    +1: Some good ideas in the article that have their application in other languages besides Python.
    One of my early programming efforts (30 years ago, ouch! At school, before computers in school were as common as they are today) would have benefitted from some of the tips presented so far....

    I might wander off and contemplate this challenge, it will be good to brush up on my programming skills, which have become a little rusty lately from lack of use.

    (Thinks quietly to self: a couple of Pascal books are on the table beside me....might be interesting.....better give the newer programmers a chance first though)

    As long as it does what it says, you can follow a different format.

    Re: [Beginner] Programming Challenge: 2

    I have a quick question. When will this challenge be judged (final day for submissions?)
    I can probably whip something up in a couple days, but I'm kinda busy.
    So for C programmers, if a user enters a name longer than 20, it should be truncated? Or should there be an error message? And should there be a error message if a user tries to input a ridiculously long name in the input field?
    Also, is there a max age?
    Cool contest,
    Rich

    I'm starting to love these challenges.
    I'll whip something up and post back here.

    Re: [Beginner] Programming Challenge: 2

    how are we supposed to know if the username is valid? or do you just mean a valid age eg. not 500?

    jimi: Well, there's no point for one. And since it's Visual C, the judge probably wouldn't want it any more anti-Linux with Windows GUI.

    One question, a user name can't be a number right? (e.x. 1337).

    Are there any restrictions as to what characters are allowed in the username?
    Posting code? Use the [code] or [php] tags.
    I don't care, I'm still free. You can't take the sky from me.
