Curious coding and more.

week6_update

As you can probably see this website has changed a fair bit. That is good as that was the goal of last week. Improve the site enough so I didn’t worry about it for some time. I didn’t put that hours into the breakclone this week.

Talk about laziness and good programming practice to practically any programmer and they will understand what you mean. It is certain not goofing off and making paper airplanes. I won’t bother to explain what it is as chances are you are a programmer or at least tech savvy if you are reading this. Read more →
