hmmr..  so let be sure on this-- you've moved *away* from these 3?  And here 
I've just taken a half-assed plunge into an online MIT course, "Introduction to 
Computer Science and Programming Using Python" ..  (was a little distressed 
when Big Brother's own product, Chrome, was at the top of suggested browsers.. 
and of course the forums are full of Winblows boneheads.)  Anyways, I do recall 
having read negative viewpoints on Python from purist coders' perspectives..  
would y'all suggest I just return to the K&R C of my school daze?  A Techdirt 
podcast was raving about how "node.js" is all the rage among startups.  Meh.
