The HotBasic pages and examples were lost because I committed a major flub just after a server migration, and then had to re-restore the DB backup that was the basis of the migration. I left a site notice up for a week, but I guess it took a little longer than that for you to come by again. Sorry about that. And now the boilerplate...
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. --Michael Mol 16:33, 21 March 2010 (UTC)
