  • Re: bad casting choice

    Wow that's bad. But I think the real wft is c, because the code is valid. How can you have a typed language which implicit cast an int to a pointer. (I had to start gcc just to test if this is really valid c code. It is).

  • Re: The things people do for money...

    [quote user="mott555"]GPL is cancer and I will fight to the death anyone who disagrees with me. Many cool features in commercial software I've worked on were canned due to only being possible (quickly) by relying on some obscure poorly-implemented third-party library licensed with cancer GPL, the bosses being unwilling to commit ...

  • Re: The things people do for money...

    [quote user="Snooder"] [quote user="blakeyrat"]Freedom means "fewer restrictions". Always. To redefine it as, "more restrictions", regardless of the intent of those restrictions is a bullshit move. [/quote] So, tell me, is a country where a landholder has an unrestricted right to kill, beat or torture ...

  • Re: Eclipse is broken (but we knew that)

    [quote user="dkf"] and the way it caches stuff in mysterious ways instead of just loading it off disk when needed is very close to the centre of the WTF. (Either that or maybe the way it screws with the class loader system, which is outright scary.)[/quote]  If you don't want eclipse to cache things from disk, just enable the ...

  • Why would the ta need to run the code?

    It might be because i went to an univercity with focus on theory, but why would the grader need to run the software at all? I meen it's a a data structure course, so in order to do any usefull grading he would need to read the source code. What possible information could you get from running the software? Oh, And I do think that eclipse+cdt ...

  • Re: autoboxing

    [quote user="dkf"] The real problem is that the equality operations on both Integer and Long don't make the values the same. I usually consider any autoboxing to be a bit of a code smell, though there are places where it is totally necessary (e.g., method calls that take a variable number of arguments).[/quote]  But having ...

  • Re: Recursive Java Installer

    [quote user="fire2k"]  Gratulations, you are now security maintainer of a version of java. We hope you handle this gracefully and responsibly. And now do go celebrate. [/quote]  But that is no risk. Since the java is not installed(Just copied to the same folder as the program) it don't interact with any browsers or ...

  • Re: Recursive Java Installer

     [quote user="OldCrow"]  A friend of mine says that he ships a version of JRE with all his software. Not an installer, but bare binary files in a subfolder of the program's installation folder. It works, he says... [/quote] That does work perfectly, and it was what our company did, back when we released Windows ...

  • Re: An open MySQL bug now has a birthday cake

    [quote user="daveime"]Anyone relying on a query optimizer is the kind of person who does full table SELECTs over multiple LEFT JOIN tables, and really has no business being anywhere near a database. [/quote]  You will have to explain that one. What are the alternative to relaying on the query optimizer? Do you expect me to do all ...
