This is more just a challenge for the hell of it: Build a new programming language with an emulator in java. so it compiles back down to a .jar but is higher level, would be a cool exercise to do.
Yeah another unrelated challenge:
Use regex in Java (or Python or Ruby I don't care)to get the latest posts from the index page of JGO. Yes, regex, to parse HTML. *Laughs maniacally*
More to learn regex than anything because it's a cool little thing.
Both ideas sound like fun! I tried to create simple scripting language a long time ago, but it was not very successful
I guess I should learn some regex too...
Thanks for anyone answering so far, but I still feel like we haven't found THE
idea.. Keep tossing everyone!
