Re: Anyone program in Python?

lowstudent,

I just started getting the bug again, went looking for my old copy of C++ but so far have only found my VB, so I might use that.

Re: Anyone program in Python?

MetalDecathlete,

I never learned C. When I was in college at UNT, they adopted Pascal as their base language to teach and use.

Re: The Crushing Reality of Mathematics

ascenzm,

One is the fact that you can only tax people so much before they revolt.

That's not quite true. The people revolt when the tax they think they're paying gets too high. As long as they have no idea how much [more]
