The reason that most extensions exist is that there is (or was) no way of implementing things that people want with standard C. Inline assembly is one example. All modern C compilers support it, but GCC and Microsoft's compilers use different syntax (most other compilers implement one or the other, sometimes both). Without it, you require that every time you want to use even a single instruction of platform-specific assembly code, you must write an entire function and call it.
Atomics were another big reason for extensions. Prior to C11, if you wanted atomic operations, you needed either assembly or non-standard compiler intrinsics. Efficient vector support is another one.
So, since I'm reading Slashdot in USA, I shouldn't have to worry about links to goat.cx ?
Only worry if you enjoy them...
Sure. I don't know what the "ass" part of the name signifies, but the second syllable is from the Greek phagein, to eat. That means this virus eats your butt. What a great name.
Chromium Chloride is purple, so clearly, this is a Purple People Eater... is it airborne?
Nobody believes you except for the fools and the gullible. US == liars. Obama == Hitler.
Hitler leads on countries invaded 24 to 4,
Hitler was also a far better public speaker; convinced millions of people that blonde haired people were superior - when he had brown hair.
I bet you could not tell the difference between a civilian plane and a military plane flying at 30,000 feet over a war zone either.
I could. The civilian plane would have a radar transponder that said "Hi, I am Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17".
It is absolutely technically possible to filter based on source IP address country.
Not unless you disallow VPNs at the border, it isn't.
If Google is censoring their results, they could do so no just on the basis of which version of Google receives the request, but on the basis of the requesting IP address.
Google blocks it by domain. Domain is specific to country by registrar. If someone in the UK goes to google.com instead of google.co.uk, it's up to the UK to dick with their ISP and DNS results to force redirect them into the UK legal sandbox where the content is controlled.
You know, just like China.
Legally forcing a commercial entity to act as part of your own implementation of "The Great Firewall of China" is not the same thing as not being censorious dicks yourself. An unfunded mandate to force someone to do your dirty work for you does not make it any less your dirty work.
"why haven't cellular data providers figured out a way to offer more than 5 GB per month at a reasonable price in the past decade".
They have. The FCC has. They need much more of the spectrum to do it which means shutting off broadcast TV which no one uses.
Funny. The way NTT solved the problem a quarter of a century ago was to increase cell density to decrease per cell load. They don't need more spectrum.
With cell towers your individual bandwidth is a function of how many people are using that tower. If you aren't getting enough you add towers, simple as that. It just costs money and the cell companies find it's more profitable to throttle than upgrade their network. Throttling your internet/cellphone is free, so long as everyone does it to prevent competition.
