Catching up with Tim Toady

I have known the programming mantra of “there is more than one way to do it” from the days of APL in the late 1960s and of course with Perl from the 1980s. However I have never seen it shortened to TIMTOWTDI much less pronounced Tim Toady!

Update: I just found a blog entry comparing programming languages to women, and discovered APL is “A fancy caterer specializing in Greek food”. Perl surprisingly is missing so can’t be very feminine.
