2% Genius

leave a comment »

Agile Tsar Dmitri Dolguikh pointed out Project Euler yesterday, which is a website containing a series of short programming problems. It reads a bit like bonus questions on a math exam, which is actually quite refreshing compared to the day-to-day problems at work. For added fun, I’m trying to run through the problems in Common Lisp.

So far I have completed 4 out of 179 problems, which makes me 2% genius, according to the site.

A delightful typo: Paintain

with one comment

While discussing a new software feature, I made the following typo:

17:56 <@jbowes> and then people would use it, and then we'd have to paintain it
17:56 <@jbowes> i meant to type maintain, but that word is awesome

I think paintain aptly describes what many of us do daily.
