Comment Unstoppable (Score 2) 27

Itâ(TM)s difficult to tell from this article whether they will massacre mankind or merely enslave them. One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them. The drones will soon be here.

And I for one welcome our new drone overlords. Iâ(TM)d like to remind them that as a trusted Slashdot personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground battery caves.

Dividing by zero *should* crash your program.

What if you were depending on the result of that division to determine which function to call.

if(x == 0) doThis();
else doThat();

An incorrect result of 0 could lead to unpredictable results, which is bad for a program. It's better to make sure your input is clean so it doesn't come up in the first place.
