Bah!  
I so need to code more. I'm SOOOOOO rusty. It didn't help any that it was python, but still. Bleh. I need a little coding puzzles community or something. Daily coding exercise. A new feature to clyde every day! Ok, maybe not.

I used to run a competition for just that purpose on littlegreenmen.

If there's enough interested parties, I'd be happy to resume it. I'm fairly certain relsqui would be interested.

What languages do you know anyhow?

Re:
Ooo a contest would be cool. I think that the time I did the most for keeping my perl skills in shape was when I was doing weekly puzzles (some of them are relaly lame, just to warn you.) Games and contests, little bites, are just what I need to make me code things up.

I know perl, java, C, Scheme (a lisp varient) and I've touched bash, python, c++ and a smattering of other things. I'm really rustly in everything but perl, and even that I'm slipping on.

Re:
In that case, I do believe I'll round up the troops. ; )

Lots of interpreted languages, I see. Any particular reason?

Re:
Some of my history is high level sysadmining, which required a lot of scripting. Perl has also just been my tool of joice for little stupid things.

Java was just the new hot thing that people wanted, so when I switched to programing that was the place to go. (I know java isn't strickly inturrpreted, but...)

Other than that, no reason, and I'm game to learn whatever.

I did take a complier course in college, so it's not like I'm scared of them or anything. Even if that course didn't go all that well. :)

Re:
*nods* Seems about right.

Yeah, java sort of sinks below "interpreted" in my book. Everything about it is stacked against any vague idea of efficiency. For a _very_ long time, I adamantly refused to build java on my system.

I know the feeling about compiler courses. I took compilers twice (although that was on principle, not grades).

I was playing with the idea of introducing a language and providing a project in it. I took it upon myself to learn _way_ too many languages and that was even before I took comparative languages ; ) I found a great book on 12 languages in my CC's library one day.

Really, that was how I found my love of Forth.

Speaking of hot...that userpic...FREEOWW!!!! (Again, you had to be there)

*blush* Hey, don't make relsqui mad with me.

Re:
I was thinking it too, actually, I just didn't say anything. ;) So he won't be getting in trouble from me.

Re:
Oh, she'd understand.

Besides, I'd go out of my way to quote the Hitchhiker's Guide at a pretty userpic ; )

Re:
Ah, my hitchhiker's guide is too rusty to have reconized the quote.

Re:
Judiciary Pag (the guy who decided that Krikkit should be encased in an envelope of Slo-Time) says it periodically in reference to someone touching his crotch. _Usually_ a member of the opposite sex, but in one case, when he scratched his crotch.

It's worth noting that case came before he dreamt up the "brilliant" fate of the Planet Krikkit and that before the applause had died down, he had slipped away to the SenseShower with an attractive member of the jury.

I wonder. If things had gone according to plan, would the restaurant at the end of the universe been assaulted by the Krikkiteers?
