Oh no... they are replicating! Run for your lives!

So... funny a thing happened today: I got to work, forgot everything I knew about programming, and spent the entire day looking things up on Google. OK, so I didn't really forget everything, but I have started to become burdened by all of the subtle nuances of the various different programming languages that I work with on a daily basis. Between ASP.NET, C#, HTML, JavaScript, MS SQL, VBScript and Powershell it can be very difficult to remember what you are trying to accomplish let alone how to do something like String Formatting and Interpolation. And then every once in a while you add in a completely new language and your whole programming world gets flipped upside-down. For instance, I am currently learning IronPython and having loads of fun dealing with “indentation = code block”, which means that whitespace is now important (complete bizarro-world from other programming languages!) .

It is for this reason that I decided to start a second blog devoted entirely to code. Not just any code, however, this blog will hold my super awesome “I can’t believe how simple that was, it only took 3 hours of research to figure it out” code snippets that I have found on my quest for intergalactic domination. I really should write them all down in a book and sell a million copies, but seeing as books have yet to keep up with hyperlinks and labels, a new code blog will have to do for now.

So without further ado I present to you Http://CodeBlog.Theg2.Net
