My programming career ending in university when I used if {i < 100; fork(); i++;}.

I thought it would make 100 copies I could close manually, no, that's 2100. I crashed "Mike" the university super computer and had to go to the server office and face the music and help them figure out what happened...

Unless you want me to do that here that is...

Pretty good, I only managed to put in 58008 and turn the abacus upside down.

We're already using both our stickies for this sub unfortunately, with the welcome message and the new app release announcement.

Oh thank God. Sweet sweet music this one.

We know these sites are full of programmers, come on out and code for liberty!

Agreed! I think the projects I listed won't overlap with anything we're working on for a little while, so everyone can still have their part of the code completely to themselves.

Yeah, good plan. The call for designers/CSS people is good too. Maybe we can slip this in the next time we announce something on Reddit.

I know you're joking, but in reality we'd vet all the code changes that go in to saidit, so there'd be no way anyone could backdoor secret code in to saidit or anything.
