Welcome to Rosetta Code! I'm Mike, and I noticed you created an account.
Some quick things you should be aware of:
|Template:Mylang||Helps you show what languages you're familiar with, and helps us become aware of skills with languages we haven't seen.|
|Category:Unimplemented tasks by language||A place to find tasks missing solutions in various languages.|
|Blogs, twitter, facebook...||We have them, and are interested in yours.|
|Special:Webchat||Logs you into #rosettacode on the Freenode IRC channel. Not usually the most active communications medium, but occasionally helpful. It's logged at http://irclog.perlgeek.de/rosettacode/today.|
|Rosetta Code:Village Pump||A general Q/A and discussion area.|
|Rosetta Code:Finances||For most of Rosetta Code's history, expenses have been paid out of my pocket. I can't afford that much longer, and so you can see the state of Rosetta Code's finances, and how you may help. If you enjoy or are excited about the site, please consider reading through it.|
Sorry for the boilerplate; it can be a bit difficult giving an individual greeting to each person. If you post information about your technical interests and background, I'll probably read it. If you already have put that kind of information on your user page, I probably already have; I'm always interested in how people do and can benefit from Rosetta Code.
Java last Fridays locale
What country are you in that "March" is abbreviated "mrt"? I think it would be useful to note which locale you're running that in. A solid 75% of visitors to the site in the last year had their browsers set to en-us, en, or en-gb. They might get a little confused when things don't come out in English. --Mwn3d 20:35, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
- Mike: I've written a generalized date (and calendar) function which supports 99 different languages for the months and days-of-the-week. I just checked and found that 22 countries out of 99 have the month of March spelled as Maart, or Mart, or Mart****. I don't know what the abbreviations are for months in those countries, but I suspect it may be Mrt or mrt. I could list the 22 countries if you are interested. -- Gerard Schildberger (talk) 21:34, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Dealing with spam
- In the meantime the links will remain active. Wouldn't it be better to do both? Fwend (talk) 10:20, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
