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).
"Global Climate Change" in Google Scholar (scolar.google.com.au), review the top results.
I think it was OMNI magazine that had the cartoon:
"Bunsen, your work on chromatography is excellent. But what really impresses me is that cute little burner you have there."
There are roughly 4 billion public IPv4 addresses, which at $11.25 each values the IPv4 internet at about $45 Billion.
Toggle "Enable Application Framework" in project properties, save, toggle back, save again.
My C:\Windows directory (I'm running Vista Business) has 86,874 files in 15,214 folders.
I'm not sure this is a good thing.
Even if someone from Microsoft took one minute for each file to explain its function, it would take sixty days without sleep to hear it all.
Pissed on powered! Geddit? ahahaha
For all you City of Heroes players, check out ParagonWiki!
Good blog entry on FileMaker ODBC quirks.
To change the DEBUG constant (for #IF DEBUG THEN" conditional compilation statements):
encouraged practices that made programs hard to read, like omitting comments and whitespace.
I think that is a bit unfair. Given the limited memory of the C64, best programming practice was to omit comments in favour of code. Remember, C64 BASIC was interpreted, not compiled, so comments chewed up memory... memory measured in KILObytes. Comments (actually, they were called REMarks back then) were a luxury.
I was a bit young to do any serious programming on the C64, but I do remember my father rewriting a line of code to save two BYTES of code. If you didn't use up all the single letter variables before using double letter variables, or you added spaces between commands, you were simply doing it wrong.
Now we have gigabytes of RAM and terabytes of hard disk space yet computer programs don't run any faster than they used to (if anything, slower!). I think modern programmers could do worse than writing a few programs for the C64 to expose them to resource-scarce programming.
