Advantages of the London lifestyle

I'm getting accustomed to carrying a technical book with me on my tube ride to and from work.

I've never been a speed reader, so it's good to have half an hour or so at each end of the day where there isn't much else that I can usefully be doing.

One of the books that I am currently reading is Refactoring To Patterns by Joshua Kerievsky. It's part of the Martin Fowler signature series.

Today I jumped ahead to read the Replace Conditional Dispatcher With Command section, as some code that I have been looking at recently could be a good candidate for this type of simplication. So far it looks like a more robust solution to what the original developers were trying to achieve, so I may add this to the maintenance roadmap.
