  • Re: Infosys strikes again

    To be honest, it does do a conversion to BOOL as well. If you manage to somehow pass it something like @"YES", NULL or -3.14, it will still return just YES or NO. That's so wonderful.

     What The F* is happening with the side bar? There were several later stories than mine, and but now mine is back on top. Are they slowly moving the posts one by one to /dev/null or /dev/discourse?

     Well, it *is* electronic, after all, so an "e" is almost a given. But perhaps better -e at the end of the word, because e- in front is so 2000. The "i" could then go between the R and the M.
