  • Io — Day Two

    Wow. Day two messed with my head. I woke up a bit tired this morning to have a crack at it and got really baffled by how to make a fibonacci sequence. Just drew a total blank. So, I dug out some old c code I had and copied that into io. Which is sort of cheating, but got me going and also helped

  • Review — Savanna Dry South African Cider

    My continuing cider odyssey went in a most peculiar direction with my first crack at a South African cider. I had no idea that such a thing even existed and felt a little bad for incurring all those food miles. So my hopes were high as I settled down

  • Ruby — Day Three

    The last day is definitely the most fun. We get to play with metaprogramming with one bigger question, of which more shortly. My reflections on Ruby were it was cool to catch up with the language. I’d sort of forgotten quite how nifty it was to play with. For my money its more Perlish than th
