Nice Stack Jacque!
I wish I could learn to sing that way but belive me, after almost three
decades listening to musice never made me sing well :-)
As for personal stacks, I am now a CS student and made a little Assembly
interpreter stack to teach me that dreadful computer language... I did a
little article on it here: http://andregarzia.com/blog/files/aasm.html
I took one night and I am pretty happy with it although Mark pointed that I
should code some variables differently if I ever think about implementing
I think I'll build a picture croping tool next, I keep launching iPhoto just
to crop some shots or pics.
