Hello world!

WordPress gave me a hello world post, so I’m going to use it.

If you didn’t know, hello world is a well established tradition in computer programming. Its a basic sanity check for whatever new platform you’ve just built. So here’s mine.

Hello world!

Or, as Mr. B. W. Kernighan put it in the first ever known use of hello world:

main( ) {
extrn a, b, c;
putchar(a); putchar(b); putchar(c); putchar('!*n');
}
a 'hell';
b 'o, w';
c 'orld';

There you have it. Not enough? This better be. And by the way, what’s with scientists using their initials? Save it for secret agents, really. I mean, B.W. is so boring! If I were him, I’d go by B-Dubs.

But thats just me. So, hello!
