Programming Prodigy

Just wondering, is it possible?
Define prodigy here.
Yes. Me. I am the programming prodigy.


At age 5 I had already designed a search algorithm for unordered sets that became more efficient with larger and more complex data sets.

Pfft. That's nothing compared to the kernel I wrote when I was 3.

It eats up as much RAM as it possibly can, and BSOD's whenever the user is doing something critical. I sold it to Microsoft for $5.
Bah! You amateurs. My Bingo program done in Basic sweeps the floor with your work. It has 2 hardcoded bingo cards and cannot tell you if you won or lost, much less would it know about the type of pattern needed to win. I did it when I was 35.... last week.

Take that!

Regards,

THE programming prodigy.
Haha!
I wrote a 3D MMORPG optimised for 64-bit multi-core processors with SSE3, using CUDA and PhysX and supporting both OpenGL and DirectX, which it can switch between on-the-fly, when I was one year old.

If anyone here is a programming prodigy, I'm your guy.

Looks like you guys aren't reading properly. I said TWO bingo cards!! TWO!!!
Using DOS at 2. Building platform games with ActionScript at 9. University at 15... meh :)
I wrote "Hello World" at 23.

You're welcome.
I once wrote an algorithm.
I invented science, you're welcome.
Liam Howlett was a programming Prodigy ... or was that a Prodigy programmer ...
iHutch105 for the win.
bajarne stroustrop. bill gates. steve jobs. bill wazniak.

This thread is full of narcissism, beware.

None of those people were really prodigies, half of them aren't (weren't) really programmers.

Also, It's Steve Wozniak :P

I get it!
Is "Bill Wazniak" Steve Wozniak?
I once wrote a program that became narcissistic and wouldn't let me compile any other programs so that it could keep compiling itself. I had to kill it.
I once wrote a narcissist and asked him to program something for me. He never responded, I assume he was too busy gazing into a pond.
