Plus you might lose a few if your posts or any of the threads you have posted in is deleted or goes to The Jail.

With other words: The mods and admins steal the beans?

19 more, I could get that in a few minutes when I am busy.

I have gotten more than 100 on a single day before, but that is when I stayed up all night on the computer.

See...LaRoza and the other moderators are taking your beans and selling them off for COLD HARD CASH!

But, don't forget the small amount they set aside for their daily coffee.

I don't have to take that fresh stuff.

(I never had coffee before actually)

Within six hours, I have 100 more beans. Not a record, I didn't sleep.

(Don't think I was up all night on the forum, I was also doing a bit of programming)

You most definitely need a life outside the realm of computers, LaRoza... Take the advice, it burns you out over the course of time. I have been through this myself. :-)

Don't worry, once I get a job, I will level out. For now, I am doing the things I wanted to do that I couldn't when I was in school.

I think I have to get a little sleep, it has been 26 hours since I woke up. My code is completely devoid of comments, and has weird data structures, a bad sign.

I want to continue to work on it, but I know from experience that such code is useless to me when I come back to it.

I guess I will go to sleep for a little while, and dream in code. (Really, I do. I have fixed most bugs while sleeping on them)

Now this gives an interesting correlation. (It's my correlation day, it appears).


You make all your bugs while awake
You fix most bugs while asleep
Therefore, you ought to sleep more.

Sweet dreams.

Or create less bugs while awake. :-)

In order to do that, you have to write less code. The ratio of code to bugs appears to remain constant for most people.

Assuming that bugs are normally distributed and LaRoza is better than average, he needs to sleep less than most people. :-) But that's a rather academic view. Too many assumptions.

That is true. I write the best code the second or third time. I am too tired to really research that, but I think there is a famous statement or theory for that, because it applies to all programmers.

The first time around is never the final, and I know it.

Third time lucky? (http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/third-time-lucky.html) I just looked that up, and what I find rather - er - strange is that it refers to John Babbacombe Lee. I just finished listening to part of an album with that name. The phrase 'third time lucky' does not appear anywhere within its lyrics, I am quite sure.

I am writing it in PHP and ECMAScript.

I scratched the original code, and will redo it later.

(It is web based)

No, it is specific to programming. I think it is in a book, don't remember which.

My mind is freeing all of the allocated memory...must sleep....



#include <laroza.h>

int main(int args,char ** argv)

double * larozaMentalCapacity = (double*)malloc(sizeof(laroza.brain));
int i = 0;

POSSIBLE--;

It is nothing big, and just a small thing to pass time.

I don't know if it will be useful for anyone.

Btw, who thinks also Linux is sponsored by the coffee industry? I mean there is a direct connection between coffee consumption and time spent on Linux. So in order to sell more coffee, they need more linux users. Right?

Are you only programming in PHP ? (what i mean is which languages are you able to program in?)

I am able to program in a lot of languages, see my site. I have studied them all, but I don't know them equally.

I am using XHTML, CSS, ECMAScript, PHP and probably Python for this. (I usually write programs to write programs for me to save time, that is what the Python will do)

It is just an online test/quiz/questionaire for what language to learn for people wanting to learn a programming language.

I think I know that. I was just pulling your leg. I can't recall which book, either. It's quite possible that my comment was prompted by 'egoless programming' (Weinberg), but the bit about the constant ratio must have been from somewhere else. 'The Mythical Man-Month' comes to mind, as well.

You are writing a program which will write a program which will advise people on what language to learn?

Too tired to tell, you could tell me that Python uses braces and I would believe it at this point.

Yes. It isn't going to give a "Learn <language>" answer, but give useful information based on the users needs.

I forsee it giving a ranch of languages and ranking them.
