Script Kiddies beware. Adam Lindsay has begun an effort to replace your l33t speaking ways with a rudimentary development language (lolcode) using the same coded phrases you disrespect your mothers with (you text your mom with that hand?). As a demonstration of his awesomeness, Lindsay offers this example of a simple count loop: HAI CAN… Continue reading LOL Code
It’s the day before the day before Christmas. Celebrate Christmas Adam with someone!
