Disdain? The Internet as a whole has been applauding and attempting to follow, where it can.
How much longer will the community itself keep going on with the same memes? There's a lot more to Fark than memes.
I'm so sorry to hear that seeing 3 ads on a page hurts your brain so much, that you turn into a giant raging spewmachine.
And even then, all you can do is throw models at it and strategies to attempt to use on those models.
... this shows how little you understand of poker. Primarily, that poker is a game played between people, and it does not involve the house. The house makes some money for providing the service of dealing the cards, but it is not involved in the game of poker.
Just playing the odds is an extremely exploitable strategy.
Heads-up or even 4-handed, you're going to clear 100 hands an hour on a single table.
I paid attention pretty thoroughly to offline poker, from '02 to about '10... and I've only ever heard of him as a guy that writes articles for Bluff. He's certainly not a name anyone I know would say is #1, when there's players out there who churn through (lose-win) more than this guy has made in his entire life, on a weekly basis.
No -- There is an absolute best way to win in chess, from every possible position, and it can be calculated. The human opponent can only screw it up for themselves. (yes, I am aware that the 100% absolutely perfect chess program has not yet been written, that will win when given a time limit, but given unlimited time, a computer will always win at chess. The only reason computers have not already done this is because of time limits. It's the same reason all casinos have betting limits -- in a game with near 50-50 odds such as perfectly played Blackjack, you can do Martingale betting, and never lose
In poker, particularly in No Limit Hold'em, you are typically up against up to 9 other opponents. The only way TO win is to figure out how to play each player individually, and adjust strategy based on that. (or figure out one really bad player and capitalize
...Is this any different from the quite common practice of buying links on multiple networks, so that you have faster connections to those networks? That thing that people have been doing for decades?
The point should be, that open source CAN be superior in these respects. It's probably pretty likely that no one but the original code author of this bug actually considered what the code was doing, and just said "Hey, looks good, accept pull request." and then no one else looked at it.
... and in a system with a good code review system, this probably would have never happened to begin with, because once you require more than a couple of people look at it, weird mistakes like that usually get caught. at least, if they are thinking about it. Pretty much all the major code errors i've seen in peer review systems get through when people just start blindly accepting code, or only comb it for style related issues. Serious flaws like what caused Heartbleed are pretty difficult to get through multiple people that are thinking.
He makes a case that 240/ addresses are not allowed with current stacks, but I just tested that with a few computers here, and it seemed to work fine
I doubt that, there'd be no reason for anyone to write it up to not understand 240*
This is slashdot. I'm certain there are plenty of people here capable of reprogramming their ISPs routers, with out the ISP even noticing.
