    Nerd of the day.

    i think we should recommend people for the nerd of the day award. i apply for writing my advanced chemistry/physics notes in javascript and for downloading 9 additional browsers onto one of my computers just for kicks. i look forward to other interesting anecdotes...

    I spent 7 months writing a Web Site on a subject im not even that interested in. When completed, it had a member service which allowed members to dynamically create and run their own forums, chatrooms, image galleries, file upload archives, and tonnes more. Members passwords were encryped in the database. Members could also customize each and every page, including colors, content, and styles.

    It also had a HUGE Content Management System which allowed me to completely change the layout and content without ever touching the source code. I wrote articles everyday which i uploaded and never showed to anybody.

    I also created a fully functional Online Store and checkout system which had all of ZERO products.

    Here is the best part. When i had completely finished the web site -- i deleted it! Every single file was deleted and forgot about. The only reason i did it was to learn more about the advantages and power of database programming.

    Hows that, sucka?

    Regards,
    Andrew Buntine.

    Yeah, I too am guilty of inserting programming into class notes. Happens mostly in math class when copying down equations and then writing comments about what to do. The ol' c++ forward-slash, forward-slash keeps creeping in before I write the extra info about an equation.

    Soon, we will be speaking completely in 'programming talk'.
    Code:
    if dinner equals "ready" then buntine.happy equals true
    
    if temperature.celcius is less than 30 then
      for i equals 0 to 1000000
         buntine.scream "DAMN"
    etc, etc, etc.

    Regards,

    What's that gibberish? Here's proper programming talk...

    Code:
    adam.happy = dinner=="ready";
    
    if (temperature.celsius < 30) for (i=0;i<=1000000;i++) adam.scream("DAMN");
    LOL.

    ouch. i do believe buntine just got TOLD

    more power to those of you that can program things worth doing. if i ever learned to program, i'd probably make some strange program that would give people epileptic seizures and make them want to grow plankton in their bathrooms.
