JavaRanch has just opened up a new forum, Programming Diversions. Programming Diversions will contain programming puzzles and challenging problems to explore and discuss, including our new monthly Newsletter Programming Challenge. If you were ever dying to ask questions like "What's a good way to count the number of 1 bits in a given integer?", or maybe you were asked a tricky programming question in a job interview that you're not sure of? This would be the place to talk about it. So put on your thinking cap and drop on by to Programming Diversions!
