    I'm surprised that none of phantomotap's emoticons are part of his vocabulary. I see them all the time.

    The most embarrassing thing about this for me is that it exposes who I talk to the most, and I see it as a complex love diagram.

    I like how finals week in december is the busiest day of the year. Will these kids never learn to do their homework ahead of time?

    Toward the end of the page in the section "Individual Statistics"... Looks like Adak is either awake 24/7 or has a very inconsistent sleeping schedule -- other users all have clear periods where they don't post during sleepy time.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Intriguing indeed (and a bit worrying...)

    Will they ever learn to indent? It is (practically) the most popular URL apparently. Following up is the ones about homework policy.

    It appears Adak has passed the Turing test
    I never suspected he was actually a program.

    I'm not convinced; he's perfectly human and sleeps in class only.

    I wonder how it works.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Was my first thought too. Went to take a look.
    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.

    ^_^;

    Too many to reasonably list.

    Anyway, is anyone surprised that Salem has the high score?

    I was. I would have thought laserlight.

    I'm kinda surprised that lmgtfy.com didn't make the top url domains.

    I've learned I seem to be paired up with iMalc, laserlight, and Salem, and that I sometimes misspell "modulus" <grin>
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    It seems to be smart enough to filter out some helper sites (also to remove the General discussion boards from the stats) and go instead for the essential.

    Good Stats = Good Information => Good Knowledge
