Yeah, I stopped liking C++ too. It seems like every time I wanted to do 
something new, C++ kept throwing stumbling blocks at me. Contrast that with 
Lua, where if you can conceive it you can pretty much do it, as far as the 
core language is concerned.

I was never very good at C++ anyway, although one C++ program I wrote managed 
to handle $0.5Billion/year in timesheets for 6 years. But between you and me, 
that code really sucked -- I'm lucky it ran well. :-)
