    Hello everyone :)

    This is just a quick post to say hi

    My real name is Rich, I recently started learning programming to further my understanding of computers. I teach myself but hopefully in the future I will take my learning to some college, university or institution.

    I have a deep interest in Maths, particularly pure maths.

    I'm 28, working at a store in my City.

    Other than pc's programming and Maths I like to exercise, run and play piano. That's about it really.

    I hope to become active on these forums .

    That's pretty impressive. Do you get a vehicle to tow the piano along while you run?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    The Oxford Comma. Yes, it really is that important.

    There's a big difference between these two:

    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?

    ?

    I thought the video explained it perfectly.

    Edited: I forgot my part of the warm greetings, though! Some of us might occasionally get stuck on stuff that seems minor or even irrelevant, but we mean no harm; we really just wish to be useful. Sometimes that means not giving you the small push to get over a hump on the way, but trying to make you see a better path. It may not feel nice all the time, but it truly is intended to be most helpful to everyone in the long term.
