That's just good to know in general. It's basically a rigorous treatment of the question "if something is infinitesimally close to something else, does it become that thing?" which is interesting not just for math and science

Coding is not a problem. You can hire an Indian from vworker.com to do any coding you need for $1 an hour. Coders are modern day assembly line workers.

The hard part, is coming up with an idea worth coding...

XOXO needs to realize that before spamming CS flame. In all honesty, if you sucked in technical subjects growing up you're probably going to suck in this as well.
