@catoutofbed I once read a book where a programmer got sucked into a fantasy world and he learned that magic and coding were similar, so he became a powerful wizard. :D
@Lyrilith @catoutofbed Would that be The Land of Lisp?
@mike @catoutofbed I'm not sure.. The book contained volume 1 and 2, as far as I recall, and was called "The Wiz Biz".
@Lyrilith @catoutofbed @mike there's also the WebMage books, which were pretty fun.
