Or, if he takes on too many projects he may never get passed the stage of talking about them.

Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

He can never be a bumpkin.

Another interesting programming problem is gAr's latest probability problem.

Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

I'm pretty sure that he did not mean a math problem.

He can become a philosopher

Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

He can.

There are no such thing as a math problem that is also not a programming problem. The simulation is a challenging programming task and is a very useful skill to acquire.

Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

There are no such thing as a math problem that is also not a programming problem.

But there can be programming problems which are not math problems or atleast not hardcore math problems.

Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

When you are programming them you do not notice the problem being mathematical. You just are a writing a program. A programmer should know how to simulate.

Then he should go to work for Micro$oft. They are working on a OS that works for 35 years now. Someday they may get one.

Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

A program could certainly write lyrics that are superior to those written by that Gangrene guy.

If more people watch that Gangrene guy we will have a lot of need for your medical knowledge.

Re: sugest some project ideas....to have fun time with programming

Here's a program that writes out most of the lyrics of an older popular song:

Do[Print["Na"], {56}]

“Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

“Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
