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.
I thought your username was familiar, and then I realized why. There's already a User:Spoon!. You might want to say high to him. (Also, it's been suggested to me that your username might be a references to The Tick. Would that be the case? --Michael Mol 22:43, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Ah! I think I might rename shortly (is that possible?), for I'd hate to steal his battle cry. Actually struck on spoon as a handle because of the unix fork function.
Wanted to say also: I really like this site. I've a friend who is studying for his chemical engineering masters; I showed him some MATLAB code on here and he found it helpful. He is rather cynical of his tutor's programming ability - but enough of my communicating his bitterness! A good site indeed.
EDIT: Hi Spoon, I saw you edited my Java entry for pigdice/player. I wanted to say thank-you, I'm new to Java and I enjoyed seeing your implementation of my implementation ;). -- Big Wave Dave
