Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    What is the assignment?

    He has to take in 2-dimensional arrays of characters that forms an ascii drawing of a wang. He then has to evaluate these drawings on a variety of criteria including lowest overall value of all the characters stored and most wang like.

    Okay, first paragraph of this story:
    Spoiler:

    I'd remove the period separating "black skirt" and "and three-inch heels"

    I don't think you're supposed to start a sentence with 'and'. It looks really clumsy.

    Why not just use a Wang-Johnson algorithm for calculating the gdc of the strings then modulo that and put all the wangs in a problem-tree and then then do a girth-first search?

    Oh, well, it's not really programming. It's an assignment for my programming class. We have a few linked based stacks, and we're do to a series of push/pop operations on them. This is simple, but they want us to draw diagrams in paint to illustrate what is happening after each operation.
    Spoiler:

    We've to do this for roughly 40 different operations over 4 different stacks.

    I don't think you're supposed to start a sentence with 'and'. It looks really clumsy.

    I'd dump both uses of 'rather' as well. It feels fussy and unneccessary. 'She slumped, dejected' is a bit redundant. If she slumps, and she says 'shit' we know she's feeling dejected. You've already shown, don't tell as well. I'd recast the sentence about the three-inch heels as well. Starting it with 'And' feels clumsy.

    No, you're not, but I'm starting a new sentence and using 'and' to reflect the protagonist noticing the shoes as an afterthought. I suppose I could use a dash to emphasize that instead.

    That's clearly the best way to do it when you have a lot of database growth, but most of the time you're just looking for data truncation so all you need to do is insert just the tip into the stack to see if it's cut or uncut.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    It doesn't read that way to me currently. I think a dash might work, you should try it.

    The convenience of air travel has taken another hit.
    Flights containing unaccompanied freight from Somalia will be suspended in the wake of the cargo plane terror plot, Theresa May has said.

    The suspension, which will come into force from midnight, is a "precautionary measure" based on "possible contact between al-Qaeda in Yemen and terrorist groups in Somalia, as well as concern about airport security in Mogadishu", Mrs May told MPs.

    Toner cartridges larger than 500g (17.6oz) will also be banned from hand baggage on flights departing from the UK and also on cargo flights unless they originate from a regular shipper with security arrangements approved by the Department for Transport, she added.

    Prime Minister David Cameron is chairing a meeting of the Government's emergency planning committee as aviation experts called for a full review of the security measures for cargo.

    Norman Shanks, former head of security at airport operator BAA, said it was time to introduce "package by package" screening after it emerged one of the cargo plane bombs was transported on passenger aircraft before being found.

    Ryanair chief executive Michael O'Leary said: "What happens, particularly in the coverage of the Yemeni issues of recent days, is that we have another huge lurch by the securicrats into making travel even more uncomfortable and an even more tedious ordeal for the travelling public... Sadly they always win the day and they lurch around with ludicrous new measures."

    It may not sound relevant to most of us, but it's one more knee jerk reaction that makes travelling with anything rather inconvenient.

    Yes, I think there is really no point in requiring you to do that. It must take hours.

    Two or three examples is all you need to illustrate exactly how it works - always.

    It shall be glorious.

    I do feel kind of fancy free though - I've never booked a holiday with this little notice (4 days!) and there are worrying gaps. We are going to wing a lot of it - maybe book rooms when we get there, hope that we can hire a car without an International Driver's Permit or train/bus it. We also don't quite know where we are going once we get there.

    My knowledge of the place is a mixture of the Classical, early Medieval and WW2 - so probably not a huge help for contemporary trips
