in thread Reinvent the wheel!

should we all be writing Assembly language code?

Well, we should first build our own processors, hard drives, RAM, et al. That way we can really appreciate Perl. ;)

While trying to explain palindromes to my alien friend, he asked "Eks, aeh dneirf neilay motsem-ordni lapnial p xeot gni y rtelihw?"
What can I say? Palindromes are rasemordnilapyasinactahw~

    No thats really a waste of time. I used to be an electronic Tech....thought learning vacuum tubes, transistors, were important to all obsolete.

    Hard drives, and RAM as we now know it will be obsolete shortly. What you want to learn is the mathematical techniques to model problems.....then you can solve problems whatever level technology or language, you are priviledged to work with.

    Programming will change eventually to mainly realtime stream processing, probably on computers run/connected on laser light instead of electrons. Can you imagine a "transistor" that switches light? Then imagine a cpu made out of them.
