Life is a meaningless void of gibbering chaos whose soundtrack is the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes
I'm working on code in which a particular object's
property can be either a
datetime. One is not a
subclass of the other. No duck typing here: one
exposes the year through a
year() method; the other
year field. (This is Python, so it matters.)
It's reasonable to suppose I have fewer than 400,000 hours left in
my life, and I spent one of them finding that out.
Who knew HP's
source material was code?
