DSL or API?

Consider this post to have the second function of a "pulse post", a post that proves the blog isn't dead yet. I could trot out numerous unconvincing excuses for my neglect, but I think I have the ultimate one: I haven't had anything sufficiently interesting, both to me to motivate the writing and, I daresay, to readers to motivate the reading.

Moving along...this ten question checklist for distinguishing a DSL from an API made me chuckle repeatedly. Is "DSL" a byword I missed? Hey, if Rails proponents can post "Hi, I'm Ruby on Rails" clips (spoofing the way Java development was done a few years ago), I think this is fair game.
