Off to see “The Prestige” tonight. Found myself thumb-twiddling at several points so 6/10. Did some Christmas shopping and spoke to les crumblies as well as a colleague from work who rang with – quell surprise – a computer problem. Felt dirty and used afterwards.

Excellent Linux format edition which had a tutorial on Mono programming which I ran through – the usual Hello World example however it was for programming newbies so it will be interesting to see the similarities to Java (its main competitor in the OOP world) and whether I find it any easier or more enjoyable – certainly it is well supported under FC6 and I had downloaded all the libraries required using Pirut in no time at all. Here then, is Hello World in Mono.

using System;

namespace HelloWorld
class MainClass
public static void Main(string[] args)
Console.WriteLine(“Hello World!”);

Mono is the open source implementation of Microsoft’s .Net and it was not so long back that it was listed (along with NTFS, my-my, how things change) on Fedora’s Forbidden Items list.
