My main occupation is to debug cruft I write in my free time.

That is, after struggling to stay alive.

I dislike your sentence "Russia invaded Georgia". Time to ask a question? :-)

comment Why did Austronesian/Polynesian people not colonize Australia?
Thanks a lot, this is really an interesting answer. I will wait a bit more but if nobody comes up with a better one, I will definitely chose yours as the most appropriate. Can you add your last comment to the answer?

comment Why did Austronesian/Polynesian people not colonize Australia?
