The Return of Ada

Red Weasel Re:I used ada.... (336 comments)

The great part about being a programmer for the Air Force is how easy it was to get a waiver to use a more appropriate language. ADA was used in tech school and that was about it.

Now that I've left I STILL find ADA code running from the 70s. Upgrading it is a major bitch but If you are going to sling code for the government it would be good to know the basics.

The ability to import java and c into ADA are a real boon.

Red Weasel writes "Wired News Reports "A 14-year-old pacifist is pulled out of class and interrogated by Secret Service agents in Sacramento after she vents her anger at Bush's Iraq policies on her MySpace page" From the Article "Upset by the war in Iraq, Julia Wilson vented her frustrations with President Bush last spring on her web page on MySpace.com. She posted a picture of the president, scrawled "Kill Bush" across the top and drew a dagger stabbing his outstretched hand. She later replaced her page on the social-networking site after learning in her eighth-grade history class that such threats are a federal offense. It was too late."
