I enjoy semicolons and braces. One of the projects I work on is in Coffeescript, and it annoys the hell out of me.

Don't get me wrong, I like them too. I have just created a habit of not using them since I've been on a Python kick recently. I haven't played with Coffeescript yet though. What is the purpose of it (genuinely asking)?

It actually just compiles down to Javascript, so the point of it is to speed up writing code. The time it takes me to basically remember the correct syntax of...no syntax...kinda slows me down. The writing part is pretty quick, but if I have to go back through and debug code, especially someone else's, it gets a little hard.

I'm sure if I were to switch to 100% using it, it would work better, but if I were to switch how I write Javascript, I would just go to Dart.

Anyone familiar with cluster computing or slave/master computing? I have a few old computers lying around (they aren't too terribly powerful) and I wanted to get some use out of them. I've been looking around and the best solution I've come up with so far is Synergy, but that's just a KM switch, so they're still 3 separate computers working independently.

I don't necessarily need to do heaving computations on it, but I would like to combine their efforts to turn 3 crappy computers into 1 decent 3-core computer. I know from research that this is quite difficult with such a small scale and not really worth it unless I want to render video or figure out genetic folding.

Any thoughts?
