in reply to How to introduce 8 year olds to (Perl) programming?

I was programming device drivers in C and developing video games for my Atari when I was 8.

(Okay, okay. Actually I was still learning how to tie my shoes, but I could've been programming!)

    Ah, you were heavily involved in the booting process. ;-)

    When I was 8, most people had never seen a computer - heck, most people wouldn't know what a computer was. I certainly didn't! People still had to land on the moon on my 8th birthday.

    No, you were programming in that dirty word, PHP ;)

    Seriously though, C at 8 is pretty amazing.

[Corion]: Mr. Muskrat: I'm not sure if it really happens more often, but I don't exactly know either
[LanX]: yep
[LanX]: more often for some weeks now
[Corion]: I think I'll have to manually (as god) intervene with that node, as the simple reparenting didn't seem to fix the parent/child relationship of the nodes
[Corion]: I think I have an idea but I'll have to open a ticket with Pair.com on that - hopefully I get to that on the weekend
LanX imagines a burning thorn bush
[Mr. Muskrat]: Thank you!
[Mr. Muskrat]: Oh that is odd. I got the message that it was reparented but yeah, it didn't actually do it. lol
[Corion]: LanX: No, Co-Rion appears as Monkey God :-)
[Corion]: Mr. Muskrat: Yeah, that message is automatic when the "normal" reparenting is done, but I think some rows that make up the node were not added to the DB properly
