Daniel Keys Moran:
Dan Moran is one cool guy. We've worked with a lot of "Hollywood Types", obviously a lot more well known than Dan is. We've never gone all 'oogly woogly' with them - with Dan, we did. The whole autograph thing. But you know, it's because he's a great one. Dan is mostly known as a SciFi author of several books (The Long Run being on our top 5 SciFi books of all time) and darn good writer of just general things too.
He's been missed sorely from the SciFi scene and just hearing from him in general. Yeah, he uses that 'I have a life thing' - which I know to be true - to take loving care of his kids and loving wife. Having recently found that he's back in the wind, I wanted to extend a warm hello and say, thanks for all the fish...
It is can be LOLCODE time plz?:
They're in ur Intarwebs, creating a programming language. The attack of the lolcats has spilled over to programming, with LOLCODE, a language based on the mangled grammar of lolcats. Pull up a buckit and I'll help wif ur understanding of LOLCODE.
Of course, like lolcats, LOLCODE has no practical or educational value, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun -- and how often do you have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the development of a programming language, anyway?
I can has syntax?
The LOLCODE language is still being developed, but you can start learning LOLCODE and even help shape its development. If you're a fan of lolcats, you'll find the syntax easy to remember. If you're not, you probably haven't read this far.
What introduction to a language would be complete without the ever-popular "Hello World!" example? LOLCODE provides a "HAI WORLD!" example instead.
LOLCODE I HAS IT You begin each LOLCODE application with the HAI statement. Next, use the LOLCODE print statement, VISIBLE, and finish your application with KTHXBYE:
VISIBLE "HAI WORLD!"
You'll notice, of course, that everything in LOLCODE is in all caps.
I'm in ur loop, iterating ur variable
To declare a variable in LOLCODE, use the I HAS A statement, like so:
I HAS A CHEEZBURGER
Here, we're declaring CHEEZBURGER as a variable. Let's take a look at a short script that will iterate CHEEZBURGER and print out its value:
I HAS A CHEEZBURGER ITZ 1
IM IN YR LOOP
VISIBLE "I has dis many: " N CHEEZBURGER
IZ CHEEZBURGER BIGGER THAN 11 O RLY?
The I HAS A statement declares the variable CHEEZBURGER as 1. The IM IN YR LOOP statement starts the loop.
Next, we print out the current number using the VISIBLE function. You need to include N CHEEZBURGER rather than just CHEEZBURGER to print out the value of CHEEZBURGER. Then we do a comparison test, to see if the value is greater than the amount we want to trigger the end of the loop. UP CHEEZBURGER!!1 tells LOLCODE to add one to the value of CHEEZBURGER.
When we do the test, if it matches (YA RLY) LOLCODE will GTFO and exit the loop. If it doesn't (NO WAI) it will iterate the variable again. Note that the loop ends with KTHX rather than KTHXBYE, which is recommended only for closing the whole program block. Finally, we end the program block with KTHXBYE.
The WaterBOB™ turns any standard bathtub into an emergency water reserve, storing up to 100 gallons of fresh drinking water. Water stored in an open bathtub, with dirt, soap film and exposure to debris will spoil quickly and become useless.
When an emergency arises simply lay the WaterBOB™ in your bathtub, hookup to the faucet and fill to capacity. A siphon pump is included to easily dispense the water into jugs or pitchers. The WaterBOB™ follows FDA guidelines and is constructed of heavy-duty food grade plastic.
Living in Souther California and having gone through a couple major Earthquakes, we can pretty much say that this is a great idea®. For $22.95 you just can't go wrong here folks.
