Nice things are better then ugly and long ones

Yesterday I was at a very delightful task. I rewrote a Java program to python. I'm rather pleased with the outcome. I replaced 977 lines of Java with 116 of Python. The Python version is more Robust and it runs about twenty times as fast.

On a sidenote, I wrote the python programm faster then the guys at software-installation-department could install a JDK on my machine.

Trough the new programm, I noticed a few data errors, that went by unnoticed before because of inherent flaws of the previous implementation.
