Comment: Python (Score 3, Informative) 426 426

Python is my scripting language of choice because it's easy to use and it has it's own "os" module that you can use to launch commands and the like, not to mention the "glob" module, which can grab all file names in a given directory into an array. I highly recommend it. (2.6)

what have you done that's so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?

What a complete asshole who thinks he's so much better than everyone else.

Heh, that quote reminds me of Dr. Breen from Half-Life 2:

Tell me, Dr. Freeman, if you can. You have destroyed so much. What is it, exactly, that you have created? Can you name even one thing? I thought not.

As someone who has it (and who's been professionally diagnosed), I can say that at times, it does feel like some sort of black art. While you guys develop decent social skills naturally, we have to really work at it, mainly through a lot of trial and error. Also note that careers that require a very high level of logical thinking tend to have more people with Aspergers than other careers (since, well, that's how our brains are wired, really)

I've use Steam, and not once have I ever had an issue with it. their download/DRM model works rather well and isn't nearly as bad as say, Ubisoft's. I mean, their whole business model is what has made the platform so successful in the first place, so I wouldn't worry about CIV V being on Steam.
