The local HS is - at least superficially - doing it right. They're teaching C(C++??) instead of a toy language of some sort.

About a year ago my cousin discovered his Dads Windows tablet/netbook apparently didn't quite have a power brick big enough to power the system at full CPU load and had crappy power management as well. He wrote a program to find prime numbers, when appeared to run fine for a bit over a day; at which point the device abruptly powered off and refused to restart. I visited about a week later, at which point everyone thought he'd killed it and his dad and sisters were heaping friendly abuse on him. I was asked for troubleshooting suggestions; after being plugged back in and let to sit for about 20 or 30 minutes while we talked about something else, it booted up again with almost completely dead battery. Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh: Laugh | :laugh:
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
