Re: Careful with that hedge trimmer...
In Australia, Wasps are the least of your problems. Bitten in your gentleman's area by one of their spiders would be a nasty way to go.

I hope my own personal efforts have contributed to this in some small way. Why? Well, because whenever I'm asked 'My lad/lass is interested in programmng, what language should they learn first?', I always answer : 'Python. It'll teach them good indenting habits.'
So far as I'm concerned, being a good n00b language is nothing to be ashamed of. I cut my teeth on PHP, but I wish it'd been Python.
I'm going in the opposite direction. I started out as a Windows-only teenager. Then moved to linux, and loved the simple UI of the Ubuntus (Unity was a jump, but I learned at least to tolerate it).
But the older I get, the more I like the CLI. I think it's because I have more demands on my time. So when I want to do something on my computer, I want to do PRECISELY that thing, right-the-heck-now. I don't want to be suggested at or wizarded.
I'm 32 and I don't have a house, still less a lawn, but if I did I'd be telling you damn kids to get off it. Fortunately, I live in the North, so there are always clouds to shout at.
