a degree in CS and are doing Python by choice you're shortchanging yourself.

Actually, nature doesn't make mistakes. It just does stuff. Some of the stuff works, some of it doesn't. The stuff that works we consider "evolved." The stuff that doesn't we consider "politicians".

But clearly politicians are having more sex than the rest of us so they will pass their genes.

Could you tell us how it is "horribly badly misconceived and misdesigned"? Just saying does not make is so.

Well it should have been an IPV4 extension that lets IPv4 and IPv6 intercommunicate so people can move when they are ready.

Instead it's just another protocol with bad interoperability between V4 and V6. If I'm a V6 client I can't talk to a V4 server without some ugly "help". So how do they expect to move every one to V6 if it can't be done gradually ?

Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
