I have a 90 line
Maybe 20 years ago, but I just opened a file in Emacs and it loaded in about a half a second.
There are business applications, and what I would call technical applications such as image processing, geographic information systems, numerical analysis, etc. I work for a large company that does the latter, and every project that I am aware of uses C++.
You make it sound like Windows 8 is a stroke of marketing genius instead of a case of user interface design stupidity. I’ll put my money on stupidity.
Right. How are the lawyers going to make any money if everything is well defined?
- 1. The good test scores were primariy made by the math and science majors.
- 2. The good test scores were primariy made by the psyc majors.
- 3. The good test scores were evenly distributed among the various majors.
- 4.I'm delusional and I just imagined this whole thing.
I'm putting all my money on hypothesis one.
I don’t mean for this to sound arrogant, but it probably will. I was a physics major who took a statistics course that was taught in the Psychology Department and meant for psychology students. A lot of science and math majors took the course as a way to pad their GPA’s. I could see from the books the other students brought to class that about one forth of the students were science or math majors. I think I made about a 96 on the first test and was embarrassed at the thing I missed. The class average was 48 or something. The grad student teaching the course said that maybe the test was too hard, but “there were a lot of very good grades”. I have a feeling that not many of the good grades were made by the psych majors.
If I were teaching the course, I would probably emphasize the purpose of the various statistical techniques for behavioral evaluation, and not make the math portion too detailed or rigorous.
It helped manage complexity, but it increased the skill level needed to program effectively.
