  • Re: No paste for you... but drag is OK

    [quote user="TGV"] It's batshit level stupidity. It's almost as if these decisions are being taken by people that don't know a thing about security. [/quote] The Web is full of stupidity like that. For example, every time I type my CC number, I get "enter only digits, spaces are not allowed" even ...

  • Re: Secure webmail

    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]Yeah, just generate it from the password. That's actually how most systems that encrypt data using a user-supplied password work, because all of crypto algorithms require a fixed-length key. So say you need a 128-byte key for encryption, you sha1 the user-supplied password and then take the first 128 ...

  • Re: Custom flooring

    [quote user="snuffles"]Not really; integral() just returns denominator == 1 && numerator != 0, no need for modular arithmetic.[/quote] What? 0 is not an integer? [quote user="snuffles"][quote user="Planar"]What you should do is decompose quotient into its numerator num and denominator dem and compute rem ...

  • Re: Custom flooring

    [quote user="snuffles"]I should also mention that yes, I profiled the code and this function was a hotspot.[/quote] Then you can optimize it further, because callint quotient.integral() and floor(quotient.to_double()) is basically doing twice the same work. What you should do is decompose quotient into its numerator num and ...

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

    [quote user="mt@ilovefactory.com"]If you don't want eclipse to cache things from disk, just enable the setting which force eclipse to always check if a file have changed on disk before accessing the cached version.  [/quote] You mean "work correctly" is an option, and it's disabled by default. I've seen that ...

  • Re: Wow... just.... wow.

    [quote user="El_Heffe"][quote user="TGV"]you can't pick up sounds up to 150kHz with a smartphone,[/quote] It takes very specialized (i.e., expensive) equipment for anything above 20khz. You're certainly not going to do it with a phone or any standard off-the-shelf microphone. The best microsphones available, costing ...

  • Re: Someone somewhere thought this was a good idea

    [quote user="blakeyrat"](Which also brings up a different question-- why would a script need to *focus* something?) [/quote] If you make it scriptable, you must make ALL OPERATIONS scriptable, otherwise your scripting API is just a piece of shit.
