Death to the Space Infidels!

Interesting piece by Jeff Atwood on spaces versus tabs in code. I specifically enjoyed the reference to Whitespace and thank Jeff for introducing me to such a wonderful programming language. Out you go, Python.

Procedurally generated landscape flyby demo with impressive graphics and audio, and oh yeah — a total size of four kilobytes! Absolutely mind-blowing. You can run the original 4kb demo application (Windows) yourself if you have a powerful machine.

When you’re watching the flyby, keep in mind that it’s 41 times smaller than Notepad and 625 times smaller than the everyday Visual C++ alarm clock application I happen to be using. It’s quite amazing what can be accomplished with such a small amount of code.
