Will it finally be able to figure out the aspect ratio of the source material?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
It's 25 years old. How can it be the word of this year?
The wording of the bet states the criterion for deciding the result. You'd be betting on what the department of labor says, not "reality".
Always write your comment before reading the article. That way your mind will remain uncluttered.
This was a bad demonstration of relativistic effects. All it really does is demonstrate the Doppler effect, and it does that poorly. People are evidently not warm, because they do not glow when infrared light becomes visible. Chimneys do, but so do shadows under roofs.
The huge mushrooms emit what, gamma rays? They emit light that is visible even when enormously red-shifted.
There is no Sun or sky. No campfires. No warm machinery. No radios. No flowers with UV patterns. Nothing familiar that will illustrate something interesting about the Doppler shift and the world of invisible light.
It's a nifty idea, but finish it before releasing it.
If you don't understand the difference between coding and writing a text document, you are beyond help.
You may be using a computer, but you're not understanding what you're doing with it.
Because the former is less of a burden than the latter?
Sounds like somebody lost his job to a better coder, but doesn't want to admit it.
If it's so easy, what's stopping you from refactoring your code to fit the common style? I'm amazed you still have to make this an issue.
Seriously? You are reading the code, fixing bugs, and you find formatting problems. So you back out your half-complete changes, fix the formatting, commit that change, then re-apply your fix-in-progress? You actually do that? Of course you don't.
The better policy is that code must be formatted correctly when it is committed the first time. Which is why we have style guidelines in the first place.
Coders should spend their time looking at the code, not getting distracted by style variations.
What, your editor is too dumb to insert the right number of spaces when you hit enter? Ouch.
So nobody at your shop puts comments on the same line as code? Why? Was it forbidden by the style?
