Comment Re:BASIC is great for kids (Score 1) 548

Fewer ridiculous syntax requirements? Stupid unnecessary crap like explicit line numbers?

Isn't Python that language where the whitespace/indentation affects the workings of the program code?

For a kid starting out to program, I don't at all think that BASIC is a bad idea. If nothing else it might light the fire inside a future hacker and encourage him or her to absorb as much as they can from 'puters. Why start with something that is any more complicated than it needs to be?

Comment Re:Where are the binaries with OpenSSL??? (Score 1) 160

I noticed that as well. You can find the binary with OpenSSL on Apache's "archive" server, but I'm not going to download/install it until they fix what the problem is.

It looks like there was a problem with them and they were removed from their SVN repository:
