Bloody Semicolons

Tim Bray, who is writing Ruby code for a comment-management system on his weblog:

The only downside is that I have to make a few adjustments to the current publishing engine, which is Perl, and to the client-side stuff, which is of course JavaScript. I keep putting : in front of constant strings. And forgetting parentheses. Especially empty parentheses. And semicolons. Especially semicolons. Bloody stupid useless semicolons.

Tim sounds like the ideal user for Links.

Oh, but Links has semicolons.
