comment How to generate “language-safe” UUIDs?
Use a hash or checksum? If you prefer to use a random string, theres no rule that you have to use every letter in the alphabet.

comment Best way to bring an idea to a corporation
@CoryWalker Then your idea most not be that valuable to you. If it is, then your savings are worth losing. Go on to the next company and pitch them the idea.

comment Developing a dynamic language
I wish I could accept two answers. Thanks, I think I really will implement a Lisp interpreter. It is easy to parse, has ton of documentation and existing code, and should give me a foundation to work with. Unfortunately I took an undergraduate class that used Scheme and it made me pull my hair out ;)

comment Developing a dynamic language
@RobertHarvey Yes, what I am asking is for resources to make my own run time/interpreter/virtual machine. The .Net interpreter is far too complicated for me to base mine off of!
