  • Re: Image fail

    [quote user="Julia"]"view source" reveals that most of this 600kB behemoth of a page is a single image tag with the image content base-64-encoded and embedded directly. Way to defeat cacheing and kill my bandwidth, guys.[/quote] Bonus points for being an image that doesn't work.

  • Re: bad casting choice

    [quote user="dtech"]He guys I have an idea! We have a garbage collector in Obj C but it just counts references right? What if would just follow all pointers from the currently running code and delete everything that isn't reachable! That way we can detect unreachable objects which still reference each other![/quote] Terrible idea; ...

  • Re: Amazingly screwed-up installation experience

    [quote user="boomzilla"]I've never understood the hate for the Awesome bar, either. The name always seemed a bit campy, but not really wrong, compared to what it replaced.[/quote] The Steam overlay browser doesn't search when you type stuff in the address bar. It drives me crazy every time I see that "Page cannot be ...

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]Draconian DRM Revealed in Windows 7 Slashdot "folk wisdom" which was entirely fabricated. Entirely.[/quote] I need to see a doctor after reading that and some of the comments. I think it might have given me brain cancer.

  • Re: So... about that Heartbleed

    [quote user="aristurtle"]Oh, it's hard everywhere. Ever create a folder in Windows where the filename ends in a space? It's totes legal in FAT32 and NTFS, and you can create one from (either) command line easily, but Explorer doesn't know what the fuck to do with it. You can't even delete it.[/quote] Bullshit. I just ...

  • Re: Is it time for a new Firefox thread yet?

    [quote user="too_many_usernames"]I'm trying to figure out what scope rules have to do with using 'set' or perhaps 'define' instead of 'let'.[/quote] It's not as important as what is happening; If you have prisoner245, and you set them free that is an action on prisoner245.

    [quote user="dkf"]And that's why shadowing is problematic. Yes, it might be a good idea in some circumstances, but more often indicates a problem. I prefer to be without it (since if I've got name overlap problems, my function is too long anyway and should be refactored).[/quote] As far as I can tell, the main reason Rust has ...
