    [quote user="henke37"]So the code traveled back in time three years?[/quote] Um... no? The code is from 2005. Java 1.4 is from 2002.

  • Re: bad casting choice

    [quote user="arh"][quote user="morbiuswilters"]Sadly, we will be seeing WTFs like this into the 2060s because C will never just die already.[/quote] This, so very very much.

  • Re: Government Shutdown

    Quoting myself... always a bad sign... [quote user="Severity One"]On the other hand, such a deadlock as the USA experiences is practically impossible. Practically, because the Netherlands are facing the issue that the governing parties have a majority in the lower chamber of parliament (roughly comparable to the House), but not in the ...
