A High School Programming Curriculum For All Students?

Shard013 BASIC or Pascal (214 comments)

Personally I would recommend teaching BASIC or Pascal to high school students. Both of them were more or less designed for teaching or beginners.

Students that are not interested in computers can at least make little songs using beeps in BASIC in a few minutes with a little teaching but hopefully can continue learning more about programming or computers.

Samsung Mass Produces Fast 256GB SSDs

Shard013 Re:cant wait (280 comments)

ditto, but im waiting for permanent data erasure to become a little more mature. i understand the wear leveling incorporated into SSD can cause current programs to stumble.

The mean time to fail in the new SSD's is a bucket load better that most regular HDD's.


Between the 10,000-100,000 writes and the logic used to try not to rewrite the same place over and over they do quite well.

How to give yourself a laser tattoo

Shard013 Shard013 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Shard013 writes "Ever wondered how to give yourself a laser tattoo? With a laser cutter, a 6 sided die, a small magnet and a high tolerance for pain. There are demonstrations of the laser burning the tattoos onto skin and it also shows you what happens if you mess up and accidentally leave your arm in the laser beam. The author also does not give a disclaimer, but does offer this handy tip. 'I am leaving a disclaimer out of this, because any person with access to a laser cutter who is dumb enough to try this, deserves what they get.'"
