Art & Logic

Ran across
this page
Looks like an interesting place to work.
It’s a colection of programmers and other tech staff that are geographically distributed across the US and Canada.

Kevin at work sent me a link to
this link
that looks like a real news page.
It wasn’t until I accessed
the tech section
that I was sure the site was a parody.
Oh, and be forewarned — accessing
the site root
will take over your whole screen with personal ads in a flash animation.


About rae

I'm a long-time Mac and iOS developer. I'm also a big fan of Ruby on Rails and relational databases. I tend to work remotely, in my basement with occasional trips to the office. I'm also a big videophile, both TV and film, and can't wait for a good, inexpensive home 4k solution.

    That Art & Logic has a c++ test: … It says it takes about 10 to 30 hours for most people to write it. Wild, first off if I had to do it in C++ I’d probably start with “yum install mysql”. However, I’d first propose as a start “while (>){split ‘ ‘;$a{$_[0]}=$_[1]}” There 2 solutions in under 2 minutes, with time left over to watch 24 DVDs. Do you think I’ll get the job?

    The extent of my style is “Alt-F8” (reformat selection), and then usually only after
    perl -ne “print “long $_;\n”” >new.c
    perl -ne “print “{SOMEMACRO(struct tagThis,$_),0,0,0},\n”” >new.c
    or similar.

    Gee, there’s a bug in posting software, those last 2 messages to actually contain the redictions from the files and append to the files I was trying to write. &gt&gt &lt type stuff…

    Oh lord, “do actually contain the redirections” e.g.
    perl -ne “print “long $_;\n”” &gt&gt new.c &lt x.txt

    Hm, are you typing &gt and &lt? you need semicolons after the entity names, as in &gt;. Or were you just typing the “>” and “<” literally and Movable Type screwed them up?

  6. Jeff K

    Movable type ate my keystrokes of shift-comma and shift-dot shift-dot. As a matter of fact, after the shift-comma I had x.txt, and that was eaten too. testing

    comments have all HTML tags (anything between < and the closest >) stripped out. So if you want “<” you have to type “&lt;”, etc.
