  1. I know precisely what he meant because migrating between different programming languages/operating environments can and does engender very similar feelings. You;re a half-wit on the new language of course, but there is a kind of bleed-through into the older skills which can also make one fel kike a half-wit.

    To my mind perhaps the most impressive literary feat of all time was that of Joseph Conrad, who was born in Poland, emigrated to the UK as a young man, and wound up writing great imperishable fiction in a language he learned as an adult.
