I will echo Phillippe’s sentiments here- I have learned many computer-science concepts here (with the help of Wikipedia). I’d like to acknowledge some of my favourite contributors:
David Manura: has the gift of being able to think things right through to their logical end.
Mike Pall: answers pretty much every LuaJIT query and doesn’t mind going into very interesting detail sometimes.
