My article this week was influenced by a posting on another board, where a student asked for advice on how to simplify a program to draw a diamond (read it here)

Since we all know that if you have 2 programmers, you'll have at least 3 or 4 ideas on how to write any given program, feel free to post your version or just kvetch about my code below.
