  • Re: What.TheDailyWTF.com -- Discourse site

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"][quote user="blakeyrat"]I'm really starting to hate this asshole.[/quote] I was a big fan of his blog in the early days, mostly because he wrote about things from a real-user perspective and often was a bit of a n00b to tech stuff. Then he started Expert Sexchange rip-off and went mad ...

  • Re: bad casting choice

    [quote user="arh"]Just look at Objective C. Whopee, another C language etching into the skull of a new generation, ensuring that in 20 years, someone will reinvent the garbage collector, call it something new and be hailed as a genius by their fellow idiots.[/quote] He guys I have an idea! We have a garbage collector in Obj C but it ...

  • Re: Yet another Bitcoin fail

    Yes my bad, removing it from the list doesn't actually kill it. In the same list choosing "App info" bring you to a screen with a "Force Stop"/"Stop now" (don't have english android, so string might be slightly different) button. Also, I must say that I have about 20 which I regularly use and never notice ...

  • Re: Yet another Bitcoin fail

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]It's a fairly new version.. 4.1, maybe? But, no, you're wrong, I still have to manually kill processes when memory starts running low, or else mobile Chrome runs like shit.[/quote] You don't need a task killer though, if you go to the active apps overview (button right to home) and long-press ...

  • Re: Secure webmail

    [quote user="Planar"]That's fine for symmetric crypto, but to make a good public/private key pair you need a lot of entropy. Your 128-byte example only provides 1024 bits, which is not considered secure these days. You'd need at least 2000 bits to be reasonably secure. Good luck getting that much entropy from a user-generated ...

  • Re: unstructured optimization

    [quote user="dtech"]Solution: write a benchmark demonstrating both "optimization" steps and see if they actually do anything.[/quote] here you go. Note: It's been years since I last touched C and I never had any real experience with it. In the few runs I did the differences were in the milliseconds (with 1 millions ...

  • Re: O(n) logging?

    [quote user="Ben L."]Since you said the file took 0.5 to 1 second to show each log message when it was 6MB, and nearly 0 seconds to show each log message when it started empty, let's do some science. It could be O(n), but since you hadn't noticed it before, it could be something more like O(n2) or O(2n), or even O(n!n-k) if they ...

    [quote user="Lorne Kates"]How did this get into the wild? How? HOW?  HOW? GIANT RED COMIC-SANS HOW THAT I AM TOO LAZY TO CHANGE THE HTML FOR?!??!?!?[/quote] FTFY. I can't believe that after 25 replies no-one took this most-important task up on himself
