Jason Follas has done it again! He has trumped all of our feeble geeky efforts to firmly establish himself as the reigning "King Nerd." Over the years, Jason repeatedly has proven his worthiness. Here are a few highlights.

  • Built his own Donkey Kong machine. Not a MAME cabinet. A real, full-blown Donkey Kong machine. Sold at auction.
  • Played the 1984 Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy text adventure game on SQL Server 2005 via SQLCLR.
  • Presented a public demo of the SQL Server 2005 XML Data Type by importing World of Warcraft guild data via web services.

Today, I began a modest blog post series of F# solutions to the Project Euler problems. Not to be outdone, Jason has started a similar series. However, Jason has far loftier, or rather, nerdier goals for his series. You see, Jason is solving the problems with LUA, the scripting language beneath World of Warcraft. In fact, he's using WoW as his test-bed.

Don't believe me? Check out the screenshot below.


The man must be stopped before he goes too far.
