What can be better than pods? Why more pods, of course!
I wrote the code-segment in an email message to a friend. Then thinking about it, it seemed like that would be the programming language the pod creatures would use.
Of course, I could come up with a big rant on software complexity, excessive layering and abstraction, the reliance on tools that redirect and misdirect the focus of programmers' attention to different aspects of a project, and the software-as-plumbing rather than software-as-a-design approach, but I think calling it the jpod language is sufficent.

Addendum: When I use the term "jpod" I'm not referring to a book, TV series, or religiously-focused roommate finder. Sheesh!

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
