Logorrhea

I have seen and read Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, Hamlet, more than any other work by the playwright. We are all familiar with the play to some degree or another; or at least heard it quoted: “To be or not to be” might be the most famous line from any play in the English language. 749 more words

Rolling along...

Since my own little pep-talk, I’ve managed to fix up Canasta to the point where it’s mostly playable. Oh my gosh did I have a bunch of redundancies in the code. 214 more words
