Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Cream were a kind of faux-Blues group. With or without a mad drummer! They were invented by the BBC to make Blues palatable to British audiences.

Re: Hello World in all Languages, post here

It's too warm to do any serous work, so I am messing with Sublime Text IDE for Rust.

fn main() 
{

println!("EeK");

let n1 = {

	let a = 2; // Let upper case, works..??
	let b = 40;
	a + b
};

println!("Hello World {:?} ", n1);
}

Re: Can we start a thread on Australia?

He's Australian, I've checked that his mother is Indigenous Australian from the Stolen Generation. He's doing the Aboriginal war dance (!= haka, afaik). Why such a fuss?
Because you are taking it on face value and incomplete information.
It is not 'what' but 'why'.

Re: Hello World in all Languages, post here

What's your opinion on Rust and GO?

Re: Can we start a thread on Australia?

Adam Goddes does the haka (and not as entertainment as the commentators seem to claim, turkeys). You can only take so much racial abuse I suppose. www.youtube.com/watch?v=32PZWtjbtq0 There was a program on BBC2 about Adam Goddes. It felt like 50s apartheid for me. Imagine this happening on BBC's Mat...

The 60s were better, at least better actors like the Stalinist (according to Eric Blair the MIfunf informer)  Orson Welles.

In the  past 2 weeks I have been asked at least 10 times my opinion on Rust and GO.
It must be the warm weather. What does it mean, JIm?
