No. Its not an the decline. It's a rock solid language and in a few cases i had to bind complex functionality on windows systems in a controlled way, and used C# and it was a very good experience. I donâ(TM)t see any reason that the language will decline soon. maybe it wont have explosive growth, but Java did neither grow from one day to the next.
Probably some legal bullshit, but I think the effort could be better spent in making the JVM attractive and safe for the web...
I take that the OP is neither a mathematician nor a physicist (as i am). NaN is a reasonable "Default" value for 1/0, and has the advantage that it propagates without you checking for it.
A physical or engineering simulation which divides by 0 should return NaN or terminate.
And yes, the serious reason would be that if an engineer uses ANSYS to validate if the bridge is structurally stable, i donâ(TM)t want that some asshat intentionally accepts bad meshes (i.e. meshes with "empty/zero sized cells" without errors.)
Do what you like and what you are good at.
When i started studying physics, we were tolde that we would be all unemployed. So few people studied that we never have problems in finding a Job....
I agree. the only thing which you can do is follow the instructions a little bit better than the idiots (i knew people who were not ablt to plug in the network cable at the end from where they pulled it from the router....), thus achieving the "go ahread messages" in theyr sheet a little faster.
Then try to extract information from them. For example i could verify during the fixing of the router if they really were doing something or just acting, since i asked very specifically about what has happened, and always looked if they included definitive information.
In that way you can make cure that they dont get stuck in some state (like waiting forever for a service of a subcontractor) and you can estimate the chances and the expected time of success...
Exactly what i wanted to say:
Boiled down PC beats oversized IPod touch.
Probably it should, and nevertheless both devices may be great at what they were supposed to be (lightweight PC and long-running media consumption device)
but i think it is far from worthless.
We can derive some facts from it:
a) the majority of access by the government and courts seems to take the legal route (which does not mean these accesses are completely ok with me)
b) a significant part is beyond control
c) I wont be affected; if the number of intransparent requests is less than 250, they are most likely not targeting me.
from a kind of Art requiring creativity it has become, in large parts, to pure engineering.An easter egg is unspecified behaviour, so it's dangerous in anything besides games.
* consistent management, with constant goals over a year
* doable project deadlines
* fair distribution of responsibilities and influence
* colleagues who are professional and competent
* HR which actuallty understands it works for the rest of the company
Old chemistry university textbooks (even for beginners) contain everything you need to know about how to make explosives.
It may be less condensed (you actually may have to read 100 pages), and it may not be in the form of "mix a and b and cook on the oven at 200 degree", but I would not follow some simple recipe withou understanding every step anyway (i actually dont play with explosive chemistry at all, too many stupic kids blew off their fingers).
Not sure if that should be +12V, +18V, or +48V, but it's time to have an integrate power management for all your home, avoiding power supplys on standby.
Former quantum computing researcher here:
Linking High-level Brain functions to Quantum Computing is BS. Long before we reach the technology to build a QC big enough to compete here, we will have the technology to build a calssical computer simulating the brain. As a matter of fact, since the brain is mainly associative and works in by throwing away lots of infromation, which is something which is not good for QC.
Not sure what you mean, i mean there are *bad* java web apps, but if you choose well from the many design paradigms available in the different Java Frameworks/Libraries, then you can obtain pretty well defined web apps.
The occurence of in a project may not necessarily reflect the attitude of the project towards gender issues, but may be more reflecting the percentage of women in a team.
It is funny how somebody who acts as a CTO tries to convert a test which specifically examines the dialogs (which are untimatly a important part of a movie) to something where the statistics will skew results to meaningless garbage to derive from some weird side definition.
Maybe she was mistaken, function calls are not human interaction. More interesting would be an closer look at the process of the creation of the function (like "at least two roles in the project interacting directly must be filled by women") Still, there would be the statistics issue with this, but at least it could tell something about the human interaction.
