I don't care much about looks, and this is certainly one of the best laptops available now, I'd like very much to have one. But I don't understand why do they make thinkpads so ugly. It seems almost intentional.
In fact, with insurance, the tax payer will pay more on average than without insurance.
It's wonderful how insurance works on a greater scale.
He's asking the question because the pattern occurs a few times, and he fears that it may look bad with long variable names.
Given that, I think the current top answer (by user coredump) is a good suggestion, since it prevents duplicate code by using a function. So it basically says his code is good enough, just encapsulate it in a function (although the function name was a poor choice in my opinion).
Also, I think the answer you refer to (I believe it's the one by user Doc Brown) is a good suggestion, although it may not be the best in that particular case. But what if all of a sudden the pattern is repeated but with more possibilities (like 4, 5 and 6 variables)? You'd need a more generic function, and this particular answer provides a step in that direction (although again I think the function and variables names were poor choices - probably because it was just an example). And he even says at the end of the answer: if you don't need a generic approach for more variables, your code is fine, and maybe you can use coredump's approach.
Of course, my opinions reflect my thoughts about coding, mainly these: avoid duplicate code like the plague, and make some (or a lot of) effort creating the best function names possible (even though "best" is highly subjective in this case).
Wait, you're telling me systemd is stable? Like, debian-stable level (or should I say debian-level stable)?
A super important core system software that had its initial release 5 years ago?
Is Debian still Debian?
It runs my apps, and I'm glad I don't need to use Windows for that.
AngularJS is not an alternative or competitor of jQuery.
I'm not an expert in any of them, but given my limited knowledge, I think that summarizes it well.
WTF. You just turned me into a total systemd hater now.
I just looooove when the people being bashed in the comments come up defending their position! Thanks a lot for all the info griffey!
Surely a "Blackrola" phone would be a hit in Brazil.
Tor provides anonymity. It does not provide authenticity or secrecy, and doesn't pretend to.
Not only it doesn't provide these things, it potentially cripples then by adding a random computer as a Man In The Middle! What did you guys expect?
Also, seeing that people who usually perform activities of this type (spreading malware) should be the ones most interested in TOR, I see some signs as to the kind of organizations who would attempt to do this...
If you want to follow someone - pick Apple. Given the way news coverage is, if there's a problem with someone somewhere and their SSD in their Apple product, the whole world would know in a nanosecond. Someone as heavily scrutitinized as Apple (where even one failure in millions of computers sold would probably bring about SSD-gate) means if there is a real problem, you'd already know.
Don't be so sure about that. I and many others have had problems with the GPU soldering on 2011 Macbook Pros. This has been affecting lots of users since last year, and although there was some media coverage, I don't think it's gathering enough attention as you seem to imply it would.
40 minutes already and no comment with a score over 2!
Also, I'm pretty sure cups don't always have the same volume. Which one am I supposed to use??
That reminds me of this quite interesting article:
Unbelievable. I went straight to walmart.com to verify your claim, and now I'm definitely amazed.
It's incredible how cheap these things have gotten.
