[Q] Squeak and...

I split my time between Squeak and Dolphin. I use Dolphin when I want to do 
Microsoft client stuff and use Squeak for experiments and server-side. 
Dolphin has been great for me in playing with COM and other Microsoft 
technologies. I can learn so much from a Smalltalk image. I find working in 
any smalltalk implementation is better than what I do at work (don't 
ask...hint: it ain't smalltalk). Anymore, Smalltalk is a fantasy of being 
super productive. The things I accomplish in 2 hours of smalltalk equal what 
I can do in one day at work. It's frustrating...=)

Whoever made the quote about Smalltalk being a drug was right! I just dream 
of the day that I can work in Smalltalk ALL OF THE TIME...=) I'm trying to 
work toward that goal...The only way to get Smalltalk back is for us to 
create the opportunities!
