(Though I can see you're already ahead of the game with Mylang. :) )

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
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. --Michael Mol 00:40, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Adding a language

You might want to check out Rosetta Code:Add a Language, a nice little tutorial for setting up infrastructure for a new language on RC. --Michael Mol 20:48, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Signing comments

Hi, Dave. I'm really enjoying your stuff. I'd like to point out that it's normal to sign your comments in Talk pages with --~~~~, and other pages (apart from your user page) should generally be contributor-agnostic. (i.e. pointing out "in hardware engineering, it is common that", as opposed to "as a hardware engineer, I've found that". Thanks for all your input so far! --Michael Mol 15:13, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
