Scratch challenge!
Pretty cool language, eh?
After solving a Project Euler problem they let you view a forum where you get to see all the neat ways to solve the problems. Our way is probably always going to be brute force. To a hammer, everything looks like a nail. To the forum: Can we solve all of Project Euler's problems in Scratch?

Code:
#! /usr/bin/env python3 i = 0 j = 1 tmp = 0 sum = 0 while tmp <= 4000000: tmp = i + j if tmp % 2 == 0: sum = sum + tmp # sum += temp i = j j = tmp # i, j = j, tmp print(str(sum)) How I would have done it: Code:
#! /usr/bin/env python3 sum, i, j = 0, 0, 1 while j < 4000000: if j % 2 == 0: sum += j i, j = j, i+j print(str(sum))

See the attached PDF for a fancy way of doing the problem.
Edit: Um, see message #7.

Let's not set up a bad example. Right! I think their hidden forum that opens after one solves a problem is very similar to the Hoff forum. Everyone wants to get in. Few do. Last fiddled with by Batalov on 20120527 at 05:57

Oops! It has been removed.
If you want to see the PDF, solve problem #2 at Project Euler.

Solution of p9, it will take some time to solve it with (almost completely) brute force.

Solution of p6 is really fast with brute force:
