    Aww, bohoo, I thought I could get away with it Let's just pretend I don't know how to spell it correctly!
    OK on a serious note, I understand. I will use "latter" on this forum next time

    I was wondering if English was your mother tongue.
    I'll give you a hint: it isn't! I just write english extremely well. And the dictionary helps with some complex words that I can't spell 100% right, but I'm trying to learn!

    I used to spell parallel as parallell for ages (knowingly but with no malintent), because I thought it was more poetic and looked more like what it means. Then I realised I can't take the law into my own hands.
    Is the wiki still up? It en't loading for me.

    It's up. It's just experiencing some problems with the current server.

    Not yet, sorry. Just load it three or four times, and you should get something . . . .

    Actually, I think it's cured for the moment. It seems to be working for me now.

    I knew someone was going to say something like that.

    cpwiki.theprogrammingsite.com would be such a long name, but I guess it would be better than not loading at all.

    He's just disgruntled because the best thing irish ever invented was a soluble life-raft.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Nah. It was Boolean algebra. You know about that, right? There should probably be a section in the wiki about George.

    Ah. I actually didn't know that.

    But it makes sense. After all there ought to be something even worst than soluble life-rafts *ducks*

    Trust a man from Portuguese programmer to not know the benefit of 1's and 0's in today's society!

    Hehe, so right.
    If we only understood the fine principles of material implication, we wouldn't be the economical laughing stock of Europe.

    Meanwhile...

    I really think sooner or later they will fix it as they have in the past. I'm not sure there is a need for it to move really.

    And what about the security problems? I'm told they are severe . . . .

    Anyway, I probably won't be able to set it up for a while so we can wait and see how sourceforge handles things . . . .

    I'm just giving heads up that I aired a buffer overrun article. Have a look if you want.
    And btw, sourceforge is still slow after all this time. I don't think it's going to improve.
