I've seen the dapp-a-day on reddit, and like it a lot. It's pretty hard to find the good stuff by "poking around", there's just too much to browse. It gets even harder to follow the feeds if one's got AFK obligations.
Thanks for linking
tryExceptElse.sol, it's much closer to C++/C#/Java than what I present here, and exactly the language trope I refer to in the intro. May come handy if I ever get to writing something that's actually useful.
