Slashdot now looks like an old Blogger page. I hate blogger pages, they're last decade thing. If Beta becomes all I can have, I'm leaving slashdot. They weren't getting anything from me anyway, so I guess it's one less connection to their crappy servers anyway.

A POSIX mutex can be initialized via a call to a library function or, alternatively, it can be "statically initialized" with the constant value of PTHREAD_MUTEX_INITIALIZER, which initializes it and sets default attributes. It's not exactly "clearing the memory to 0", but it's along the lines of that train of thought

To me, it isn't about writing that weird code. It's about knowing what happens, so that I DO know when I really need to optimize and so that I DO know what's going on under the hood. I find it very important to understand the CPU and memory, how it all works. Many programmers still think of this as magic, and that's why they're programmers, not engineers. But this post mentions software engineering, not mere programming.
