Holykael1, that looks weird to me and I forgot french. Can you give a more in-depth explanation of what it's supposed to do?

Sample input and output would be helpful.

It's Portuguese not French xD.
Ok I will translate the objective of the exercise as best as I can.
Ok so imagine you have a Sentence "John and Ann will go to Tony's birthday" as a string, you give the program that string and a list of names like (list "John" "Ann"), the program will censor those names(using # as a replacement for each character in the name) in the sentence and return "#### and ### will go to Tony's birthday".
The program will accept a string and a list as arguments and censor the elements of said list if they are present in the string.

Finished Virtue's Last Reward last night. Excellent story. I still have issues with the puzzles because sometimes I just don't make the necessary connections, but spoiler free walkthroughs nudge me when I get stuck before I get too frustrated. Luna's ending was heart breaking. Now that I have seen the true end, all  can say is that volume 3 had better get made some day because that cliffhanger is evil if they don't make it. (Yes I know the most recent news is that things are being discussed.)

Played House of the Dead overkill with a friend, that game was insane and tons of fun. Absolutely fantastic on rails shooter. Laughed out loud quite a bit.

Im waiting for FF X hd/Dark Souls/Nier to arrive.

Those were obnoxiously puzzley and dealing with strings, lists and things of the sort was way more complicated than it needed to be.

Oh. Your prof was making you rewrite the Racket common library as a learning experience, I'm guessing. Scheme also has more typical iterative loops (although they're not as robust as what Common Lisp has, from what I remember.), and whether you use recursion or a loop is entirely down to which is going to work better in that situation.

Did they even get into closures at all? The fun stuff you can do with functions-as-objects?

The advantage with Scheme and other LISPs is that you have tail call optimization, meaning that if you DO need a recursive function, you can set it up so that it won't eventually blow up the call stack.  

I  didn't even get into stacks.. That subject was to introduce you to programming concepts(It was literally called Introduction to programming, only on the second semester right now I have actual regular ass "Programming" as a subject(, we never really went indepth with anything. We learned to recursion, iteration, how much resources certain algorithmns cost in relation to other more effective alternatives, manipulation of lists, strings, vectors, create abstractions and we also dealt with using procedures as arguments, functions with an unlimited set of arguments. There was a lot of emphasis on dealing with "pairs" aswell.
Im only starting to learn about stacks with x86 assembly with Push and Pop instructions, just now,  im basically 2 months into the 2nd semester.
Just to give you an example, this is as complex as we got:
(define anonimizar!  ;This is a program meant to censor any given element of a list
   (lambda (frase lista)
     (letrec ((limpa
               (lambda (i nchar)
                 (if (positive? nchar)
                       (string-set! frase i #\#)
                       (limpa (add1 i) (sub1 nchar))))))
               (lambda (i nome)
                 (if (>= i 0)
                     (if (string-ci=? nome (substring frase i (+ i (string-length nome))))
                           (limpa i (string-length nome))
                           (aux (sub1 i) nome))
                         (aux (sub1 i) nome))))))
       (if (not (null? lista))
             (aux (- (string-length frase) (string-length (car lista))) (car lista))
             (anonimizar! frase (cdr lista)))))))

Meh, he waited outside to start a fight, and he approached threateningly. No video, no witnesses, and no idea who he was...I'm not concerned with legal issues. I'm more concerned with him coming back with a few friends.

What did he do exactly?

I learned  "Graphical" or something as far as Scheme goes. I hated how it relied so much on recursive calls. Those were obnoxiously puzzley and dealing with strings, lists and things of the sort was way more complicated than it needed to be. Im still on the very basic levels of C++ so maybe I'll eat crow later.

x86 Intel assembly has less registers to work with, very specific rules attached to those registers, very specific rules in general and Im learning more complex algorithms with this assembly than I did with MIPS. I only learned MIPS assembly for like a few weeks, it was part of the Architecture and organization of computers subject, I was learning other things beforehand like Binary, Two's complement, circuitry, memory and architecture of one MIPS processor.

Calling it now that KH III doesn't come out until late 2015 in Japan.

I bet for an early 2017/late 2016 release for KH 3. Nomura himself said they shouldnt have announced the game that soon.

I am dieing for new media on the game. I neeed it in my veins now. Talking about FF XV

Their primary demographic has always consisted of people who'd shout "Kamehameha!" at the top of their lungs during recess or building cardboard box forts in their backyard with a magic marker sign reading "No Girls Allowed!" masking-taped to the top of it. What happened to Level 5 was Dark Cloud's Georama being a neat thing back when neat things were still possible on a console (remember how Dark Cloud 1 was billed as a Zelda Killer), getting tapped out to work on Dragon Quest 8 in place of the previous developers, Sony naming White Knight Chronicles as a primary Playstation only franchise (effectively turning Level 5 into a second party developer), and Professor Layton/Izuna Eleven.

Did you pull this info out of your ass?
Im just messing with you but how the hell do you even come up with these "statistics" xD?

In my university I have lectures and practical classses. Practical classes are obligatory to attend and they are somewhat useful because that's when we actually program or do exercises. The lectures I have attended are so boring and slow that I feel like Im there wasting my time so I'd rather stay at home, waste my fuckin life on the internet and then panic a few days before each exam as I try to learn a few months worth of things. I have been doing great so far!
Hell I even did that with the MIPS assembly last semester and I learned the whole freaking semester in 1 day. I didnt exactly excell  but a 13/20 is not too shabby.
I can't do that with x86 assembly because it's getting more complicated though and fuck Im behind on C++. I  need to catch up in these following weeks.
Programming during the first semester was  also a stupid language called Scheme made for learning.. I would have rather jumped straight into C++ to learn programming principles and basics. C++ is so much less restrictive and obnoxiously puzzley.

I took stats and I've never had to use anything from that when programming or in my testing job. It really depends on what you're doing. If your software is for a domain that's inherently concerned with stats, sure, you'll need it. If your software's for a domain that's NOT inherently concerned with stats? You probably won't need it.

Although I can't honestly say that I've found any of the CS classes I took useful for much of anything. Every programming class I took was woefully inadequate at teaching programming -- useful for teaching some algorithms and hey, look, these data structures exist in the C++, and other stuff that you could get just as well from perusing a reference book, sure. But in terms of how to actually write complete programs that do non-trivial things? I never had a class get into that, and I'm not even sure you're not going to learn that from a class, instead of just going out and making something.

--- edit ---

Oh god I got a stuffed Woobat from Five Below because it's amazing.

Classes are mostly useless, I am currently skipping most of the lectures. I am basically learning everything on my own through the recommended books and shit. If anything they classes are  nothing more than a reference point of what I should be learning at a specific time or whatever.

Hmm I see. Thanks for in the info. It makes it a little bit more tolerable.

And some of the key Type-0 folks, and Type-0 is awesome.

Plot-wise too?

For an FF with a militaristic story with fantasy elements is fairly elaborate, not too hard to follow and satisfying in its own terms. Type-0 also has two endings and the script was written by Hiroki Chiba.

Personally I really like the opening sequence Type-0 has. Is different from what you see in other games in the series and it sets the tone very well.

Holy shit I should not have watched that intro, it makes me even more pissed off that we didn't get this game. That was fantastic! Grittiest stuff I've ever seen from the series and the music is great. Damn you localization team.

Fear not my son, a fan translation patch will be released in August, import a JPN copy and use thy CFW.

Got some BS statistics exam. I HATE STATISTICS. It's one of those mandatory but not related subjects to computer science. what a uselesss piece of garbage. It's easy, it's just more work on my back.

Guys Im not saying eating food that fell on the ground will kill you.. I was just making the observation about the implications of it and also trying to eliminate cognitive dissonance. If you are going to do something, face the truth, dont try to make excuses like "It's not that bad", 5 second rule, etc,etc.
It's like smokers who convince themselves that they will never get cancer, that they are somehow special and that the negative side effects only affect others.
I once dropped bread on the floor, it was a clean floor I might add(I say clean but you cant really know on a microscopic level), I willingly picked it up and ate it because I was just kind of depressed at the time and didnt give a shit, but I did it knowingly and fully aware of my idiocy.

Finished peace walker yday. Today I found out about the existence of a true ending which led me into a state of unbelievable rage and despair. HOW COULD HAVE I MISSED IT.(I didnt really fall into despair but I like dramatizing the situation). I didnt think much of the game storywise, the ending I got was good and all but the actual story was kind of bland and uneventful until I saw that fucking true ending on youtube that blew my mind. Also I wathced ground zeroes on youtube, I wish I hadnt because I would have preferred to play it.. 30 dollar demo or not.. I was really satisfied with what I saw storywise, a big cocktease but awesome. And also if you make the stupid mistake of skipping peace walker you wont know wtf is going on in MGS 5 so don't do that.
