Since my first FORTRAN coarse in college, I have just loved programming. For something even as simple as programming an algebraic equation, observing the computer do exactly what I programmed is just as exhilarating now as it was in 1981 when I wrote my first program.

I just had a similar kind of experience. In the early morning hours of August 1, I got the MDBG (CC-CEDICT) dictionary with 75,660 "word" entries loaded into computer memory via a custom designed data structure. (The remaining entries are "character" entries.)

This weekend I'll begin to incorporate this word dictionary into the interface. Hopefully, I'll have a little something to show by the end of this month.
