What's the website again? I lost it and can't seem to remember the name. Need to read some of her stuff on binary trees.

TIA

So hard to find Prelude's profile and look at the Homepage?
Home Page:
http://www.eternallyconfuzzled.com

On the second thought, probably you just wanted once again to promote the great site ;)

Probably because people who feel Forever Confused will feel at home? :D

No, I mean so they will feel more comfortable at her site, rather than somewhere else.

Personally, I see the title as a place for those who are confused about C++. It's perfect for me.

Meanwhile, Prelude did explain the title on her first installment of the website, if I remember correctly. But it just wasn't as good as my version.

No, I think he means the main page, as in the home page which contains a nice explanation of what "confuzzlement" is.
Eternally Confuzzled

So what's this confuzzled stuff anyway? Confuzzlement is a glorious state of being that involves a lot of confusion, frustration, and maybe a little bit of raving lunacy. In a good way, of course. Confuzzled people celebrate their ignorance openly and strive to reach a higher level of ignorance by learning from other confuzzled people. A confuzzled person is proud to be ignorant, but the unwashed masses are often incapable of seeing the subtle difference between being brilliantly clever, pretending to be stupid because you can't be bothered to think, and being genuinely stupid. They key to being confuzzled is having fun with it.

Those that become enlightened on the path of confuzzlement reach the orgasmic state of eternally confuzzled where people marvel at your ability to cause a stunned silence like with the mere utterance of a few simple words. The eternally confuzzled are gods in their own minds and feel compelled to share their knowledge with the lesser beings around them. This can be a good thing because confuzzled people aren't really stupid, they just seem that way to the layman.

It's easy to become confuzzled. Just start learning and don't worry about not knowing something. Everybody doesn't know something. Too mapy people let it get to them and they get frustrated. Stress gives you health problems and people who get flustered easily tend not to make it as programmers. You don't want to be one of those people. You want to be eternally confuzzled!

Join the crazy side...we have cookies.

From the twisted minds of Julienne Walker and The EC Team

The basic idea being that regardless of how much you strive for unlimited knowledge there will always be something that you don't understand and rather than being consistently frustrated by this fact, it's better to accept it and admit that nobody is all-knowing and it's fine to confused sometimes. Additionally, I'd like to note that the cookies on the crazy side are not that good and they're frequently out of them claiming that "they're making more" and "they'll be out soon."

maybe that's what Prelude is confuzzled about.. how to schedule the cookie making right ;)

It's wonderful how confused everyone is.
