I think it's safe to say this guy was strongly influenced by the works of Salvador Dali.  (But I lurve Dali, so that's cool.)

regarding the sort algorithm page... I wish the source code would have better comments. I don't feel like parsing java after being in at work for something like 10 hours. Oh and the applet is a little red X.

I declare the sort page to be LOSAR in nature.

And I'm going home. Finally.

Regarding little-red-ecks-ness: Hey, don't bitch at ME because you disabled Java in your browser. =)

And I really wish the code was better commented too; and preferably with a refresher course on the concepts behind each of the algorithms. I haven't looked at that shit since Qsort was the fastest algorithm on the planet, back in the mid-eighties. =\

Javascript != Java, young padawan. You may not even have a JVM installed, much less Java applet permissions for sites outside the Trusted zone.

I have no idea if I do. I've never really seen the point of making a virtual machine on top of Mozilla or whatnot. Then again, I think straight C (if not straight assembly) is the best programming language out there, so what do I know.

Well, the point is largely automatic built-in cross-platform compatibility for your code, but I'm not really a Java fan either. Of course, that could have something to do with my lip-curled disdain for OOP in general...

ha, I think OOP is Satanic black magic. I like the imperative programming model, because it matches that of a CPU so perfectly!

Also, I think the vast majority of apps that need to be cross-platform-friendly could be done at least as efficiently (if not more so) as well as cross-platform-ly in Perl. ::juts chin out defiantly::

yes, perl is a good language too... though I tend not to write "applications" in it, as much as glorified filters.

hey, if you two are done blowing each other, you might want to notice that a) perl can't do a lot of the pimp stuff that java & javascript can when embedded in webapges (although it CAN do a lot more server-side stuff that java just fucking SUCKS at) and b) of all the OS's in the world, only *nixes come with perl pre-installed (or as part of the base install), whereas java is like fucking air with it's goddamned ubiquity.

my biggest beef with java is that my computar doesn't run it....it walks it.

On a completely unrealted note to the conversation above, I would like to announce that the first picture turns me on.

Thank you.
