Re: a programming forum?
Computer science is comprised of so many different things, you aren't going to find a name that describes them all. Algorithm analysis, theory of computation, AI, system design, sever client relationships, integrated networks, HCI, database programming, etc etc. That is of course, other than computer science. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #28 20070725 04:23:49
Re: a programming forum?
then maybe we should just call it Computer Science? A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #29 20070725 07:19:40
Re: a programming forum?But when I am programming a jigsaw game, the term "Computer Science" doesn't seem quite right ... "Coding" is what I am doing. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #30 20070725 07:57:06
Re: a programming forum?Well if you feel programming a jigsaw does not qualify as "computer science" (which i guess i'd agree with) then we need to define what the forum will contain before we can come up with a suitible name. (since the original suggestion was in fact a computer science forum, which ricky approved) A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #31 20070725 08:05:05
Re: a programming forum?But so far I like the feel of "Coding", and I think most people would know what it means. Example: Google's "Summer of Code" http://code.google.com/soc/2007/ "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #32 20070725 09:16:38
Re: a programming forum?Computer science is to coding as mathematics is to accounting. Coding involves computer science, but you aren't studying computer science when you code. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #33 20070725 14:25:21
Re: a programming forum?yeah but thats completely unintuitive. Last edited by mikau (20070725 14:27:05) A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #34 20070725 14:52:51
Re: a programming forum?It took us a while to get "Euler Avenue", but that name really works, for one thing it selfselects its audience! "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #35 20070726 02:40:00
Re: a programming forum?Binary Magic! A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #36 20070726 07:30:46
Re: a programming forum?Heading in the right direction, I think. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #37 20070726 11:16:36
Re: a programming forum?Silicon Highway? A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #38 20070726 12:12:52
Re: a programming forum?how about.. A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #39 20070726 17:09:38
Re: a programming forum?How about just "Code Zone", and we can mention algorithms in the description. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #40 20070727 01:11:09
Re: a programming forum?Can you some day down the road figure out how to have igloo myrtilles fourmis #41 20070727 04:05:57
Re: a programming forum?
code zone sounds good to me! I vote yes. A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #42 20070727 07:24:42
Re: a programming forum?"Code Zone" anyone else? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #43 20070727 08:18:15
Re: a programming forum?I personally like Silicon Highway, but Code Zone is good too. Either one really. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #44 20070727 10:17:07
Re: a programming forum?Or maybe "Graphene Highway": http://www.physorg.com/news104473084.html "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #45 20070727 10:18:38
Re: a programming forum?Frankly I'd rather get the forum started than keep debating names, but i also like Silicon Highway better than Code Zone. A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #46 20070727 11:42:46
Re: a programming forum?Hmm, I actually like my suggestion, Coder's Corner, better than either of the two. Coder's Corner gets my vote. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #47 20070727 13:32:37
Re: a programming forum?Aye, lets go with Coders corner. A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #48 20070727 14:41:17
Re: a programming forum?"The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #49 20070728 19:37:33
Re: a programming forum?On the topic of moving/deleting forums, it's most likely just me, but I feel the 'Jokes' forum doesn't fit in with the other forums. It's not like we have a 'Poems' forum and a 'Stories' forum. Why Jokes? #50 20070728 23:42:04
Re: a programming forum?Because no one is interested in poems or stories. Just jokes. Stories can go into This Is Cool! or Jokes. Poems can either go into Jokes or This Is Cool! as well. But jokes don't really belong in This is Cool!. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
