A Summer of Calculators
Posted by Michael on 25 April 2006, 03:06 GMT

Some of you may be familiar with the Google Summer of Code project. Sponsored by Google, the Summer of Code provides a $4,500 stipend to students 18 years or older who work on an open source project. Students work under the guidance of a mentoring organization. For the 2006 Summer of Code, Detached Solutions has applied and been chosen as a mentoring organization. Interested students can visit the Summer of Code page. This is a nice way to spend your summer programming calculators and get paid for it.

Quoting myself from a few posts down:
"I've been waiting for some Sourceforge issues to be resolved. I want to seperate the 1.2 code and the current 1.3 beta code, and there are some other organizational issues which will simpler with a CVS repository. If sourceforge continues to cause trouble, I will just zip up some code and upload it somewhere prior to the start of SoC."

I am over 81, but I'll probably be working for the Evil Empire across the lake (http://www.microsoft.ee/).

C'mon, just because he's 81, doesn't mean he's too old to program for calculators. Think of all the history he knows!

Gee, I didn't even realize that was a typo! But I still had a hard time believing you were over 81. :-)

I know, I was really excited until I got to the part where it said you had to be 18. *sigh* Oh well, at least I should be able to enter next summer.

Our internet host has be spotty all day. I don't think it's got anything to do with traffic levels, I think they're just having some issues. Hopefully it will be resolved soon.
