I love arguement too, but I am spent, as I have spent the last two days hiking with three people who have never gone hiking before, and ended up hauling a 30 kilo pack. Pain.

You seem to have misunderstood what I said. And that post had no bearing on anything I said. Also programming is, or was when I learned it, defined as controling (in any way) the behaviour of a machine. But these are all simply disputes over the English language, which I would argue is a high level ...

Quote: from Paperback Writer on 3:02 am on Aug. 20, 2003[br]But if turing complete only means it can be interpreted into a turing machine sequence, then every sequence of data in any format be turing complete. Machine code in our modern computers is binary; the fact that it is just a number format ...

Sean Connery was the best. Game systems are game systems; whatever you like; I personally like whichever the largest group of my friends are playing at the moment. Go GIT. I love you guys. Stop the violence. back to jokes: When Bill and Hillary first got married, Bill said, "I am putting a box ...

I love the United States. But damn if our government does not need some work. They go off the deep end over next to nothing and let white collar arses get away with near anything. McDonald's is the worst mockery of a 'food' vender this world has ever seen. Half the wonder of this country is that the...

Any language (Pascal, Java, HTML, English, Chinese, etc.) is merely a data format. The idea of a language is a common data format to enable people or machines to exchange data in a meaningful interpritable manner. No language (save binary) is turing complete; a compiler translates a language into a ...

As a clarification, a markup language is a programming language, as scripting is a form of programming. Also, '==' and '!=' are comparitives not statements of fact; my response to "HTML != programming" is therefore 'false', but to "HTML == Scripting" is 'true'. A markup language ...

You were trying to say "not defined as" not use a caomparative. You also cannot effectively mix math and computer science; while people mistakingly couple them, the two are vastly different. You wanted "?", not "!=". By "Adriac == 1337", you are nither saying ...

He says it himself- "abandonware" != "freeware". Microsoft doesn't support it any more, but it's no more legal to steal it. Just to be an arse, "!=" is a comparitive, not a startement of fact. Also, abandonware is not technically legal until the copyright has expired; ...
