Re: Tech Acronyms

I agree with WINDOWS. And LISP, too. lol   
And ROBOT was very good, ZHero!

Lisp is a beautiful language.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Re: Tech Acronyms

I think so too, mainly cause I have one. But on Kick-As$ there was a guy who had a lisp, he was very cute. And featured in my signature.

Re: Tech Acronyms

Not a lisp, but LISP (List Processing), programming language invented by John McCarthy. The language of choice for the AI community.

Re: Tech Acronyms

Well you were the one that spelled it lowercase in the first place. And I'm still confused about this AI stuff??

Re: Tech Acronyms

Artificial Intelligence. Because in LISP everything is a list even the program itself. It was very attractive to early AI programmers.

Hi rhozillez;

Welcome to the forum! But LISP is still a beautiful language.
