Sounds like you've got the experience, now just got to find that pesky
state-of-the-art language. :-0
You'll find that REBOL ranks right up there in terms of rapid development /
high productivity. But like all languages, it has its strengths and
weaknesses for different types of projects. I love the small size,
relatively rapid execution speed (for a scripted language), and rapid
development for quick projects. I miss massive library support offered in
so many other languages, but REBOL is still fairly young.

Great forum in which to ask. This is a very helpful list.
> I definitely have a sense of humor ...
Usually always appreciated. The multinational nature of this list means
that subtle humor will usually miss at least a part of the audience; hence,
the list tends to use more than the usually amounts of humor-alert
notifications so as to not confuse or offend. This list is also remarkable
for its absence of flames. High signal to noise ratio, especially after
they filter my name out. :-)
Welcome to the list. Your broad background will be a huge asset for the
list, in my opinion.
