+Gareth Hall Seems that G+ adds some invisible unicode to the end of the URL. Pasting it and pressing backspace makes it work. Weird.

This is the future of programming. Or a very important part of it's future.

Again, I'll go with "it depends". For incredibly complex purposes like AI, absolutely. On the flip side, I work for a company that abandoned PHP for certain web apps in favour of C, because PHP simply wasn't fast enough for our needs. This decision was made before HipHop; I'm not sure how its availability would have affected that decision.

Looking for the ultimate expression of educational achievement? Well look to Curtin University! However for all intents and purposes, if you attend UWA fear not, as they do a decent job, I suppose.

Imagine a casino where everyone is cheering to their hearts content, their excited faces only broken by a moment's notice of sheer terror then back to joy as they've realised they've won big. Well, The Star isn't really like that. A bit quiet and reserved this crowd seems to be. However with the grand decor, you can easily have fun in your own world with some close friends.

The best school in the entire country, and one of the best in the world. Not only academically, sporting and culturally, but values, principals and core key elements that make every student that attends, a world-class citizen and outstanding gentleman.
